Review:

K-5 Learning is an academic website that teaches core skills in math, reading, and spelling. Unlike other websites that teach these skills through entertaining games, this website focuses on academic tasks. The concepts are well presented and the tasks are clearly defined. Some tasks are presented in the more formal worksheet or assessment format and others are presented in a "story" format. The lessons emphasize fluency, and its importance for elementary students to master. The site offers individualized assessments, which can be very helpful in helping a child learn and improve skills. Although most lessons are appropriately paced and delivered, some young testers, and adult supervisors, found some frustrations we hope will be fixed. As examples: some testers misspelled words due to difficulty understanding what was being said.

Although at $25/month or $199 per year for the first child, the price is a bit steep, it could prove a good value for homeschoolers interested in a pure academic curriculum or parents hoping to avoid the summer slide.
