I am pleased to tell you that we will be using a website called IXL in our classroom this year. IXL is a comprehensive math review site with an unlimited number of practice questions in hundreds of skills—all of which are aligned to state standards. One of the best things about IXL is that your child can access it from home, so you have a chance to see your child's progress!
In addition to making math practice exciting, IXL is designed to help your child learn at his or her own pace. The website is adaptive and will adjust to your child's demonstrated ability level. The site also saves all of your child's results, so you can monitor your child's progress anytime by clicking on the Reports at the top of the page.
I hope you'll encourage your son or daughter to use IXL daily. Here's to a year of working together to make math fun for your child!
There is a link to IXL under favorite sites on the right side of this screen and your child's user name and password will be taped to their Homework Folder. Enjoy!
