    Splash Learn

    SplashLearn is a game-based learning tool for math, and we have used this online learning portal for math lessons. It is a good home learning companion that covers kindergarten to Grade 5 math topics.

    Parents can choose the goal (activity level, total screen time for the week, and the days of practice) for their kids for a given week. They get a preview of the available lessons in the curriculum, and the reports to track progress, performance, and accuracy.
    The interactive games and the rewards keep kids motivated to do more practice exercises.

    An annual SplashLearn subscription starts at US$2.75 per month (almost Php134) with access to up to three kids. https://www.splashlearn.com/


    IXL is a learning site that offers a K-12 curriculum for core subjects like math, language arts, science, and social studies). There are different IXL editions to choose from, depending on the country’s learning requirements.


    We have been using IXL (Singapore) for math and English for three years already. The subscription lets you access all lessons and levels from kindergarten to high school. It offers unlimited practice for topic mastery, has easy to challenging progressions, and provides analytics so parents can have insight into student performance, mastered topics, or “trouble spots.”

    All IXL skills correspond to a national curriculum. It also has rewards and printable certificates for the learners, which gives more motivation to complete different topics.

    IXL subscription costs about SG$20 per month (Php700) for math and English. Each additional child is SG$3 (Php106.50). https://www.ixl.com/

    Moby Max

    Moby Max is a learning tool that offers adaptive learning in all K-8 subjects covering math, language, and science. It is a US-based curriculum that is K-12 compliant and aligned with our DepEd’s standards.

    We have used Moby Max for our homeschool leveling assessments. We would check and use online lessons like math, language, and reading skills. Unlike IXL, however, the platform does not give us the flexibility to choose topics for the given time under a particular subject.

    The child needs to complete the lessons based on how they are arranged in the system. Parents can see the learner’s progress and some high-level analytics like the percentage of skill completion at a given level. It offers game time to learners, sees the rewards they’ve won, and checks in on their progress.

    MobyMax’s yearly subscription starts at Php3,000 for one subject access. https://learningplus.ph/products/moby-max
