-->What I do with this page is get my kids into groups, give each group a whiteboard, and then let the group that gets the right answer come up and put the change on the Smart board. Then, I have the class give them thumbs up or down as to whether it's the smallest number of coins to use for the amount (so they get more points).

I like this page because it has online activities in many of the language art standards. It's not the greatest for assessing kids online because there's no way to see the results, but it's a good tool to give us teachers questions in different standards. It also could be given to parents as an online resource that could help struggling readers.

Fun pages to see and try out on a smartboard:
Set of videos with quizzes on every subject area at practically every grade level. This is, unfortunately, a subscription service. There is a short free-trial. And some videos are offered free all the time. It is worth talking to powers-that-be to see if school or district licenses can be purchased.
