For the past few weeks Zachery, Nicholas, Cameron and Kyle have been using Skwirk Interactive Schooling program. There are many reasons why our boys are enjoying the Online Education.
They are learning without realising it, and having fun – they even bug me to get onto the computer so that they can have “Their Turn”!
Online Education While on the Road
When we are out and about our boys love learning from life. If we go to Boondall Wetlands, then they are learning from being there. If we go to the beach then they are learning about their environment. They are even learning when we are going shopping! (no eyes rolling here)
There maths is taken care of when we go shopping, their english is taken care of when they are looking up a recipe and working out what to add to the shopping list!
When we are home they are asking to use Skwirk. Forget their work books – they would rather learn online. Which is really handy because once they have finished their lessons I am able to ask them what they have learnt, and even receive a written review for Nicholas and Cameron’s work by email 🙂
Skwirk Program Review:-
I like that each level is suitable for each of our boys.
I really like that they are keen to learn.
Our boys love the colourful animations.
They can create their own word searches.
Even Kyle (who is six) can now log-in and set about doing his work, without me being there!
Kyle Loves Learning With Skwirk Games!
Skwirk will speak as if a teacher is teaching them – it’s almost like they are in a classroom!
Once they have finished their lesson limit (they all have time limit otherwise I would never have the computer back!!) they can book mark their page and return to their lesson at another time!
Each of our boys are able to have their own account, for their ages and is based on schools Curriculum content.
Cameron’s English Lesson
School and at Home
Most Schools are now using Skwirk program as well as parents, so if your child goes to school, and wants to show you what they did that day, you are able to register for Skwirk. You can then log-in and together you can share their school day….sure beats hearing –
Mum – “What Did you do at school today”
Child – “Nothing”
Mum – “So what do you learn?”
Child – “Nothing”
Mum – “You went to school all day and you learnt nothing?”
Child – “Yep”
Have you ever had one of those conversations? We sure have over the years – with all of our boys…our teenagers where the worse for it!
Cameron History Lesson ~
Learning about Gold!
Skwirk Point System
Our boys are now trying to see who has the “Most Points” – they are trying to learn more points than each other….not realising that they are doing their school work!
Our boys can work at their own pace, and log-in when they are wanting to learn! They have animations, videos, exams, podcasts, learning sheets, and students reports sent to parents. It’s the online education that every family will want while homeschooling!
Skwrik is Suitable for ages from the start of school to year 10. It covers the core topics – Maths, Science, Technology, English, History, Geography, Commerce, SOSE and HSIE.
Nicholas Maths ~
He is learning yet doesn’t yet realise it!!
As our boys are exploring Skwirk we will have more detailed Skwirk Reviews, from the view-point of each childs age. For the time being we would love you to be able to use Skwirk for your family.
If you have school age children, and would like to have access to Skwirk then all you need to do is leave a comment below. Comment about how you would like to have Skwirk and I will be able to send you an email with more information and access for a discount price!
