Every day for the past couple of years, my now-four year old has asked when she’s going to go to school. I work with her at home so that she will be prepared when she starts kindergarten and between her and my six year old’s learning struggle, any bonus learning tools help! Go Math! Academy has been the PERFECT aid for my girls!
Go Math! Academy™ is an online, at-home learning program based on Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s enormously successful GO Math!™ textbook curriculum, used by over 7 million kids worldwide. Go Math! Academy offers thousands of math practice problems, hundreds or help videos, and plenty of games and rewards to make learning fun!
The current grades available are K-6 but I think that Go Math! Academy a great tool for preschoolers too. As soon as I showed my four year old how to work the mouse, she easily grasped how to navigate the Go Math! Academy website. There is a button to click for the computer to read the math questions to your child and this is an aspect that I absolutely love. If they can learn on their own without too much mom interference, I feel like that could really benefit them and also me, because then they can work independently on their “assignments” while I get some cleaning, cooking, or other mom-tasks done!
My four year old is extremely excited about using Go Math! Academy to the point that she’s been telling strangers in the stores we shop at, “Mommy let’s me do my homework on her computer!” She’s been doing fantastically well learning her numbers, to count, compare values, add, and many other things so far. I know this even when I’m not in the room, because Go Math! Academy e-mails me her progress report, as well as displays it on our dashboard on the website.
My older daughter has been improving her math skills with the reinforcement of the Go Math! Academy program. She considers it more of a play time than work so she’s always hounding me for her turn to practice with Go Math! Academy! The way that each problem is done step-by-step is very beneficial for her, given her struggles with learning and how she has a hard time paying attention or memorizing after longer periods.
Go Math! Academy is an awesome program for the kids and it’s the best aid for learning at home. Since my four year old isn’t in preschool, we find that the program will be perfect to help us to prepare her for kindergarten. She has been 100% correct in her answers on her own so far, with nothing but minimal explanation of the meaning of “greater than” and “less than” from me. My husband said, “She’s doing really well on that website! Let’s keep the subscription, how much is it for a year? $79.99 isn’t bad at all!” There are so many topics for her to get through and if she happens to master kindergarten, we can just move on to first grade! So the bottom line is… we’re hooked!
Go Math! Academy is available with three different payment plans for up to five children on each account, and you can choose whichever plan works best for you:
· Monthly: $9.99/month
· 6-months: $49.99 ($8.33/month) – a 17% savings
· 1-year: $79.99 ($6.67/month) – a 33% savings
You can sign up at the Go Math! Academy website.
