TECH TOOLS for ELA
Limited Capacity seats available

Come experience the tech tools I use in my ELA class. The full scope of our new HMH Reading curriculum online assessment & data portal piece is amazing.  We will slow the pace down and get hands-on practice accessing the different components. During the half- day of  training we had earlier in the year, I walked away with a sudden surge of "tech-terror" racing through me. When I decided to face my fear,it didn't take but a few clicks before I began discovering the wealth of online tools HMH has to offer the classroom teacher.  Let us share what we have learned that can make your ELA classes run smoother with less stress.

Freckle - Part 2 of double session
Limited Capacity filling up

Students automatically practice at their level

Freckle offers over 50,000 math questions covering K-9 standards. Students start off with a diagnostic, and after that, our algorithms show them problems at their own skill level.

With the click of a button, you can assign a specific standard to one (or all) of your students. You can even generate personalized worksheets if your students don’t have access to technology at home.

Students build math fact fluency by testing their ability to recall the basic facts in all four operations, accurately and quickly. Think of Freckle Fact Practice as computerized, adaptive flash cards.
