The Learning Palette comes in two versions - physical and online. The online version of the Learning Palette offers unlimited access to 55 titles for Math and Reading. Each title includes 12 lessons with 12 questions per lesson for a total of 660 lessons and 7,980 questions! Basically, it covers a lot of material! The physical and online versions use the same cards, but with the physical version you would need to purchase each grade level, while the online version gives you access to all levels for both reading and math. Both are interactive and engaging!
How else are they different?
Well, the online version uses a click and drag function to place the colored disks in the answer slots. Which, I'll admit, can be tough for younger children, but older children who are experienced with using computers should not have an issue with. Once the palette is complete, a box will appear that will ask you if you are finished and by selecting yes you will see check marks for correct answers and x's for incorrect answers. You can then refresh the palette if you would like to try again or move on to the next card. You will be able to see how long it took to complete the palette, as well as the number of complete answers. This method makes it considerably easier for younger children to use the program, because they do not have to keep flipping the cards around to check their answers and they automatically move on to the next card without having to ask the parent to get it for them.
The physical version is hands-on and self-correcting. The kits come with a base, cards and colored disks. You set the card in the base questions side up, use the disks to place your answers, and then remove the card and turn it over to see if your answers are correct. Children can use the Learning Palette individually or with a small group. It's easy to learn how to use it and children will love the freedom of working on the cards all by themselves! This may require parents or teachers to set up the next card for them.
This is what the physical Learning Palette for Math looks like. All of the physical Learning Palette's are packaged in a clear vinyl case. The base, cards and disks all fit inside for easy storage!
While Munchkin knows the entire alphabet as uppercase and lowercase, he still needs some practice matching the two. There are typically 3 or so cards for each type of activity, such as matching uppercase and lowercase letters or matching beginning consonants to pictures and words.
Just like with the math kits, the Reading Learning Palette comes in a clear vinyl case and all the pieces fit inside to keep things organized! Since homeschooler's usually have tons of loose learning materials, it's great that these are self-contained kits. That makes clean-up quick and easy!
