I purchased the Math software for 5-6 year olds made by School Zone Interactive Logiciel On Track Software for our trip to Mexico. The Twins were only 5 at the time and would be going to a bilingual (spanish and english) school in Hermosillo, MX but I wanted to ensure that they kept up with their math skills at home too.
The software was super easy to install, just load the CD and click on the program to download. It comes with a bilingual (english and french) workbook that accompanies each lesson. It is also compatible with Windows and Mac operating systems.
Each lesson has easy to follow instructions that are read to the child. My children would even click the repeat button to hear the instructions again if the missed it the first time. Navigating and viewing results is just as easy, click on the green arrow to move to the next activity and to see the number of correct answers.
As with any tipical school day, there should be recess! This Math software includes fun games to play in between lessons at 'recess' time. My son, who loves video games, looked forward to completing the lessons and getting to play the lesson-focused 'recess' games.
Well, what did my kids learn? They learned about numbers, place value, addition and subtraction.The software also prints out personalized progress reports and even a certificate once they've completed all lessons. They could also print out personalized review sheets to complete on their own.
This software was excellent for introducing math to my twins in a fun way. When learning is fun, children will love to learn!
