My friends, Shez and Lydia, run The Book Arts Bash and because that doesn’t require all of their massive surplus of homeschooling energy, they also put on the GUESS Homeschool Science Fair. Dreambox is one of their sponsors, which led me to give them a try for my 2nd grader.
Dreambox is fun! Martina had a great time exploring the website, playing games and learning a few things while in the process. I think that Dreambox is good reinforcement for concepts learned in homeschool or school. Dreambox would also be a good addition to a summer learning program while children are enjoying their summer break. The site would help them keep up to date and maybe even moving forward in important subjects like math and English all in a video game type format. What could be more fun?
Giving Dreambox a try is a win-win situation. There is a no-strings, 14 day free trial. If it works for you, then you pay a minimal fee for the rest of the year and if you don’t simply cancel before the end date.
Dreambox, in my opinion, would be wonderful for advanced preschoolers as well as for children in typical school settings through 2nd or 3rd grade.
