I'm here to do a quick post about a fab website and the way that it builds community positivity. I learned about this website even before I became a teacher, and the school I was interning at was LOVING IT. So I checked into it, and now I love it, too!!
Ever heard of it?
Welp, it's F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C!!!
I think the number one thing I love about IXL is the way that they tend to reward the ENTIRE class. This progress report of sorts is absolutely amazing to me in terms of building a classroom community! The rewards they each received as a whole class not only made them want to do better as a whole, but it also made them each more "intrinsically motivated." If that makes sense.
Here's an example of one of the rewards we received.
I print these babies out and then hang them in our hallway for others to see. It shows not only that my kiddos are practicing math topics, but that they're also working as a team to gain these rewards!
I LOVE THE POSITIVITY!!!
