Hot List Q & A
Interactive Programs

March 2014

Question:
   Hello Everyone,

   I'm trying to establish several interactive activities in which my ELL students could log in, complete lessons, and that allows me to monitor and keep track of students progress. Something similar to IXL. Any suggestions or recommendations are appreciated. Thank you:

    Last year I used an online program called Lexia. It was designed for elementary students, including kindergarten. The focus was primarily phonics and vocabulary, with more reading as the student advanced in age/level. The teacher is emailed any time the student falls below average, included in the email is an intervention activity! I loved it and so did they! However, I think it's pricy.

   Hi,
   Take a look at Imagine Learning. I have used it for a few years and I think you will like it. I have used it in grades K-8, but I believe the reading skills go to grade level 6. My students love it. I have used Help Math in the past. The program teaches math skills in English and Spanish, has great visuals and covers skills from primary to advanced when working with students K-8. I think it is a great program, but I do feel students benefit when a teacher is assisting to also give explanations to lessons and create additional practice material.
   Hope that helps.
