Any student that completes all assigned skills for the previous week at 100% accuracy is part of the Hundreds Club.
I post a small postcard for each student, often with a little token (pencil or eraser or doodad) attached. Students are assigned one to two 20-minute blocks for IXL practice weekly in class on a set schedule.
My class likes to do "IXL Sprints." They must start on a skill they haven't started working on yet and work throughout the time limit (usually about 10–20 minutes). This can be either the whole class cheering for them or a small piece of candy.
The students really enjoy the sprints because many of them are competitive and enjoy immediate rewards.

The students love to come in and look for their recognition.I have the ability to drop the grade level so that it isn't always an uphill battle.I also use IXL to push/challenge my higher-level math students.Read the inspiring stories from these remarkable educators below. I use IXL for whole group, small group, and homework!My class likes to do "IXL Sprints." They must start on a skill they haven't started working on yet and work throughout the time limit (usually about 10–20 minutes). When in whole group, students will usually have individual whiteboards that they write the answer on. This is helpful as a formative assessment so that I know which students need more small group instruction.I don't assign IXL for homework often as some students do not have Internet.However, I use the STAR reports to determine what skills each student can work on.I still hate using the word homework, but the progress features with this program really make it engaging.I'm glad they are super into this now, but hope the fad doesn't ware off.Occasionally we use some whole-class computer-lab time to work on assigned skills.I encourage students to do IXL for homework as well. Each Monday I assign on average four skills to complete by Sunday.
