K5 Learning program Review (2)


     I have had the opportunity to use the K5 learning program for about 14 days under the Free 14 day trial, and I would love to share with you my thoughts on this program.

My Thoughts

     After using the program for 14 days, my daughter has thoroughly enjoyed it and learned at the same time.  Everyday it is can I take the test now, or When can I get back and do some of he math games?  Nothing makes your heart any happier than to know that your child is not only wanting to play a game but she wants to play a game that she is learning something from. Hailey is in the 3 grade, and suffers from ADHD and ODD.  Both of which prohibits her from learning what she needs to be learning 100% of the time.  K5 makes learning fun and the kids love it!

     Since we have started using this program, Hailey has wanted to start reading more books, and when she plays school she takes what she has learned from the K5 learning program and teaches to her baby sister (Riley, 4 years old) and imaginary students.  Because our 14 day free trial was over the holiday (Christmas) I am not sure how well it helped her in school, however I can tell you that I have been watching her and she has improved by at least 45%.

     If you have a child that is having problems with Math or Reading in school, I highly recommend this program.  You can give it a try for 14 days under the Free Trial.  I promise you will see a difference in your child's attitude toward school and learning.  This is also a great program if you home school.  It is fun and educational all at the same time.

     Once you sign up for the free trial, you will be able to do an online reading assessment and an online math assessment on your child.  This will give a few random tests to see at which level your child is and what they need the most work on.  Maybe your little suffers from Math but excels in Reading.  You can use this program to focus on what they the need the most.  This was one of the best options offered to me in this program.  You can also follow your child's progress in this program, kind of like a Report card, so you can see how well they are doing or what they are needing help in.

     No one wants to see their child struggle in school and with this program you help them understand the processes and have major accomplishments.

Good Luck to you and your child... If you decide to try this out, leave us a comment and let us know what you thought of the program.
