Just keep swimming! The games and videos listed below are far more helpful than one might think! Each game is specifically chosen as practice for one of our essential standards. They are fun to play and are designed to address specific skills that students need to learn in order to be successful in fourth grade.
*8/10/2014: Please note that due to our transition from CA to CCSS standards, the games on these lists might currently be a bit out-of-order, or not as rigorous as what we may practice in class. Also, links have not been verified since July 2013. FYI!
