Setting this program up is relatively simple. The parent creates her own account, plus accounts for each of her children who will be using the program. Each will have separate passwords. The parent may initially set up her children into grade levels, but the computer software will reassess and make adjustments as necessary. This is what the opening screen looks like.

K5 Learning has received several educational awards.
See a screenshot of 5th grade K5 Math below. Since I had my 1st grader and preschooler using this program, we did not experience this portion of the program.
My preschooler especially enjoyed the short lessons and the train animation used for his lesson. It seemed slightly above his ability level at the tender age of 4, though.
Parent reports are also available. Below you can see an example of the feedback offered parents from the K5 Math Facts section. This seems to be a very helpful feature of the program.
14 day free trial is offered. If you find it useful for your children, a subscription is available for $25 monthly ($15 monthly for additional children).
An annual subscription costs $199 ($129 for additional children).
Any questions? K5 Learning's FAQ page is a great place to start if you're interested in this program. Although this is not something we were excited enough about to continue, this could be a great program for your child or children, and the 14 day free trial should help you determine whether it will be a "fit" for your own family.
