Ten Days of Technology for First Grade

Welcome to Ten Days of Technology for First Grade! Daily for the next ten days I will focus on a program, app or technology integration that I use in my first grade classroom. The featured technology will be easy for you to use and more importantly will be excellent for your students. Today I'm sharing Sum Dog with you. All of the children like to use Sum Dog to practice math. They can access Sum Dog at home as well as school. There are not a lot of directions on the site but it is easy to manage. You sign up and enter your children and then you need to set the activity levels. To start with you should set everyone at Level One for numbers, addition and subtraction. The program will self level after the children play. Only your most advanced children would use Level Two at this time during the year. You can access reports about accuracy, speed and skills. We are enjoying using Sum Dog and we would love to have another first grade class to have some "friendly competitions with" as this is one of the features of the program. What technology do you use in your classroom? Cheers,


  1. What a great website! I'm featuring this post on Bagels and Blogs tomorrow. :)

  2. Hi Sarah! I love using Sumdog with my students as well. We'd love if you could come back and link this post up next week for math since this week's was about reading. Thanks so much!
