Big IQ Kids is an online self-learning tool (geared toward children grades 2-5) that gives you an opportunity to help your children learn spelling, math, vocabulary and US Geography.  This tool allows you to get your children started and monitor their success.

Children learn through games and drilling. 

Big IQ Kids has given parents the ability to integrate some of their own curriculum and have provided videos to walk you through the processes necessary to do so.

Your children wil be guided through the system using their Buddy…that they create.  This sweet, fun girl to the left in the red shirt with black stars is a buddy….and she has helped to make it fun for learning.  My children were a little caught off guard, at first by the robotic voice, but they are enjoying increasing their math skills and learning about the states.  It has been an added bonus to see that the system getnly teaches your children.  Children are encouraged, even when they get an answer wrong…and at the end of their lesson, they have heard tokens to play in the game room! Now,what child doesn’t like that?  AND…what parent doesn’t like having a game room that doesn’t require digging around in their pockets?

Spelling and Vocabulary…two areas that well, sometimes just are not so fun to work with…  BIG IQ Kids has a fun site that allows your children to work on both…and they offer a free account to do so.

  • You, as the parent can import a list for your child to work on OR you can utilize a list that BIG IQ kids provides for you.

Math:  As a parent, you can modify the program to suit the needs/skill sets of your child.

  • Your child can print your lessons or work them on the computer
  • My oldest is working on addition, subtraction (single, double digit) and multiplication/division…while my middle child is working on addition, subtraction and a little multiplication.
  • The lessons are basically drills and the child progresses based on how many answers they get correct.
  • Your child earns tokens to play game with at the end of each lesson.

States

  • State Location:
    • This section allows your child the opportunity to learn where states are located
    • Your children learns through drills that begin with visually seeing the state highlighted and identifying them.
    • As they become more comfortable and proficient, the visual is no longer provided
  • State Spelling
    • Level One allows the child to see the word and they type it in.
    • While they are typing it, their ‘tutor’ gives them specific information about that state
  • State Capital
  • State Abbreviation

 While this is just my review…others from the TOS Homeschool Crew had the opportunity to review Big IQ Kids, as well!  Check out their reviews here….I’m sure you will enjoy all of them!

  1. Hi, I’m on the TOS crew also and thought you did a great review! I’m also a new follwer of your blog.

    • Jennifer, Thanks! I’lldrop by your blog shortly! I love our reviews…they give me an opportunity to identify really good products for our home and others! Don’t you feel the same!!

    After my close friend, a teacher of 5th grade, purchased this program she ran into several problems. Logging in and setting passwords for the students reset her password and made it impossible to log in. She attempted for a month to contact someone through their email process but has so far reached no one and is still being billed for something she can’t use. My advice? Don’t purchase anything from this company. If you can use the free spelling great. Save your money and forgo any headaches from BigIQKids.
