I home educate my children and utilize educational online programs to supplement our curriculum. KinderIQ is an excellent online program to help young children learn core reading and math skills. This award winning kindergarten learning program utilizes a research based testing format designed specifically for kindergartners and preschoolers. I appreciate getting immediate feedback on each test my son has completed. I can then focus my attention on the specific recommendations given for his continued improvement in those core skills.
How does it work? The student can test what they know by completing topics in Mathematics, English Language Arts and Beyond the Standards (patterns, money concepts, estimating, time, skip counting). In addition, the student can then learn what they don’t already know by practicing with worksheets, printable activities and online learning games. My son, age 6 needed extra practice estimating objects so there were numerous worksheets and activities that he completed to help him with this task. It also helped me target areas to focus on during our daily curriculum. Improvements were noted by the program during his subsequent tests giving me positive feedback via the Learning Scorecard (a helpful pie chart) and shows that he is definitely learning important skills with KinderIQ.
There are several features that make KinderIQ an exceptional learning program in my opinion including the fact that the tests are adaptive and adjust to the child’s skill level. While challenging, my son never becomes frustrated that the tests are too difficult. Furthermore, the questions are fun and engaging and kept Adam’s attention. In fact, he asks to “play” KinderIQ every day.
Here is the best part….KinderIQ is free for online skills questions (one test per day) and a premium membership is very affordable at only $4.95 per month, including unlimited access to the entire online program. I highly recommend the premium membership because we use KinderIQ every day and I really utilize the printable worksheets, unlockable coloring pages, games and activities and the real-time performance tracking. KinderIQ is so confident that you will be as pleased as I am with the program that they are offering a 100% satisfaction guarantee and you can cancel your membership at any time (though I doubt that you will want to).
Summer break is the perfect time to begin an online educational program so that young children do not lose what they have learned from the school year. KinderIQ is effective and affordable. You can sign up for a KinderIQ account including a free or premium account by visiting the website and selecting the program that works best for your child.
