Brainpopjr is a website for teachers and homeschool families to use to help students with homework. Brainpopjr is only for grades Kindergarten through third grade. Brainpopjr.com offers six subject areas to choose from for homework help, Science, Health, Math, Reading, Writing, and Social Studies. Brainpopjr is also available in Spanish.
Once your children finish all of the videos on their age level, they have the option to begin the next grade level. I like this because my daughter is ahead one year in her schooling. So, it lets students work at their own pace, and keeps advanced children from getting bored.
I liked the videos and the quizzes, but I am unhappy about the price. Brainpopjr.com requires an annual subscription. Your subscription price varies on whether you are a homeschooler or a teacher or how many students that are going to access the account. As a homeschooling mom I chose the smallest homeschool subscription to select and it presented an annual fee of $115. That is too much money for me; however it may not be for someone else. Weigh the options. If money is not a concern, then I recommend that you sign up for this site and Brainpopjr. may be worthwhile for you.
For a school to use Brainpopjr, there is an annual fee of $725.
There is a free 5 day trial that you can sign up for, which is how I was able to do this review. I would suggest that you sign up for the free trial and have your kids play the games for five days. They will have fun watching the videos and they will be quizzed on what they have learned. After that, you will be able to make the most informed choice about the site and whether it would be right to use in your family.
