K5 Learning Program (Upcoming Review)

Math and reading can be one of two things
fun and eventful or terrifying. 
For my oldest Carter math is not fun at all. 
She struggles like a lot of other kids. 
So when I was asked about doing a review of the
K5 Learning program for math and reading
I knew it would be something that could help implement
all the other extras Carter gets.

Here is a little bit of background information on the company.

 K5 Learning ( is an online reading and math program for kids from kindergarten through grade 5. Our intent is to help kids build reading, math and study skills through independent study. K5 is designed for home use and can be used for after-school, weekend and summertime supplemental study or in conjunction with a homeschooling program.
How it Works
Kids complete an online assessment of 8 key reading and math skills, and then work independently at their own pace through over 3,000 online lessons and activities. The lessons are animated, interactive and simple enough that a 4-5 year old can use them independently. We automatically choose lessons for students (based on their assessment and past lessons), track student progress and provide reports for parents.
Benefits for Kids
K5 helps kids learn essential reading and math skills, develop good study habits, and fulfill their academic potential.
Benefits for Parents
K5 makes life easier for parents by allowing for effective, independent study by kids. Simplified interfaces, automatic lesson selection, student tracking and reporting all contribute to minimize the amount of daily supervision required.
Who we are
K5 Learning was founded by parents who wanted better learning tools available to their kids for home use. In 2010, we licensed the very best reading and math software, used by thousands of students in hundreds of schools, from leading U.S. education companies. K5 Learning is formed from the combination of this award winning software.

The cost of this incredible program is quite affordable too I thought.

K5 is available on a subscription basis for $25/month or $199/year with substantial discounts for siblings. Each subscription includes a free math and reading assessment and unlimited use of each of K5’s four programs, K5 Reading, K5 Math, K5 Spelling and K5 Math Facts. A 14 day free trial is available.

I will be reviewing the site for 6 weeks with Carter.
Look back soon for my thoughts on going through the program. 

*I am being provided a 6 week trial of the K5 Learning program. I am not being paid.
