K-5 Learning, a TOS Crew Review

K5 Learning is an online enrichment program aimed at children working in the kindergarten-through-fifth-grade level in reading, spelling and mathematics. The subscription is priced at $25 a month for the first child or $199 a year with additional students priced at $15/month or $129/year.


K5 is personalized because the child begins with an assessment to put the child at the right starting point.

If you have a child with special needs, be sure to check out the page about K5 and special needs learners, here. That page states, "Some children, including children with Asperger’s syndrome and high functioning autism, learn better without the distractions of personal contact." While the statement is true, we were advised by our autism consultant that the laptop and other electronics were getting in the way of relationships to the point of an addiction and during this review period began a period of electronic detox with her help.

K5 Learning is another review item that arrived during the period where the hard drive crashed on our new laptop and we were left waiting for the repair. When the laptop was returned, we were keeping the homeschooler off of the computer during a period of detox. I regret the timing of the hard drive crash and detox time. This is an informational review. We were not able to use the product during the review time period.

It looks like a lot of fun. Be sure to check out the introductory video and the free 2-week trial offer, here.

Geometry, something I don't associate much w/ K-through-5 learning, is included in your subscription:

We need to work more on addition and subtraction facts at my house. They never seem to stick like multiplication did. K5 has activities for those important math facts, too.


I am tickled to see that your free trial is available to you without your being required to supply credit card information. Please give K-5 Learning a try. It might be right for your situation. When we get through our detox and are using online learning options again sometime down the road, I plan to do just that, now that our hard drive is repaired and working the way it is supposed to.

We were given a brief trial of K5 Learning for review purposes. Due to equipment issues and autism intervention, we were not able to use this product during the review time. This is an informational review.
