Many times, it isn’t enough to just do the work in order to learn new skills. You know what they say…”Practice makes perfect!” IXL gives students the opportunity to practice Math and Language Arts skills in order to master them. IXL offers distraction-free online learning for students who need a little extra time to grasp new concepts, or maybe just want to test their own skills. Members of the Schoolhouse Review Crew received 1 year of access to IXL’s Math and Language Arts learning.
With over 3,000 Math skills ranging in grades from Preschool to Precalculus, and topics such as shape counting, money, Algebra, Geometry, and so much more, you’re sure to find the extra help your child needs with their Math studies. Students receive immediate feedback for each question answered. Students have the ability to do the lessons as many times as they wish, and even earn medals and virtual prizes based on their skills mastery.
The Language Arts portion offers practice skills for grades 2-8, with nearly 800 skills available. Lessons range from the basics like nouns, articles, and alphabetical order, to more advanced skills such as ellipses, analogies, and Greek and Latin roots.
Parents also have the ability to view their child’s performance via progress reports that detail proficiency, trouble areas, and progress toward state standards. You can also view usage information, and details on completed assignments.
