Zach has fallen behind in math at school. Honestly it is the timed tests that do him in. I detest timed tests! I think it is a crummy way to teach something while you are still learning it. But thats what it is and we are trying to make the best of it. I took him to Mathnasium today to see about after school tutoring. It would be good, I think, except that it costs a fortune. I try working with him myself but he gets frustrated with me. We don't work great together on math, its what we tried last year and we both walked away frustrated.

So I came home and started looking for something else for him. I found a pretty great looking website called K5 Learning. We are going to do the free trial and see how it goes. I think it will be great for him though. It evaluates them and then lets them work at their own pace. I think that is fantastic.

I have high hopes! And I will let you know when he gets going in it!

K5 Learning has an online reading and math program for kindergarten to grade 5 students.  I've been given a 6 week free trial to test and write a review of their program.  If you are a blogger, you may want to check out their  open invitation to write an online learning review of their program. - See more at:
