I love technology. I think that it helps the students a lot when it comes to review. Sometimes a website can make reviewing a concept fun, and of course kids will remember the material easier if it is in a game format . This website isn't one that I found recently, but the past couple of years I have my students use it ALL THE TIME.
Internet 4 Classrooms (www.internet4classrooms.com) has been a wonderful tool in my classroom. It's free to use, and contains grade level skills for students to practice. This website links up different games in each category from all over the web. I usually use it for Language Arts review, since my students have a subscription for ixl to help them in Math. They cover grade levels from PreK to 8th grade.
On Internet 4 Classrooms I use the Grade Level Help Menu , then my students go to 4th grade Language Arts to work. Below is a picture of the set up on the grade level help. You can see there are different options.

Here is what the Language Arts section for 4th grade looks like, each grade level is set up pretty much the same:
I'm pretty new to Google Docs (so I hope this works), but here is the game sheet that my students use to play the different games and earn class prizes. It's functional. It's in a document, so you could change the skills and strategies that are on the bottom of the form to match up with your grade level.
I have this website available to my students all year on our class website, but it's really in March when we start the major "test prep" that I have them do these fun activities to really review their grammar and reading skills. This is the site that I pull up on my Now!board to play game when we have those 5 minute windows of time. On the class computers or at home they fill in the game board and turn it in for class tickets. It has worked great for me the past 2 years. Hope it helps you as well.
