Freckle Math has become an essential tool for third and fourth-grade teachers in both distance learning and classroom settings. Teachers rely on this platform to differentiate instruction and address the unique needs of each student, regardless of their math proficiency. By aligning with state standards, Freckle's adaptive math platform allows teachers to measure students' progress and tailor their learning experience accordingly. The integration of Freckle with Star Assessments ensures that students are working at their appropriate level.

Teachers utilize Freckle on a daily basis to offer student choice options and assign custom assignments. The platform's feedback, collaboration, and motivational features keep students engaged throughout their math journey. Freckle particularly proves valuable for Title 1 reading teachers and Dyslexia Specialists who can create classes for students with different grade levels, assigning lessons based on individual needs. It enables teachers to track progress, identify areas requiring further instruction, and provide additional support for students who are behind their peers in multiple grade levels. Besides being used by individual teachers, Freckle is widely adopted on a school-wide or district-wide basis, catering to grades K through 6.

  • adaptive math practice
  • math fact practice
  • a variety of reading in fiction and non fiction
  • targeted math practice
  • ability to focus on common core standards
  • There are SO many options- more training on how to limit and set focus would help
  • more training on how to assign and what to assign to influence growth reports
  • focus skills and missing skills should automatically be assigned- not something teachers need to find in a report to assign

  • Simple and clear reports that provide a meaningful snapshot of student achievement.
  • Great tech support and assistance to navigate the Freckle journey.

  • It is simple and easy to give assignments. I can see sample questions, see the standards, and check students' scores/results with ease. It is also easy for the students to find their results.
  • Logging in is easy for students. There is a class code and then they simply type in their name.
  • Freckle is fun for students. They love earning coins and getting the chance to buy different accessories for their avatars.
  • I wish it had more standards under targeted practice for math.
