Summer Learning for Incoming 6th Grade

0

6th graders DO NOT have access to IXL this summer and have been instructed to read for enjoyment! You are required to read grade level novels of your choice. Just be sure to write down the names and authors of your FOUR books.

IXL Summer Learning

STEM will be using IXL.com for Summer learning.  IXL is an adaptive learning program offering unlimited practice problems in thousands of skills—all of which are aligned to the Common Core.

You can access it from anywhere you have internet on a phone or computer, or download the app. 

Weekly IXL skills (2 math and 2 language arts) will be posted on the STEM blog each Monday beginning on June 24th, 2019 and archived on the “Summer Learning 2019” blog page.    

Students will receive points for completing summer work and it will be included in the first marking period grade.

I will post videos along with some of the complex IXL to remind you how to do them.

Here are some things to consider when using IXL:

  • IXL is designed to use at your own pace.  Take your time!
  • When you reach your frustration level, STOP using IXL. Come back later.
  • IXL will save your score and you can continue where you left off at any time.
  • IXLs should not be completed in one session. Stop every so often and extend your learning over a short period of time, not just in one sitting. You will retain the information better!
  • Only work when you can focus without distraction. Otherwise you will lose points when you get them wrong!
  • If you get one wrong you should read the feedback it gives you to correct the mistake.
  • If you do not know how to do an IXL, take a guess and then read the feedback or utilize the new example feature at the top of the page.
  • The program is adaptive and will adjust based on your understanding of the material.  

Here are some summer learning documents published by IXL to explain how to monitor your student learner and use their analytics features.
