Fifth grade teacher Lisa Ivy has been an IXL believer for seven years, and she uses IXL Math extensively with her class at Mary Williams Elementary School in Dumfries, Virginia. She’s a big fan of IXL’s real-time analytics feature because it gives her the data she needs to monitor student progress, keep her administrators informed, and make better instructional decisions in the classroom.

There are over 7,000 languages spoken in the world today, and over 300 of those are spoken in the U.S., so chances are your students speak some of them. Strategies for teaching ELLs often focus on learning English as quickly as possible, and once students master English, their native languages are often left at home. But rather than think of your classroom as a Tower of Babel, you can celebrate and recognize your students’ linguistic heritage while still moving towards English proficiency.
