I Know It Interactive Math Lessons K - 5 grade

Math is one of the subjects that has to be done daily, especially in the early years. It requires a lot of practice of basic math facts to acquire the solid foundation needed for upper level math down the road. Some of our weeks get extremely busy when we are on the go more than we are home. For those types of days I am especially glad to be able to take our math with us using a program called I Know It, the new program from the makers behind We have been using the I Know It program to add supplementary online math lessons to our schedule when we cannot get to our regular math program.

I Know It is a comprehensive, interactive, online math practice site for K-5th graders. The program allows the student to work at their own level to gain mastery in skills that they may need to shore up. Students are free to work at their own pace and there are helpful hints that are just a click away if needed.

We received a home/family membership that is good for one parent and four children for a years term. Setting up my parent account was easy. I choose the main level for my children to work at, however, they are free to jump around to work in other levels as well. This worked especially well with my 3rd grader, McKenzie.

Assigning specific lessons or topics to complete is really simple in this program. Similarly, so is designating how much time you want your student to dedicate to practicing. The student is also free to choose topics they want to study if you are comfortable letting an older student have more control over their learning.

Instant feedback is given once the student submits the answer. If the problem is wrong, information about how to fix it is given to help the student be successful. When the answer is correct the student will see a dancing little robot guy in the bottom corner doing a happy dance. My student enjoyed seeing this dancing robot.

I mainly used this program with McKenzie, my 3rd grader. We are still in the process of figuring out how to get everything done during the day for school after she comes home from gymnastics training. Some days, when we just don’t get to our regularly scheduled math lessons I have no issue in assigning her 20 minutes of time on I Know It to work on math topics. Normally, McKenzie has been working with the program 2-3 days a week. More specifically on Monday and Wednesdays as those are our two busiest days of the week as a family.

Overall, McKenzie and I have enjoyed her usage of this program. I should mention that the lessons are aligned with the Common Core but we just ignore that and focus on what we need to get out of the program. The lessons are short and too the point without too much fluff. I appreciate that. She enjoys it because the graphics make the program fun without being too babyish. She excels in math, so having her do these lessons was not a chore for her. We will continue using the I Know It program as we finish up this school year because I know she is getting quality math instruction on the days that we can’t hit the books in her regular math curriculum. In the next few weeks, I plan to get my son using the Kindergarten portion of the program.

I definitely think you should check out this program for your family! In fact, I Know It offers a free 60 day trial to interested homeschoolers and teachers.  The free trial page can be found HERE. Also, click the banner below and see what my 54 CrewMates thought of this program too.
