K5 Learning is an online program for children that focuses on Math, Spelling, and Reading. My eight-year-old (just finished up 2nd grade) and five-year-old (K) both spent some time doing exercises on the website.
I was pleased to notice that this website is an actual learning website. There are many website that claim to be educational, but they are really just addictive little games geared to getting your kids online as much as possible. I can't stand these type of websites. K5 Learning is actually about learning. You can't go ahead to the next thing unless you solve the problems or do the work.
My boys both liked the website, but because we do not spend a lot of time on screens, this program isn't a good fit for us.
You might consider beginning a free trial with K5 Learning if:
- Your child already spends time online playing "learning" games, but they aren't really educational.
- Your child could use a little extra help in Math, Reading, or Spelling.
- Your child is in school or homeschooled in grade K-5.
A great thing about this website is it doesn't just go by grade level. Each child does an online assessment that will place your child in the correct levels for each category. I love this! I don't want my children to waste their time online and I do want them to be challenged, so the assessment is great!
Definitely head over to K5 Learning to see whether this useful website is a good tool for your family.
