Supplementing Our Homeschool with K5 Learning {Review}

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure Policy for more information. I don’t know about you, but I think extra practice in math and reading is always a good thing. We have been using the online program from K5 Learning to not only practice math and reading but spelling as well! They’ve […]

Times Table the Fun Way {Times Alive Review}

My kids are very different learners, but if there is anything they agreed on last year it was that they don’t like multiplication. Needless to say, when I was presented with the opportunity to share a Times Alive review, I was definitely excited! Times Alive offers online lessons with animated songs and stories to learn […]

LearnBop Online Math Review

We’re currently just over halfway through our school year (we start in January), and we’ve had a touch and go year with Math. It seems some concepts the kids have really caught on quickly while others have been more challenging. Recently our older two children (ages 8 and 10) have been getting math help through […]

Making Learning Fun Through Games {Sunya Publishing Review}

I am a big fan of educational games. I love when the kids are having fun while learning important information. It’s even better when we can all play together as a family. We have been playing the educational math game Sunya – The Magic and Wonder of Math and Science Adding & Subtracting. Sunya Publishing […]

Teaching Finances in our Homeschool

Learning about finances is an important life skill for children to learn. We definitely emphasize life skills in our homeschool, and finances aren’t only an important life skill but also teach Math skills as well! There are so many different ways to help teach kids finances, but when I learned of a program that would […]

A+ Interactive Math Review

At this point in the year, we’re about halfway through our homeschool year (we homeschool by calendar year). It’s always nice to know how the kids are doing and if they’re on target for the year. I try not to stress this too much because I believe kids should learn at their own pace, but […]

Online Math that Motivates {GPALOVEMATH Review}

Our kids are motivated by rewards. Each child is motivated by different rewards, though, and although they respond well to general rewards like stars, stickers, surprises, etc. the idea of choosing rewards that would be personal and specific to them really got me excited! GPA LEARN offers a great rewards based system to motivate children! […]

Math Without Pencil or Paper!

For the most part, our children enjoy Math. I bet you don’t hear that often! What they don’t enjoy, though, is writing. So instead of groans about the Math problems, I get the groans about writing the Math problems. I even get groans about online Math sometimes as well because they “are bored.” So how […]

Math and Language Arts – IXL Review

We had a chance to review IXL. IXL offers Math curriculum for Preschool through 12th Grade as well as Language Arts for grades 2nd through 8th. We had the opportunity to review both the IXL Math and the IXL Language Arts. IXL offers skills that are available for state standards, which I have found really helpful […]

UberSmart Math Facts Review

We had the chance to review UberSmart Math Facts from UberSmart Software. It’s a software for Windows with Math facts geared for grades K-6 though it can be used for any age. It uses primarily flash cards and timed tests. We have been using UberSmart Math Facts as additional Math practice with our older two […]

Mathletics Review

We had a chance to review Mathletics from 3P Learning. It is an online math program for grades K-12 that is designed to encourage students and reward results. It does have an app available as well. We have been using Mathletics with our older children (ages 6 and 8) that are both at the 2nd […]
