Subject: Connecting hands-on and technology for remedial math

I am trying to design a remedial math lab for students at my elementary school who have not been able to pass the state math assessment at 3rd and 5th grades in Oregon. I am trained in cognitively guided instruction and feel these students were moved from the concrete to abstract activities before they understood the concepts. I am trying to find a computer program that is a self-paced sequential remedial math program that could be adapted to using hands-on activities with the help of cross-age tutors. It needs to cover 2nd- 5th grades (hopefully 6th, too). Is there anything like this already being done? What programs do you suggest? Any ideas along this line? Thank you!
