Education has always been extremely important to me. When I was a child I used to always say I wanted to be a teacher when I grew up. Well, when I finally “grew up” I changed my mind and decided on the computer field instead. Perhaps some day I’ll be a college professor and finally have the opportunity to fulfill my dreams of teaching. For now, I’ll settle as being my children’s first teacher.
I knew even before I had children that I didn’t want their learning to be left entirely up to the school system. I make it a point to supplement whatever they are learning in school at home with my own teachings by making it fun. One way I supplement education at home is by using an awesome interactive online math and story-based curriculum called Revolution Math. Have you heard of it before? If you follow me on Instagram, you may have heard me talk about it in my stories. Try It Out for 30 Days for JUST $1 (No strings attached – I promise!)
Math was always my favorite subject in school. I want my kids to like math or at least do well in it even if they don’t love it as much as I do. Did you know research suggests that early math skills are a better predictor of academic success than early reading skills?
What Is Revolution Math?
Revolution Math is an innovative program designed to help 2nd-5th graders develop their math skills and an overall love of learning. The live, online interface integrates an interactive learning experience with a story-based curriculum and Common Core aligned math games. Students enjoy a small class size of only 4 students, allowing them to build confidence under the instruction of a dedicated teacher. Check out their brief introductory online videos for more information.
My daughter has been using Revolution Math (we pay for this program with our own money) for the past two months. I can honestly say she is truly enjoying it and most importantly she’s learning advanced math skills for her grade. While the program is recommended for kids in grades 2-5, they also accept first grade students like my daughter.
Initially, some of the concepts were a bit difficult for her to grasp (as with learning anything new), but I’ve seen lots of improvement over the past two months. She is now able to do one, two, three and four digit addition and subtraction problems a lot easier using the concepts learned through the program without any worry or anxiety like she initially had.
Here are a few of the things my daughter has learned so far:
- Place value charting to decompose addends for 2-digit + 2-digit addition and 3-digit + 2-digit addition
- Different ways to represent three-digit numbers
- Finding patterns
- “Bundling”, “exchanging” or “carrying” from a lower place value to a higher one
I’ve loved witnessing the progress and confidence I’ve seen in my daughter over the past two months. It’s also been great to see her build a relationship with her online teacher (the teacher remains the same each week) and on occasion participate in class with other students.
Other added benefits are parents receive a weekly update on the math tutoring session which includes cool apps and strategies you can use at home to reinforce learning. Also, registered subscribers can access additional drills for practice playing the Revolution math game. Finally, kids earn gems each lesson that can be traded in for kid-friendly prizes from the Revolution Math Rewards store. Who doesn’t love an incentive? I know I sure do! My daughter is currently saving up her gems for a fidget spinner.
Are you excited yet? Do you want to help your children fall in LOVE with math (and reading too!)?
