We recently had the opportunity to review K5 Learning.
K5 is a web based program which includes four reading and math programs:
K5 Reading: This program covers phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, sight words, and reading comprehension.
K5 Spelling: This is a customized spelling program (our personal favorite of the whole K5 online experience!) with over a 150,000 word database.
K5 Math: The math program covers all math concepts in depth (number operation, geometry, time and money, measurement, algebra and data analysis.
K5 Math Facts: This is an adaptive program that moves students forward after MASTERY of their addition, subtraction, multiplication and/or division facts. The visual for facts mastered is very helpful.
My children tried each one of the areas. Their favorite (by far) was the spelling. I could set the level I wanted each child to work at - and then they were given words to spell. After 50 correct words they earned a reward video.
I felt that the graphics and voices were all well done. My children did not feel "baby-ed" and were not bored while using K5.
We have reviewed similar programs in the past, but K5 has been my favorite.
You can sign up for a free 14 day trial of K5 learning. I appreciate the fact that K5 doesn't require any payment information from you for this trial.
With this free trial you receive a free reading and math assessment for each of your children - to me this is worth it... just to get a read on where you child falls. I know as homeschoolers we aren't concerned so much about "testing", but I like to get an idea of how my children is doing in core subject areas.
