K5 Learning Review


I’ve kept Savannah home from preschool since February, but I still wanted her to learn while she was home. We did “activities” for the first few months after being home.  I bought books and crafts and looked into some online lessons. One online program that stood out was K5 Learning.

K5 Learning offers sample lessons that you can try immediately. Savannah really enjoyed the penguins! You can also sign up for a 14 day free trial membership. I signed Savannah up for the 6 week blogger review program. She really enjoyed doing the lessons.

What’s unique about K5 Learning is they assess your child and give him or her activities based on their skills not their age. If you feel your child is having difficulty, you just email them and they will correct it. There is nothing to download or install, it’s all online. There are no ads or external links. The children can work independently and then mom or dad will get a progress report. You each have separate logins.

I sat with Savannah while she did her lessons. She’s only 4. I really liked the program and wished I could sign her up, but it’s not something I can do at the moment. I liked how the reading lessons went. The program would read out loud a page and ask questions. The child could easily have the page re-read. After 2 chances the correct answer is given. The math was fun too! They made pizzas and counted the different toppings. The Hippo Hotel was fun too! It costs $25 a month for the unlimited access.

If you are looking to boost your child’s summer learning or looking for something in the fall at least check out K5’s online reading and math program. I may re-consider once Savannah start’s pre-kindergarten in the fall. She will be home 2 days a week and we may need the extra learning.

Check out K5’s blog and they are on Facebook and Twitter too!

I'm a mother of 2 who likes to get involved in too much! Besides writing here I started a non-profit, I'm on the PTO board, very active in my community and volunteer in the school. I enjoy music, reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. We just adopted our 3rd cat and love them all!
