Update: Our A+ TutorSoft Math giveaway winner is Sara Marti! Congratulations, Sara!
Good morning! Today I’m very excited to be hosting our first-ever giveaway on Look! We’re Learning! But more on that in a bit.
It’s back to school planning time and we’ve decided to go with A+ TutorSoft as our math program this year. As I mentioned last week, Tigger needs more help with her math this year, especially since she has so much trouble concentrating on her work. I’m a traditional learning type, so I kept insisting on workbooks and quizzes and we’ll use those as part of our program this year. But she responds much better to bright and engaging visuals, so it was time to pick up a computer program for math.
We stopped by the A+ TutorSoft booth at the Southeast Homeschool Expo last weekend and bought the complete 3rd grade curriculum on CD.
Since the expo was running, we got the program for nearly 40 percent off the regular price, which was a welcome relief for our checkbook. I also bought the PDF version of the 3rd grade curriculum and 3rd grade workbook from Currclick, so I could print off the worksheets and refer to the written lesson whenever I needed.
Here’s what I like about A+ TutorSoft:
- The program is simple enough for kids to use on their own, so I can work with Tigger through a lesson plan and then let her complete the exercises herself.
- The lessons are interactive, which reduces the likelihood that she’ll get bored.
- The program allows me to skip lessons, so she doesn’t have to sit through concepts she’s already mastered.
I’ll be posting about our progress going forward with the program this year. While we’ll be using the CD software and workbooks, A+ TutorSoft also offers an online monthly subscription program for homeschoolers. The online program is a good option for parents who aren’t sure if they’ll like the curriculum and prefer to try it on a month-by-month basis. If you’d like to purchase either the online subscription or the software for yourself, you can use coupon code LOOKWERE to save 20 percent off the current website sale price!
Even better, A+ TutorSoft has agreed to offer a giveaway for a three-month subscription to its online program for grades 1-4 (a $30 value)! Full details are posted below and the giveaway will be open for seven days! You can come back and enter once per day and earn additional entries through social media.
