What do a leopard seal, a motorcycle, and Saturn all have in common? They’re all one of the awesome prizes kids can win on IXL!
We know it’s not always easy to get kids excited about practicing math, which is why we created IXL game boards. The boards start off blank, but with practice, practice, practice, kids can fill the squares with all kinds of treasures! They earn virtual prizes for accomplishments like mastering a skill or practicing for a certain amount of time. The game boards are unique to each child, and the anticipation of uncovering a virtual prize keeps kids intrigued for hours—often inspiring competition amongst classmates and friends.
To make things even more engaging, every grade level has its own game board and theme, like a mini world just waiting to be explored. Kids can wander through a winter wonderland in fourth grade, enjoy the great outdoors in sixth grade, or discover the mysteries of outer space when practicing geometry. A square with a question mark tells them a prize is just around the corner. If they hover over it with their pointer, they can see what they need to do to collect their award—just the nudge they need to keep practicing!
(Tip: Kids can turn their favorite prize into their personal avatar by simply dragging and dropping it in the top right corner of the window, next to their name.)
