How I Use It
For math and english class it is helpful to have a support tool that helps teachers to keep students working and practicing.
IXL is helping our school with that important issue. Specially in special needs students, they are working in different rithms and practice can be done in different levels.
As a teaching tool I found IXL a great way to help me with my students, so anyone is left behind.
With different lessons, I select them according to every student needs, so the group can keep up.
Awards in the "Math" section are great, I use them along with other school awards as well, for example, if a student comes up with a "star" , he can have an extra 5 points in a quizz, or 2 points in the monthly test.
It would be great if this Awards system can be used as well for Language arts, it only applies for Math.
