Sun’s out, learning is on! Summer is finally here and now’s the perfect time to expand your mind and learn new things. To help you out, we’ve created a bunch of fun, free resources so students can make the most of the break and become self-motivated learners!
Make real-world connections with summer learning activities
As students get outside this summer, ask them to make real-world connections with our fun learning activities. Whether it’s building a floating ship, trying out geocaching, measuring angles in real life, or creating a catchy newspaper headline for their book, there’s something for everyone! Check them out here.
Encourage students to be reflective learners
Our reflection logs are a great opportunity for students to flex their growth mindset muscles. By using their IXL Recommendations wall or choosing a report from IXL Analytics, students can set goals and chart their growth over the break. Find them here.
Motivate students to practice and discover new skills
Challenge students to complete a fun Bingo board and earn a pair of cool printable sunglasses or meet various practice goals to redeem customizable coupons. Download our template or create your own here.
Participate in IXL’s Study in the Sun summer contest
Tap into students’ competitive side with our summer usage contest! From June 1 to August 31, the three students in each grade band (PreK–4th, 5th–8th, and 9th–12th) who answer the most IXL questions correctly will take home an iPad mini. Parents and teachers can register students here—and be sure to read the full rules and FAQs here!
Bonus: Get pin-spired all summer long
