Online learning supplements are becoming more common nowadays. One thing that many of them lack is the ability to be personalized. K5 learning really sets themselves apart here. It can be totally customized to your child in no time. There are over 3000 different prewritten lessons.
With K5 Learning your child can take 2 separate assessments. One is for reading and one is for math. When you are requesting their assessments you do need choose their current “grade level” in order to get the ones that would closest match them.
After the assessment the results are very easy to read. It shows you exactly where your child placed as well as the grade range. So it is very easy to see if your child is in their range.
Your child has their own log in separate from the parents. This is so you can set up personalized spelling lists, schedule or even exempt your child from certain lessons.
The lessons are fun and engaging even for my 5th grader. They didn’t feel too childish for her, and sometimes she said she felt funny pretending something. (example: you pretend you are on an underwater mission for the assessments) Other times she loved it.
You can easily see exactly where your child is at.
K5 includes 4 reading and math programs

My favorite things of K5:
The parent dashboard. The way you are able to customize everything and see exactly what your child has done and how well they knew the content. It is full of reports, you know right where your child is at any time.
There are also math worksheets to bring the learning offline.
Some things to remember:
K5 was created as a supplement curriculum, a type of afterschool help, not a complete curriculum. It is nice to keep skills fresh over the Summer or for the children of the mother that just had a baby. The kid that learns on the computer or even a child that needs to learn how to use the computer.
K5 does things by grade level, however you can have your child’s grade adjusted up or down.
It is full on instruction and not just review work.
There are no ads, no chat and no outside links.
It is 100% online, so you will need internet access.
