Recent Review: How to Beat the Math Monster
From her review:
Do you have a math monster at your house? You know the one that steals the joy from your home every time math is mentioned. Are you feeling overwhelmed trying to pick a math curriculum? Switching to something different every year?
“Something else that we found – or I should say it found us – is a fun program we’ve been using as a supplement called Smartick. It has been a game changer for us. All 3 of my big kids use it and love it. Especially the entertaining games! They breeze through the math as quickly as they can in order to play the super fun games.
It works great for pre-readers too! Which is an advantage over a few other programs we’ve tried. It easily reads the problem to the child and uses pictures to help them differentiate items. Even my 4-year-old enjoys the program and begs to be allowed to “play math”.
One other reason I’m truly grateful for this program is that it discovered a few holes in my children’s math. Areas I was not aware of, but I didn’t have to worry, because they quickly and easily taught themselves through the Smartick program and both the kids and I were saved some slight embarrassment.
Avoid the Summer Slump with Smartick!
“I plan to use Smartick as a fun summer supplement to keep my kids engaged during the summer and avoid the usual fall slump back into lots of math review. You might enjoy trying it too!” Thank you for your honest review, Charity!
This is something that parents need to be aware of! If parents do not think ahead of ways to avoid the classic “summer slump” it could set their child back for the upcoming year. Smartick is a great resource for the summer because it is designed in 15-minute sessions that allows for maximum concentration & not too much of a time commitment to add into your packed daily summer schedule!
