IXL's first-grade math module provides drill sets that address more than 150 skills across 19 categories, including place values, fractions, mixed operations, and probability and statistics. The topics here are quite specific, which should help you easily find material that correlates to a particular standard or learning objective. However, it's probably best to teach these concepts yourself, in class -- the drills lend themselves best to practice and assessment. You might even use these drills as a quick, fun, and easy way to administer tests or quizzes.

If you have some quick learners who might thrive with something new, you might send them to IXL first, to introduce a topic. If you do this, the site's adaptive engine and progress-tracking features let kids progress at their own pace, while you can keep track of how they're doing. Review kids' progress reports to help point them toward areas for improvement, through either in-class work or extra drills on the site (or Chrome app).

Great Review for First Graders
This is a great tool to use for review or formative assessment. If we are starting a new topic I will assign a section to the students to see who understands it and who needs more help. It covers a variety of skills and provides small incentive stickers when they complete a task. It provides feedback to teachers on the paid version, but students can still practice a few problems for free each day without having an account.
