IXL Learning Review

Vendor: IXL Learning
Product: IXL Full Annual Membership
Price: $159 for one child for the core subjects
Age: Pre-K through 12th

About: IXL Learning is an online comprehensive K-12 learning. IXL full annual membership is $159 for one child.  This includes the core subjects of; Math, Language, Science, and Social Studies. When you get access you get access to all the grade levels as well as subjects.  This is really great for those that have kids that may be in different levels for each subject that are in.  I used this for my 5 year old.  He is just getting into school and learning.  He is also ADHD and Autistic.  This means he doesn't hold his attention well for many things. The best part is you can download this as an app on your iPhone/iPad or your Android for them to play. I also have a touch screen computer so it was very easy for him to navigate the lessons himself. 

So we used this about every other day for 15-30 minutes, depending on how well we could get him interested.  It is easy for a kiddo to navigate the work but does need help getting into each topic. For a little kid like him it reads out the questions and answers so they know which one they want to pick. I think it is much easier on a mobile device or touch screen for him. So glad they had the option of an app. Plus makes a great busy time while in the car. I looked over the older levels too and they are all self explanatory.  I just found these are to practice skills already known, there is no teaching of the skill.  You get "rewards" for doing well as you progress through each topic. I think this is great for public school or homeschool kids to get some extra practice in areas they are working on in their everyday lessons.  It is also a good starting program for the pre-k age kids to be able to learn letters, shapes and etc. The platform is colorful and inviting and the lessons are quick so you don't get burnt out easily.

Below is a video of him doing shapes. Excuse any background noise :) but this can give you an idea how one of the lessons work. Each lesson after builds up to being harder or more information so they keep progressing. I like how it reads him the question then he can push each answer to see what it says before he submits the one he thinks is correct. The lessons keep him interested and then he likes when they give him an award. He likes to keep track off how well he has done on each thing. The wards fill a box up with several and he wants to get the entire thing filled with his awards.  This helps keep him motivated to continue going.

Be sure to check them out on social media...
