Now that the school supplies have been purchased and class is back in session, the real challenge begins: keeping the excitement of learning alive.
As teachers and parents, you know what works for your kids. Whether you deck your classroom with motivational posters or make a point to ask your child about his or her school day, we know it’s because you care. In our eyes, that makes you a world-class hero. But sometimes even heroes can use a sidekick.
Here are a few ways IXL math can support your efforts to make learning a meaningful experience for the students in your life:
- It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s…kids practicing math on a Saturday? Yes, this actually happens! Our colorful website and interactive questions give kids the chance to exercise their math muscles while having fun at the same time.
- Holy content, Mathman! IXL offers pre-K math through algebra (with geometry arriving in just a few days!) and is completely aligned to all state and Common Core standards. No matter what skill students are learning in class, IXL has it covered.
- With great effort comes great reward. You know better than anyone that kids crave rewards and recognition. That’s why IXL is filled with hidden virtual prizes and printable certificates. Who doesn’t love an adorable puffin or rockin’ guitar?
- You’ve got the power…of assessment. We enjoy making your job a little easier with progress reports that pack a punch. Our detailed reports track student usage and performance on IXL to help you answer questions like, ‘What are my child’s trouble spots?’ or ‘Is my class ready for state testing?’
At the end of the day, meaningful learning experiences come down to people and the relationships that have been built between them. A passion-driven teacher is a model for his or her students, while an involved parent can be just the confidence booster a student needs to start a path towards lifelong learning. At IXL, we help where we can because we know your job—as a teacher and/or parent—isn’t easy. Every once in a while, we hope you’ll take the time to pat yourself on the back and remember that not all heroes wear capes.
Here’s to a successful school year!
