Common Sense Media says
Basic early reading, math spiced up for good fun.
Parents need to know that Brainzy is an interactive platform that gives kids practice with pre-K, K, and 1st grade math and reading skills. Each subtopic offers a collection of games, songs, videos, and read-along storybooks. There's no inappropriate content, but there is some mild cartoonish aggression in some videos. Once kids finish an activity set, they can try another or play again to improve their performance. There's a lot of audio support and reading out loud, so pre-readers should be able to play without problems, although kids do need to be able to handle a mouse. A free version offers access to a limited number of individual games, whereas the pay version allows kids to follow a learning sequence with games and extra material. Parents can create up to three profiles and see detailed progress reports on how far along kids are in any particular topic.

Brainzy is a great way to keep parents, teachers and kids happy. In our home we are both the parents and the teachers (we homeschool :) ), so Brainzy has been a wonderful addition to both our home and our classroom. It's also great for parents who want to help their kids with supplemental classroom education on weekends or after school.
Brainzy is a gift that keeps on giving ... all year round. Although the "traditional" gift-giving day is over, that doesn't mean that you can't still give the gift of Brainzy. Whether you are giving it as a gift or whether you are using it as a fun, educational help, there is no doubt that they've covered the bases well and have come up with a great program. One of my favorite aspects of the games are that they encourage your kids to think creatively and to use their imagination. They really are fun - and it's amazing what types of things your children will pick-up and learn when they are having fun doing it!
Brainzy Brings Fun to Early Learning Efforts
I'm always interested in the ways in which companies are combining technology with learning initiatives, and I recently got the chance to check out Brainzy, a new math and reading program from Education.com that focuses on 30 foundational academic skills for ages 3 to 7. The site was developed based on data from the 20 million worksheets or modules downloaded by educators from Education.com every year (to put this in perspective, one-quarter of U.S. teachers have accessed materials from Education.com).
Brainzy eliminates the foundational learning guesswork on the part of parents, and teachers, by aligning with Common Core Standards on subjects like reading and math for pre-k, kindergarten and first grade students. Along with hundreds of academically-themed games, there are 50 educational songs and 50 read-along stories. For parents and educators who want to give the site a test drive, Brainzy offers a 7-day free trial. After that the monthly cost for families and teachers is less than a trip or two to the coffee shop and provides unlimited access to the resources on the site.

My daughter is in half-day kindergarten, so we are always on the lookout for more ways to reinforce what she’s learning during her shorter time in school. Usually the overwhelming clutter of other educational web sites makes worthwhile activities hard to find. But once we signed up for Brainzy, she was immediately able to jump in and get started.
