"I love this -- My kids will pick it over xbox and wii for their "screen time"!"

Both sites are designed FOR Homeschoolers BY Homeschoolers -- See what other homeschoolers are saying about Always Icecream AND Clever Dragons.

Dr. Johannes Ziegler, Homeschool Dad and Always Icecream/Clever Dragons Founder says, "As parents of five kids, my wife and I have signed up our children on many online learning sites. We’ve found that while many of the sites have great content, the experience is not engaging enough for kids to return day after day. Always Icecream and Clever Dragons were designed to address this need."

Wholesome and Community-Based Learning Experience!

Always Icecream and Clever Dragons come with a free set of parent tools to help direct and monitor your children’s learning. Premium Parent Memberships are also available that add additional parent features such as detailed progress reports, the ability to assign specific learning and the ability to print report cards.

I'm so glad that the Co-op had the lifetime subscription avaiable! My daughter loves the site. She calls it her "facebook for kids." She enjoys the games, creating items to sell in her store and interacting on the message board with other children. I never get groans when I tell her to go play Always Icecream!
Dawn C, Co-op Member
We have Loved Always-Icecream from day One! We use it as a reward for our girls when they score well in school or have a great attitude. It is far safer than social media giants such as Facebook or Twitter. It is also a great way for them to connect with other girls their own age. They love the games on the site as well. I was impressed with the Geography information they picked up just from playing those games! Thank you for a great, safe site for our precious girls!!
S. Strickland, Co-op Member
my daughter is 13yrs and is DX with Mild MR. She has been stuck at a 2nd/3rd grade level for quite some time - since starting with Always-Icecream she has moved up to 4th and 5th grade work! She loves moving from subject to subject and ASKS to do school -Thanks for a great product!!
Susan, Co-op Member
My 6 year old daughter loves Always Ice Cream. She is always excited to go on it. It covers a wide variety of school subjects, its bright and colorful and no ads. It is carefully monitored. It is tons of fun with games such as mini-world, pet world and a great learning activities on there as well. I tried a similar website, educational, but I had a hard time getting my kids on it. Always Ice Cream, she begs to go on. Being 6 I do have to do most of her typing when she emails a friend through there, but she will definitely grow with it. We...(more)

Homeschool Apps by Always Ice-cream is wonderful!! It's a great & inexpensive way to take the online games on the go without having to worry about internet connection. The program is a fun interactive way for children to learn and brush up on various subjects. It's a gem and my daughter is thankful we purchased it.
Doreen M, Co-op Member
My 11 year old daughter loves the site. I purchased Always-Icecream for the excellent geography games, but see now that it is far more than just a game site. Always Ice Cream an excellent educational supplement that can be used as a "reward" for completing other assignments.
Tamiko, Co-op Member
My ~9 y/o daughter really enjoys her membership! They just did a nice upgrade so the girls are more human looking and not quite so "wii-esque" anymore. Only thing we wish is that she and her older brother could chat between her Ice Cream membership and his Clever Dragons one.
Bonny H., Co-op Member
My daughter has enjoyed Always Icecream. She learned a lot and it gave incentive to work hard on learning to read to be able to communicate with her online pals :-)
Lanie, Co-op Member
My kids played on it every morning during the summer. It motivated them to learn new things. They loved the geography, earning money to watch videos. It was great for elementary. I would have liked a little more for upper elementary going into middle school.
Serena, Co-op Member
My kids love to play Always Ice Cream and Clever Dragons and are learning so much without even realizing it. They beg to do it each day as a reward when their other school work is finished.
