As I have mentioned before I have 3 visual learners in my home who often make me wonder why in the world I even spend money on textbooks. For instance one time during a bike ride through corn field lined streets with my 12 year old son (now 14 ) he explained in great detail how Ethonal was made. I was so excited thinking that $50 science book taught him something when he said “yeah mom I learned it all off this documentary I found on Netflix”.
His answer made the $7.99 I spend on Netflix each month worth every penny and had me wondering why I spent $50 a year on a science textbook. Which is one of the reasons why when I saw a Learning With Homer ad recently it caught my eye and drew over to check out the site. When I did I started wishing I had something like Learn With Homer available for my children when they were pre-readers.
Learning with Homer is a comprehensive learn to read app that costs $7.95 a month and gives you a tonne of features for your subscription fee.
Here are just a few of the benefits of Learn With Homer
- A Reading curriculum that currently contains 150 step by step lessons and more lessons are being added regularly.
- A Story Time Area that contains a large library of folk tales, fairy tales, first stories and original stories that you and your child can enjoy together.
- Printable activities to work on fine motor skills needed for writing as well as Printable progress rewards.
- A secured Homer’s Pigeon Post area that allows your child to send drawings and notes to loved ones.
- A parents area where you can check on your child’s progress.
- An art area where you child can make unique creations.
When my children were the ages Learning with Homer caters to (prek to 7 years old) I spent money each month on workbooks and DVDs to help them with reading skills and I am pretty sure those purchases added up to more than $7.95 a month.
Among other great features I like that since Learning With Homer is an app you can take learning on the go with you. Your child can be working on their pre-reading skills while you are waiting at the Dr. Office, or traveling to grandmas, or where ever life takes you.
Best part Learn With Homer offers a 30 day free trial period (must cancel subscription before end of trial should you decide you don’t like the service in order to avoid subscription charges) . The free trial period allows you to fully explore the site and decide if it is a great fit for your child or not.
