I've blogged before about how I like to supplement what my boys learn at school with additional learning activities at home. We usually do workbooks and printables, but I was intrigued when K5 Learning contacted me to see if I'd like to do a review of their website. They provide an online reading and math program for grades kindergarten - 5th, which builds skills through independent study.
One helpful thing the site offers free is an assessment in reading and math. Once your child is assessed, lessons start at the appropriate grade level, and build from there, growing increasingly challenging as your child builds on skills. I had Pierce do both assessments. Pierce is in first grade, but he is in a second grade reading group at school. He is also at a second grade math level (he has passed the end of first grade math level test, so they give him extra work at school to keep him challenged, as I didn't want to move him up). It took Pierce about 30 minutes to take each assessment on the K5 Learning website. Once he finished, the results were immediately available when I logged in as the parent. The website placed him on a second grade math and a second grade reading level. So their results are consistent with the results I have received from Pierce's school. In addition, now Pierce can go to the website and continue to build on his current skill level from home. He's the type of kid who loves to learn, so he is excited to continue using this program.
