    With fourth grade, I use a timed reading app that measures and records oral fluency rates. I love the Brainpop app, and the National Science Foundation has a wonderful one, with all kinds of pictures that kids wouldn't get to see otherwise. Keep in mind, though, I may use mine differently, since it is my personal iPad, and I hook it up to my classroom projector to share with the kids. My own fourth and second grader use Rocket Math nightly to practice facts/have fun, too.
