Hot List Q & A
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
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.
