IXL Math Homework this week!

Dear Parent,

I am pleased to tell you that we will be using a website called IXL in our classroom for a 30-day trial. IXL is a comprehensive math and language arts 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!

To get your child started on your home computer, please follow these easy steps:

  1. Go to the header Math and select IXL Math Practice
  2. Enter your child’s username and password in the upper right corner and click the button to sign in.
    Username: Your child’s first and last name (no spaces) and the numbers  288. 
  3. Password: Child’s first name, all lowercase letters
  4. Click on Math or Language Arts at the top of the page and navigate to your child’s grade level.
  5. Find a skill to practice by doing one of the following:
    • Select a specific skill to practice from the list of skills. You can place your mouse over any skill to see a sample question and click on the link to begin.
    • Go to the Awards section. Each grade level presents challenges for your child to conquer and virtual prizes to be uncovered. Place your mouse over any challenge to begin.

In addition to making math and language arts 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 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 and language arts fun for your child!
