Parents, did you know IXL isn’t just for schools? You and your children can also take advantage of it at home. We offer monthly and yearly memberships just for families!
Here are some reasons we’ve heard from parents about why they love having IXL at home:
- Have fun—no, really! One of our favorite user stories is from a parent in Minnesota, whose 4-year-old son asked, “Daddy—If I eat all my vegetables, can I study math?” IXL is so full of colorful images and exciting prizes that kids really feel like they’re playing a game, even as they’re learning math concepts. Children’s willingness to practice math on IXL makes your job as a parent so much easier—although you just may have to tear them away at bedtime!
- Improve children’s self-confidence. At home on IXL, kids can do math at their own pace. They can use it to reinforce a topic they’ve learned in class (with 2,000+ skills available on IXL, we’re bound to have it!) or even get ahead of the curve. As their understanding of math skills increases, so does their confidence in their own abilities. Once they “get” a skill on IXL, they have no problem translating their understanding to problems they receive in class.
- Get involved in your children’s education. Not only can you see the problems your children receive as they practice on IXL, but you also have access to a parent dashboard that lets you check on their progress in real time. We offer more than 10 parent reports that help you answer questions like, “How can I help my child catch up, or get ahead?” and “How much has my child improved since the beginning of the school year?”
Even if you can’t be there for every step of your children’s learning journey, you can still play an important role in their education. IXL helps you make math practice a family affair!
