Learning Palette Review #hsreviews

Learning Wrap-Ups Review
No matter what kind of drills we used for math facts my kids get tired of them after awhile and like to change it up a little. Recently Alaina has been using LearningPalette.com from Learning Wrap Ups for her drills.
Learning Wrap Ups have actually been around for a long time. I remember when my older two kids were younger they played with a set of these at the house of a local homeschooling family. The idea behind the Wrap Ups were so the kids could wrap the string around the plate to the correct answer & when they flipped the plate over it should match the lines on the back side. Since then they have added a lot more to their company. They now have the Learning Palette Math Resource Kit  and LearningPalette.com is the online version. 
LearningPalette.com offers help in Math and Reading for grades K-5. The math help offers 6 different levels, and the reading offers 4 levels. Each level covers several different topics. The math sections covers topics from matching and early numbers to algebra, geometry, statistics, and probability. The reading sections starts out with the alphabet and moves up to grammar, synonyms, homonyms, and antonyms. 
Once you log into LearningPalette.com you get to choose math or reading and the level you want to work on. You will actually get a palette with questions in the center and you will move the correct colored disk for the answer into the empty circle around the outside. 
 Once all the disc have been placed in a circle a screen will pop up asking the student if they are done, then they are able to move on or go back to the main menu.
LearningPalette.com does not have to be worked on in order. You may choose what topics your child needs to work on each day. You are free to move back and forth through the topics. 

I used LearningPalette.com with nine year old Alaina. She is my math loving girl, so of course she used this primarily for the math section. This is an online program, so it is very easy to get started using on any device. I really liked the looks of this product and thought she would be thrilled with the colored discs, but she didn't like it as much as I did. She thought the words on the higher level reading section were too little. She could read them all, I think she thought it was too busy. She also said she didn't like having the numbers upside down. I think it might be better if the problems went around the outside and the colored discs were put into the center. That way the actual problem would be easier to see.

The LearningPalette.com is $25.00 for one student or $59.99 for up to 5 users for a one year subscription. You may also get a 20% discount if you use the coupon code HOMESCHOOL.
