I'm going to recommend Scratch. Scratch is a free program that is specifically designed to do what you are looking for: teaching kids the concepts of programming in an easy way without making them worry about learning syntax.
Scratch is programmed in a drag-and-drop interface. The commands are all color coded by type, and are shaped in a way that they ...

I can propose following:
Memory Game For Kids - an open source classic memorize game with nice looking tiles
I played this game on a 10" tablet with Android 4.1 and it looked very good (based on screenshots it is possible to run it also on mobile phones). This is an open source (GPL3+) project and the game is available for free, without adverts and no ...

Note that Luminosity is subscription based.

I think that Moodle is a great option. You can create online courses and give access only to your students. Features such as badges are also available. I have used it as a student and not as a teacher. I cannot answer if it is easy to moderate it, but I think that I am enthusiast about it from the part of studying with it.
On the main site, you will find ...
DragonBox helps children learn algebra using a very novel technique. It comes in 2 versions: a 5+ and a 12+ version.
I've only bought the 5+ version, not the 12+ version, so can't comment on the latter. But the 5+ version definitely helps you learn basic algebra concepts by pattern-matching, and I've found it to be a very cool concept. (You may not get far ...

With Scratch, you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations — and share your creations with others in the online community.
Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively — ...
SymPy Gamma is a free web application based on SymPy. It returns step-by-step solutions for some types of high school / college math problems, for example:
Find the derivative of x*sin(x)**2
It's rougher around the edges and the syntax is a bit more rigid than WolframAlpha's. One can use ^ instead of ** for ...
The latest update of HxD was released in July 2018 and among its new features is the Data Inspector.
This is a display pane which is open by default and shows various interpretations of the data at the cursor, including binary. As you move the cursor, this display updates automatically. It's not exactly what you asked for, since you can only see the one ...
Here is another online Logo available at https://vrmath2.net/VRM2. I hope the 3D Turtle is good looking enough. If not, it can be changed to a fish or airplane. This Logo allows open/save logo files as well as image and x3d files. Note: there are a few file types to open and save. For Logo files, please open in Logo Editor (from Window menu, or click on the ...
Oh, ow: no ox?
On a Linux system, it's standard to have a text file containing a list of English words, for the use of applications such as spell checkers. (Some spell checkers have their own list in a format that they can search faster than plain text.) A typical location is /usr/share/dict/words or /usr/share/misc/words or /usr/lib/dict/words or some such....
I'd recommend Canvas.
Canvas is a learning management system that supports most of the features that you have noted in your post.
online assignments (from paper submissions to simple text to file upload to online quizzes),
attendance features including tracking absence and tardiness, and (AFAIK) allowing parents to subscribe to attendance ...
Moodle would be the software of your choice.
Most online course creators/educators use Moodle recently, and has been evolving pretty fast.
It also has a large community. So, it would be easy to setup and navigate.
I have used a site which is built on Moodle, and it's pretty smooth and very easy to use with a wonderful set of features.
Its features ...

Xournal is the best tool I found to write with a digital pen. It makes for a terrible image editor, but being able to move the traces that you've written/drawn around is a great feature. I recommend binding the lazo tool to the side button in your pen. Also, by default it shows very ugly horizontal lines, notebook style. You can change that to a plain black ...
I really do not know if that age is suitable for learning programming. Smart is totally subjective.
At that age, some exercises could be logical, sequences. For example on the rabbit and the turtle story, what was first, the starting of the race or the rabbit is sleep? What is the consequences of that event? Logic is an important part of programming. He ...
I'd like to recommend the python LOGO module - turtle (part of the standard library, and thus pre-installed on most linux distros).
I suppose it's best suited for the older kids, but (in my opinion) it's much more gratifying than scratch or the like, since it's a real programming language. After teaching programming basics using turtle, you can naturally ...
