Avoid summer learning loss with K5 LearningK5 Learning Free Trial Banner

Kids deserve a break from the classroom, but not from learning. Countless research shows that students who stop all studying during the summer suffer a significant loss in knowledge and academic skills.

We encourage parents to establish a regular summer study routine. 30 minutes a day will avoid learning loss and place your kids well ahead of the curve in September. Equally important, it reinforces to your children the importance of learning – it’s not something done just at school.

An award-winning summer learning program

Thousands of students have had success with K5 and its 3,000 reading and math activities. Our award winning lessons are research based and aligned with national education standards.  Our animated, highly interactive lessons build reading, math and study skills.  The program is structured to encourage independent study and to minimize time requirements for parents. 

Free trial

We offer a 14-day free trial (no obligations, no credit card) giving full access to our complete program As part of the free trial, you will receive free online assessments of your child’s math and reading skills.

We start with free assessments

We recommend that students complete our free online reading and math assessments.  Each child is then placed in the lessons according to their skills, not their grade levels.  A child may be placed at an early grade 3 level in phonics and a mid-grade 1 level in geometry, or vice versa.

Kids don’t watch, they interactK5 Awards

The lessons are highly interactive, continually prompting the student to respond. This is critical in maintaining children’s focus and generating positive learning outcomes.

A summer learning program with full instruction, not just quizzes

A summer learning program should allow kids to learn new materials, not just practice what they have learned elsewhere. All of our lessons start with a full interactive tutorial followed by practice sessions and finally a quiz.

Feedback is immediate

K5 Learning lets your child know right away when they get something right or wrong. Kids remember better and are more motivated when they receive immediate feedback.

Bite-sized lessons provide flexibility

Lessons are broken into 5-10 minute segments so that study sessions can be short and flexible. Kids learn better with short but frequent study sessions

Parents get reports

Parents can access comprehensive reports on their child’s progress at any time.
