K5 Learning Review

Attention Mom's of children in grades K-5, this post is for you!!

A few months back, Simply Mommies was asked to try and review an online learning program called  K5 Learning. I had my 3rd grade daughter and her 1st grader friend participate in the program. 

K5 Learning is an online reading and math program for kids in kindergarten through grade 5. It can be used as a supplemental study and as a reinforcement for what your child is studying in school. It helps to build students reading and math skills. 

Pros of the program:
  • User friendly
  • Automatic lesson plan selection 
  • Ability to add your own spelling words
  • Students are put at their appropriate levels based on the completion of the student assessment at the start of the program
  • No downloading necessary
  • No external links or advertisements making it safe for children as young as 4 years old
  • Ability for  your child to work at his/her own pace
Cons of the program:

  • The only issue I had with the program is that the old spelling words would continuously show up with the new weeks words. It would be a great addition to the program if the spelling words were organized by week. This way, students would not have to work the previous weeks spelling words.
 I did contact customer service regarding this and it was explained to me that if the student had spelled all the previous weeks words correctly then they shouldn't come up again. I experimented by going through all the words with my daughter spelling them correctly. Even after doing this, they would occasionally show up with a new weeks word list.

Overall, I really liked the program and both children found it easy to use.

The child in grade 1 often struggles to pay attention in her classroom. but did very well using the program. Her mother was pleased with K5 Learning program and appreciated that it was easy to navigate. Her child enjoyed being able to do a lot of the lessons independently.

My daughter, the third grader, loved using K5 for her spelling words every week. It gave her a great way to study for the upcoming test at school. She also enjoyed the math and reading portions of the program.  I felt comfortable enough with k5 to know that this was a safe site for her to navigate without adult supervision. It is extremely child friendly and the lessons always held her attention.

I highly recommend trying  K5learning
