  • Drill sets address many Common Core-related skills.
  • Kids can click to listen to audio instructions, or read them.
  • Incorrect responses elicit bare-bones explanations.
  • Drills approach each math topic in a variety of ways. Here kids explore addition with word problems.

How Can Teachers Use It?

IXL's Kindergarten math module has practice drills for 127 skills in 20 categories, including fractions, geometry, counting, patterns, addition, and subtraction. Concept coverage is pretty thorough and quite specific, so you should easily find practice problems to match anything you're teaching in class. To start off, introduce and teach a concept using some of your own hands-on activities and in-class lessons, then use IXL's drills for assessment and extra practice.

Be aware that for wrong answers, feedback is bare-bones and -- unlike drill questions -- not available on an audio track. Keep a close eye on your kids' progress to gauge where they'll need extra help. When using the site for practice, make the most of IXL's adaptive features which helps the program meet kids right at their level with customized learning paths.
