Online math facts practice with Online Times Alive! ~ a TOS review

It never fails…around 4th grade my kiddos just seem to struggle with their math facts. Thankfully, I have a secret weapon to use to get them over the hump. Because everyone needs to learn the math facts and getting a head start is the best way to go. We received a 6 month subscription to the online Times Alive program and also the Times Alive App.


Memorizing multiplication facts can be boring and, for some students, difficult, but with the Online Times Alive subscription from City Creek Press, Inc. students learn math facts by watching videos and practicing math facts. Its super fun and for my ten year old little girl, she loves it!


Online Times Alive! is a fun, engaging, supplementary math program founded by former Sylvan Learning Center owner Judy Liautaud that has been “Helping Kids Get a Kick Out of learning since 1992.” Times Alive! is the interactive online game that uses stories, songs, and quizzes to help teach the multiplication facts from zero through the nine.


I love that this program really plays to the audio and visual learner that McKenzie is by providing short animated video clips with catchy lyrics for her to learn. Because we have been super busy running here and there to physical therapy and her own practices, utilizing the Times Alive App on my iPad mini has been a lifesaver for us.


My son, Micah who is 5, has really loved following along with McKenzie during her screen time. I love that the story is read aloud to the child while they view the music video and the catchy songs are also a favorite in our house. Just the other day I overhead McKenzie humming along to the 4x8 song and Micah tried to sing too.


I only discovered by accident that the data from the Online program does not transfer over to the App. The online program allows students to stop anywhere and resume where they left off. However, it doesn’t log in the info to the App. But for our family that is not a huge deal! We still love the program!
