TOS Review ~

We have recently had the opportunity to review in our home. As the name implies it is geared for grades Kindergarten through 5th. However, all 3 of my children were able to use and benefit from it. I had both Unicorn and Ladybug take the placement tests. Unicorn tested out of most of the reading lessons (everything except the comprehension which she tested into late 5th grade) and tested all over the board for math (I was not surprised as this is her weakness). Ladybug tested into the mid- to high first grade level in both math and reading. Monkey just started at the beginning as he is only 3 years 10 months old.

Sample Math Lesson Level 5
K5 Learning has a set curriculum however, you are able to assign lessons to your child. They also have math fact and spelling practice (you can use your own spelling words too).
Sample Math Facts Mastery
The Assessment reports are fairly easy to read and display the information in a couple ways (see below). I was not too surprised by my girls' results. Although I did expect Unicorn to do better in the comprehension portion. The assessments are used to determine your child's placement and to develop a customized program.

Sample Assessment Results
~Student's assessed and program created based on results

~Easy for children to navigate and use independently
~Parent reports
~100% online (no downloads) :)
~14-day FREE Trial
~discount for multiple children
~lessons are 5-10 minutes long

~It did take a while for content to get challenging after the initial assessment
~Even with the discount program can get pricy if used as a supplemental curriculum

~$25/mo. 1st child ($15/mo. ea. additional child)
~$199/yr. 1st child ($129/yr. ea. additional child)

I like that K5 Learning is focused on the content not on how "fancy" they can make their site. I like that the graphics are simple and that the questions are read aloud for young readers. All my children enjoyed K5. Monkey gets mad when we don't "do math" every day.
