”We have been using the Math and Language Arts program for about a month now. My kids are ages 11, 9, and 9. I love that the program adapts to their level and is able to single out areas that might need a little more attention. Their methodology for math lessons does seem confusing at times, since I am used to the "old" way, which was much simpler. I had originally planned on using this as a stand-alone math program, but we are instead using it as a supplement. The language arts portion is great! It is clear, and seems to be great for developing good writing skills so far. All-in-all, it is a good program. I do wish that it was broken down into individual lessons that last 15-20 minutes, to make it easier to assign work.”

”We love this program. I was looking for something that my 7 yr old could do on her own with little guidance from me. I also needed help in the area of writing. As a child who tends to want perfection the fact that the program is designed to teach her about sentence and paragraph structure and not spelling is great. The words are right there for her to type.”

”I am so happy with Giftedandtalented.com. I recommend this program to anyone who will listen to me.

I had always home schooled during the summer and the scheduling fun lesson plans was really time consuming and less effective than it needed to be. My daughter was falling behind in the public school repeatedly and I was stressed out from all the catching up we were doing -every year.

We started this program in the 4th grade with her and she is now on track to be 2 years ahead in 6th grade. My youngest has found her calling and is on track by the end of the month to be 5 YEARS!!!! ahead!!!! The lessons are coherent, fun and do not include "new math." The support team is wonderful as well!

This program is a Game Changer! Everyone should sign up! For less than the cost of 1-2 hours of private tutoring you can have a child that will be the head of the class! I wish this program was a public school initiative! Please use this Giftedandtalented.com - worth way more than the small fee!”

”My daughters use Redbird math as a supplement, and it is a great program. The content is rigorous, and I like that they practice until the concept is mastered. There is help offered if needed, fun graphics & the occasional game, excellent reporting & tracking, and encouraging progress trackers to share with the kids. My daughters' math confidence is strengthening, and building a solid math foundation through an online program seems much more fun than workbooks or tutoring.”

”My 8 yr old son has been using the language arts and math components for a few weeks now. He's used to multiple choice computer studies and making fast guesses that are almost always correct. This program does not reward that kind of fast guess "laziness" that my gifted kid has developed from years of not being challenged or being exposed to sophisticated questions. With all its good points, be aware that the language arts materials are not edited as well as they should be. We haven't made much progress with third grade language arts, largely because I've made him sit with me to work on those lessons. Repetitive phrases in some of the short paragraph samples (poorly written) and misused words like "curdles of milk" instead of "curds of milk" need to be discussed so that he will not adopt the mistakes and also not let them get in the way of his answers and his learning. Even though these mistakes and bad writing form annoy me, given this is a program that should be well-edited before it goes "live" under a pay structure, the mistakes give us a chance to discuss being a good editor and always checking your own work, even if you believe it is correct, and tightening up your own writing to avoid repetition. We will likely renew at the end of the period.”

”I think this is one of the best Math courses. I have three kids enrolled in various courses. If you enroll be prepared that the courses are very short. My 9 years old finished 3rd grade in just 2 months. It is recommended to do 3 times a week, which wouldn't work for my children. We have only weekends off. 3rd grade Math has very fun projects, that my kids enjoyed a lot. Sometimes it is quite challenging. Every new unit starts with beautifully made videos. My daughter turns Math into Art as she stops the video and makes drawings of animals. My oldest child absolutely loves it. My middle one who is gifted doesn't like it so much. He was wondering why if the unit about rockets he has to operate with birds and strawberries. The youngest one like it a lot but she doesn't have a very good control of a mouse when doing some activities. I would say it is easier than the course we had in virtual academy of CA public school. Advisors told me just let the kids start the next grade. I do plan on that. Language Arts course is very good. My daughter loves it. She is the only one big enough to start it. The voice in lectures is of a professional actor in perfect English.”

”We started the Redbird Advanced Math program with our 6 year old daughter. It has been great! She is somewhat gifted in math, and this program can definitely keep her challenged. Math concepts can be mastered easily through their approach. We will continue using this program and will consider trying the language arts program as well in the future.”

”Red Bird Math keeps my son very interested with the online manipulatives and quality of content. We are very pleased with the program and I never get an argument when it's time to work, because it's like smart play!”

”My seven year old has truly enjoyed the Redbird math program. As a third grader I wanted to introduce my student to some independent learning. RB math has been an amazing help in this. It made focusing in on math concepts that may have seemed difficult fun! My student found out she could do it! The games and challenge math were an added bonus. Thank you so much.”

”My son is an accelerated learner who likes to learn on his own, or teach himself. After completing Singapore's elementary math program, I've tried NUMEROUS math curricula for him, none of which we liked. Then I found giftednadtalented.com. It is FINALLY the right fit! He loves it!”
