K5 Learning Online Reading & Math Program Review

k5

 

Reading and Mathematics are important fundamentals kids should master early in life.  As a teacher, I have witnessed how kids lose interest in studying due to difficulty in these areas.  On the other hand, kids who had better Reading and Mathematics foundation have a relatively easy academic life, and have a positive disposition in dealing with other academic subjects and student life in general.

 

It is every parents desire to give the best possible education there is.

 

Nowadays, may it be remedial classes or extra classes, kids take after-school-lessons.  For busy moms like me, online programs like K5 Learning Online Reading & Math Program is the best option. K5 online learning treats education very seriously.  Their program comes with complete assessment of your kids performance and a progress report for you.  It is designed in such a way that it promotes independent study and good study habits.

 

My daughter enjoyed the lessons and she looked forward to doing it after school.  She really got hooked up to it, especially that the programs are interactive.  The instructions are clear and simple.  The colors are vibrant.

As for me it is heaven sent.

1.  Convenience.  It is totally online.  I don’t have to download or install anything.  It saves me the worry of any malware/virus attack.  My daughter can study anywhere, anytime.  It spares me from traffic jam related stress, which I have to endure if  she studies in a learning center.

2.  Economical.  For the price of one, my daughter can have unlimited access to all 4 programs – K5 Reading, K5 Math, K5 Spelling and K5 Math Facts. I can enroll my second child at a much lower price.

3.  Reliable. With my busy schedule, sitting down with her during study time is not possible all the time.  K5 Learning’s assessment and parents report allow me to monitor her progress even with my busy schedule.

4.  Kid friendly.  The website does not have any external links, ads, or chat which could otherwise be dangerous.

Are you concerned that your child is a digital addict?

There is little doubt that we are now living in a digital age.  We seem to be swimming in a sea of technological gadgets and devices.  Even adults can find the sheer volume overwhelming – but what might it be doing to our children? Are you concerned that your child is – or may soon become – a digital addict?

Today the array of devices and gadgets available is considerable, ranging from television to computers to tablets, smartphones and MP3 players – to name just a few.

Concerns about some of these – such as the television – may have been around for decades. But others are more recent and the profusion of still more devices appears to grow all the time, with the development of new technologies limited only by the human imagination.

An independent study from Foresters (the international financial services and membership organisation ) revealed that the average family will only spend 4.4 hours in a weekend socialising together without technology, meaning a real lack of family quality time.

Some research suggests that children between the ages of 8 and 18 spend a staggering seven and a half hours a day feeding their digital addiction – whether this is by watching television, surfing the internet, playing video games or using their smartphones or tablets. Yet other research reveals that more than 20% of parents have no idea what their children may be viewing online.

As our children show signs of becoming digital omnivores, devouring technology on several platforms (often all at once!) the statistics make it difficult to understand how children are finding the time to do anything else – even the most basic of activities like going to school, eating and sleeping. And that is precisely the problem. Immersed in their increasingly digital world, children are finding it more and more difficult to relate to people in the real world and recognise the range of emotions others may feel.

The National Literacy Trust polled 35,000 children and discovered that only 25% of them did any reading outside the classroom, with 20% of them being embarrassed even to be caught reading something as old fashioned as a book.

Timeout

If these are issues you identify in your own child’s behaviour, perhaps it is the moment to take time out. The Tech Timeout initiative is a campaign aiming to restore a healthy dose of reality to family life – and the goals of the campaign couldn’t be simpler.

It can be summed up by the simple act of turning it off – whatever the digital device or gadget, it has a switch. The switch lets you turn it off. And with the device turned off you might re-establish your bonds with your children (and your partner too), rekindling the art of conversation and actually involving yourselves more closely in each other’s real lives.

What may come as a mixture of surprise and relief is the fact that the Tech Timeout challenge encourages a relatively minor step in the right direction – spending just an hour a day for a week together as a family, with the electronic digital devices safely switched off.

Take the challenge

If you are worried that your child may be becoming a digital addict, if you yourself are headed that way, or if the distance is growing between you and your partner, you might want to pick up the challenge and take your own timeout.

Kids Academy Mobile Apps Review

Playing games is every child’s world.  They live, interact, and learn in this world.  The more engaging and fun the game is, the better.  During these formative years of 2 to 5 years old, kids are like sponges.  They assimilate information fast. But these information could be put to waste if it is not retained.  Kids have higher probability of retaining information for a longer period of time, if the experience is fun and memorable.  So the key here is making every learning opportunities FUN and ENGAGING.

Nowadays, we should use technology to our advantage.  Two-year old kids already know their way around an ipad, a laptop, and android phones.  Sometimes,they are even better than adults.  Since they are so hooked up to these, why not use these to help them learn numbers and alphabets.

Kids Academy Mobile Apps is totally fun and engaging.  Every game is design to make FUN EDUCATIONAL.

First stop, a note to the parents will pop up first thing when you open this application.  It encourages parents and guardians to guide the kids during their first usage.

The games promote the development of fine motor skills for toddlers. They will be asked to trace the letters and follow instructions and the rules of the game.  The entire time, your kid’s auditory ability will be harnessed as they need to listen to instructions to complete the task. But the instructions are clear, simple, and easy to understand.

I find it helpful that each task is repeated twice, as this will reinforce what they did the first time.

They are ask to say the name of the letter, and trace it twice  – first with a guide and the second to trace it by themselves.  The letters are bold, allowing good vision and tracing.  The letters and background are colorful and bright, but not too busy with so many colors.  It is good that the background is white against a colorful letter as this will bring a kid’s attention on the letter and not on other things on the screen.

Other than number and letter tracing, Kids Academy Mobile Application also has phonics reading, and arithmetic operations.  I highly recommend this to parents who are looking for educational apps for their kids.  As a teacher myself, I also recommend this to preschool teachers.  This is also a must for nurseries and preschools as this will be a good teaching tool.
