New English language arts skills

Our latest release features 20 new skills for Grade 3, which expand our coverage of Reading Strategies and Writing Strategies. See some examples below, then check out the new skills on IXL!

Add descriptive details to sentences

In this skill, students practice making sentences more informative and evocative by adding descriptive details to match a fun picture.

Draw inferences from a text

With this skill, students draw inferences from short narrative scenes. This targeted practice will help students comprehend, make predictions about, and analyze longer literary works.


New math skills

In grade 3, we refined our coverage of the relationship between area and perimeter by breaking down an existing skill into two separate skills. For grades 1-5, we’ve strengthened our coverage of mean, median, mode, and range by splitting these concepts into separate skills. Visit IXL to try them out!
