How I Use It
In my first grade classroom, my students learned how to add and subtract within 20 fluently. They learned multiple strategies when solving addition and subtraction equations. Instead of doing the typical pages in their math books, each student received an Ipad and logged onto IXL in order to practice the strategy that was taught. IXL is a math program that my first graders have no issues navigating through. They receive a username and password at the beginning of the school year and it is a good way for them to get the continued practice they may need at home or in school.
My Take
I like IXL for my students. They would rather work on an Ipad rather then in a book. Once the children get the hand of logging in, they are able to log in with no issue.
