Help me give my students individual IXL accounts to practice their math skills at school and at home.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are a diverse mix of energetic, intelligent, and creative kids who need resources to truly excel! They attend an inner-city school that strives to do what's best for its kids, but often doesn't have the budget for the extra supplies and technology that can make a difference. Many of them have had traumatic backgrounds, have learned English as a second language, or have families that struggle to put food on the table. Despite these challenges, they thrive when given the right opportunities and my intention is to make those opportunities happen.
Do you remember filling out math worksheets, only to find out you had done the whole page wrong? Was there ever a time that you needed help with a tricky concept, and nobody could help you? Wasn't it awful?
IXL is a math program that provides instantaneous feedback and instruction to help a student learn important math skills at their own pace!
It aligns with the new Common Core standards. The program keeps track of each child's strengths and weaknesses and allows me as a teacher to print out graphs that show daily, weekly, and monthly reports and goals. Most importantly it is engaging! The kids love the programs and they can be done at their level. The struggling kids get re-enforcement and the gifted students get challenged! It is the only program I've seen that is great for ALL of my students.
Obtaining individual access to IXL will help my students push towards their math and ELA goals in an engaging, effective manner. Though I can't be everywhere at once, IXL gives the immediate feedback and coaching that they need to work independently and continue to learn.
