Typing Tournament Online and Maths Invaders Online from EdAlive ~ a TOS review

It’s a beautiful day in our part of the country! I hope you can say the same for yourself. As we wind down our school year, I am excited to share with you today an online typing tutor program as well as an online Math game that my girls, Montana (12) and McKenzie (9), have been enjoying from EdAlive. EdAlive generously provided us with one-year subscriptions to both Typing Tournament Online and Maths Invaders Online. Let me tell you about it.

EdAlive is an Australian based company that provides a variety of online learning games to meet the needs of children in grades K-12. We received two one-year subscriptions for a typing tutor program called Typing Tournament Online and a fun math practice program called Maths Invaders Online from EdAlive.

Learning to type is a very important skill that I stress as my kids have gotten older. Around 7th or 8th grade, depending on maturity, I require my girls to type out their comprehension questions so that they get used to not only using the keyboard but it saves on paper and eliminates lost notebooks throughout the year. My rising 7th grader was kind of thrown into the world of typing early when we joined an online history co-op. In the beginning it was painful to listen to her hunt and peck away at the keyboard searching for the letters. Now that she has had a few years under her belt, we are working on accuracy and speed as well as hand placement as we steam forward into upper middle school.

The Typing Tournament Online program is an excellent online program for teaching 10-finger touch typing. We are a competitive bunch here at A Stable Beginning and I too jumped in on seeing how fast I could type. Taking turns trying to beat each others scores made the game even better. The best part is that Montana is pushing herself to beat my score and in return getting good practice in learning how to type correctly.

The program is real-time and works on Windows PCs, Apple Macs, Surface Tablets, iPads and iPhones, Android tablets and phones.

Going through the program the student can set goals and practice in a tournament format. With 128 lessons you and your studentTracking progress is easy with the lesson map that includes completed lessons, practice drills, and level tests. Once skills are mastered certificates are offered for a job well done.

The other game we received was Maths Invaders Online that focused on practicing math facts. It is suitable to students in grades K-10 and includes two types of game play; Space Rescue and Galactic Campaign. McKenzie, has been playing around with this online math game and starting with Level 1, she has been working through the levels mastering math facts along the way. 

With this program your student will learn to master:

 Times Tables 
 Square Roots 
 Directed Numbers and more!

Each of these programs is fun for my girls so it doesn’t actually seem like they are doing school work. They both were able to log in at least 3 days a week and spend at least 15 minutes playing games. It normally turned into longer sessions because once they started playing they didn’t want to stop. I love learning in disguise!

We have thoroughly enjoyed both of these programs and they have earned a spot in our summer learning line up. The girls will continue to work with them throughout our summer break and into next school year because they are both fun and effective. But don’t just take my word for it!
