Thinking blocks: Modeling word problems and operations with fractions, ratios, and whole numbers

Math
Playground tools including Cuisenaire rods, pattern blocks,
geoboard, a function machine, transformations, a pretty good spinner,
fraction-decimal-percent scales, an algebra balance scale,
transformation tool, long division... rather a lot of useful stuff!

In particular, I've decided I rather like professor x and the factorbots (though I don't know how to make it into a good lesson)

Multiplication blocks is great for factoring

Animal Rescue is pretty good for negative number visualization:

The Math Cats tessellation pictures are kind of fun

This looks like a useful list too:

I also like the games at Manga High: https://app.mangahigh.com/home/games

and Lure of the Labyrinth: https://labyrinth.thinkport.org/www/ I've decided the first set of puzzles (the cafeteria puzzles) would be good when working with ratios. (maybe)

Glencoe has some pretty good virtual manipulatives:

These are good virtual base 10 blocks

the other virtual manipulatives look promising too:

good number line and a good base 10 blocks app

Dreambox. I like the third grade number line tools (though they need a little instruction)

I like this decimal and fraction sum estimator
