Adapted Mind

One of the many tools we use in our homeschool is a great math tool called Adapted Mind. This is a great took to help kids learn math skills, and get them to stick in a fun way.

We were looking at some math games, for Jackasaurus, back at the beginning of the year. He loves doing math, and had asked if there were any game he could play after his school work was done. After a long search, and checking things out, we settled on the Adapted Mind program.

The great thing about this program is that it not only helps them retain what they are learning, but if they are having a problem with a certain area it has a "explain" button and the kids can watch a video on how to do the problem. Jackasaurus was doing a division word problem, and got confused on what they were talking about. The "explain" button cleared it up fast, and he understood it!

There is a fee to this program, but it's minimal- $10.00 per month, but your first month is totally free to use. You can put up to 5 kids on your one account, so that you get the most out of your money. We ended up putting on some friends' kids, who also homeschool, on our account so that they could get some use out of it!

Also anytime the kids do the math games, you get a progress report in your email, so you know where they are having trouble, or where they excelling. It's really a great program, so I would encourage you to give it a try. You can try it free for one month, so you have the option to not keep it if it doesn't work for your children. Our children love it, so in our minds that cost is nothing.

Until Next Time,
