"The software was simple to install and was up and running in minutes. The index of each program lists all topics allowing the teacher to select slides appropriate to their lessons."
"Teachers enjoy the ease of use from their computers. Students enjoy the colorful slides, especially the animations. I would recommend these programs to other schools."
"We purchased Math, ELA, Science and Key Vocabulary for all grade 3-5 teachers including special education teachers and our speech and language therapist."
James G. White, Principal, PK - 5
"The CD-ROMs are a great reinforcement and enrichment of vocabulary plus the software is interactive, effective, and fun."
Patricia Solano, 5th Grade Teacher, Math & Science
"Great software! The kids are engaged and learning the standards. Also, the software helps the teacher (or parent) be organized so that they cover ALL the topics and standards that the students need to learn."
Joanne Giroux, Science Teacher, Grades K-5
"The Science CD for grades 3-5 is excellent. My students are enjoying it. They love the hidden vocabulary words."
"We've used some of the geometry and it was helpful to be able to select appropriate slides from the index."
"I've started to use the Key Words in my classroom. I like the way the list is displayed to select words to focus on."
Christine Murphy, 5th Grade Teacher
"Using the Learning Workroom LLC software (ELA and Key Words) prepares my 6th grade students in the area of English Language Arts. The software is easy to use, fun, and colorful. I use this software as an alternative learning tool with our district's reading program. It is correlated to the State Standards. The slide shows prepare the students for multiple choice and open response questions. The students respond to the matching exercises with great enthusiasm. I recommend this program to fellow educators to use with their curriculum."
Vicki Macrokanis, Grade 6 ELA Teacher
" These interactive CD-ROMs, created by Learning Workroom LLC, are aligned with the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks and specifically address the skills and knowledge your child will need to learn. Come check out these great new items today!"
Children's Librarian, Saugus Public Library
"I purchased the Science CD for my grandson. He is very interested in all the slide shows but especially likes the one about animals. I like that he is learning lots of new science words."
Dan O'Neil, grandfather of a third grader
"I’m always on the lookout for great homeschool resources …. especially
resources that will help to supplement what we’re already learning.
Recently, I’ve discovered an awesome new resource, one that is geared
exactly toward what Jacob is studying this year in science. It’s the Learning Workroom Science CD for Grades 3-5
. This CD has actually won the 2010 Media of the Year Award for Educational Science Media by Creative Child Magazine’s Award Program
Jacob is studying all things earth science and physical science this
year, so this CD has hit right on the mark in supplementing his studies. Here are just some of the topics included on the Science CD:
Earth & Space
- Moon Phases
- Rocks, Minerals, Fossils
- Water Cycle
- Vertebrates & Invertebrates
- Life Cycle
- Food Chain
- Energy Forms
- Water- Boiling Pt. & Freezing Pt.
Technology & Engineering
- Simple Machines
- Complex Machines
- Flow Chart
- Environmental Problems
- Technology, Transportation, Communication
There is so much material covered on this CD, but it’s meant to act as a
supplement to your child’s education or even to prepare him for state
tests. It is a PowerPoint presentation that your child can click
through, and it includes a variety of facts, but it also includes
quiz-like questions, matching exercises, definitions, word scrambles,
fill in the blanks, etc. It really helps to spark the learner’s
thinking skills. There are plenty of illustrations throughout, so that
part is especially nice for those who learn better visually.
I love the fact that I can go to Learning Workroom’s site, as well, and print out different worksheets and forms
My favorite form, by far, is the Experiment Form. I’ve been looking
for a simple experiment form that Jacob can use with all of the
experiments he has to do in science this year, and I’ve finally found

"As a new homeschooling mom,
I"m constantly on the lookout for products to enhance my 9 year old's
education. As the home school year goes by, it is becoming
apparent that science is one of our least favorite subjects. The
procedure our curriculum calls for is a lot of book reading, then
quizzes and reviews over that information. But, bugs, flowers, insects
all seem to run together sometimes!
The opportunity came to review a Learning Workroom Steps to Scholastic SuccessTM Slide Shows
CD and I eagerly grabbed it! I had not heard of Learning Workroom
before but they provide educational CD's which are 'Fun, Educational,
and Effective Programs that Help Kids Learn'. They offer CD's in Math,
Language Arts and Science. Of course I chose the Science CD!
Upon browsing for products on their website,
I found out the Science Steps to Scholastic SuccessTM Slide Shows
was awarded the 2010 Media of the Year Award for Educational Science
Media by Creative Child Magazine's Award Program. That boosted my
confidence in this product!
The Science CD consists of slide shows
that present essential knowledge needed for success in school and on
state tests in a fun and interactive format so that students can use the
program at home or in the classroom. Each slide show is a powerful and
comprehensive teaching and learning tool!
The slide show plays on Microsoft Power Point and is vibrant and eye
catching. The information is presented in a fun, exciting and easy to
My son enjoyed watching the slides and connecting the questions and
answers. He was challenged by the fill in the blanks and loved when he
knew the answers. I loved the fact that he was learning while haiving
fun! The movement of the slides kept his attention while filing
knowledge into his mind! These are great educational tools. These would make a great gift for children in grades 3-8! Thank you Learning Workroom
for a great product and for saving our science class!"
Joyce Fulbright website:www.joybright.blogspot.com
"If you are looking for a way to give some independence to your learner then the Learning Workroom is
one way to do that. This is an interesting educational program
that children can use for math, science and language arts and
homeschoolers can benefit from this as well. If you’re
already using a language arts (I was given the the English
Language Arts Grade 3-6 for review) curriculum you can still use
this in conjunction with that. It is almost like having a
personal tutor in your own home and while working with the other
children your grade 3-6 could be learning via a power point
presentation on the subject of your choice.
The CD-ROM is $34.95 however it’s very much worth it and even my
husband enjoyed going through some of the slide shows. For
the English Language Arts CD-ROM there are three slide shows
including Language (Grammar), Reading and Literature and
Composition. These are interactive and very easy to figure
out with a few keystrokes or by using the mouse. Running the CD is
very easy and simple all you do is just insert it into the drive and it
should begin running automatically, however there are directions on the
back of the case if it doesn’t run like that for you."
homeschool mom I'm always looking for new tools to help make learning
fun and interesting for my kids. I recently had the opportunity to
review a cd-rom from Learning Workroom and we chose to try the Science for grades 3-5.
oldest is in third grade and he loves this! Science isn't his favorite
subject (if you ask him he doesn't like any subject!) but this kept his
attention. Often there is just so much reading and things start to get
jumbled for him and he doesn't retain a lot of what he's read.
The Learning Workroom cd is setup to be viewed in Power Point format (I use www.openoffice.org--it's
FREE!) and you can easily flip through the sections and slides. The
information on each slide is setup nicely and isn't overwhelming. We
also like the animation added to some of them!
I found to work for us is to use this as a supplement for what we're
reading about at the time. We read our science chapter and then we
follow up with our Learning Workroom CD. My son is able to go through the slides himself and the lesson is reinforced.
The Science CD inludes:
- Earth & Space Science (Solar System, Rocks, Soil, Weather)
- Life Science (Plants, Animals)
- Physical Sciences (Matter, Energy: Electricity, Magnetism, Light, Sound, etc.)
- Technology & Engineering (Materials, Tools, Design)
I can't say enough good things about the Learning Workroom! Other CD's available are:
Math - Gr. 3-4
Math Gr. 5-6
Science Gr. 3-5
English Language Arts Gr.3-6
The Science CD was awarded a 2010 Media of the Year Award from
Creative Child Magazine. The software provides an easy way for parents
to help their children achieve academic success.

don't know about you, but I am always looking for ways to facilitate
lessons learned in the classroom. I'm especially interested in finding
ways to keep my kids sharp over breaks. Christmas break, Spring Break
and Summer Vacation are all times when I see my kids losing some of what
they have learned. I am well aware that getting your kids to practice
the skills they have learned helps keep them from losing comprehension
heard about the Steps to Success software from Learning Workroom, I
was intrigued. I see it as a software that would be a great addition to
homeschool curriculum as well as a supplement for kids in school and/or
on break. The software is designed to make learning fun and to help
children succeed in school and on state tests.
Math - Gr. 3-4
Math Gr. 5-6
Science Gr. 3-5

software is a PowerPoint presentation that your child can click
through. I like how it has facts plus matching exercises, word scrambles
and questions in a quiz format. I got the Mathematics for Grades 3-4 for
Nathan. He's in this grade range and I thought he'd enjoy it. There
were parts he had a great time with, but I never thought about how much
he loves math. He's advanced enough in some areas that he would have
preferred the CD for Grade 5-6 for those things. So Nathan told me some
of the stuff was a bit old news, but he really liked the rest.
Nathan and I also like the downloadable worksheets found on the site.
Our favorite is the Number Sense Word Search. I also liked the
multiplication charts as we started working on multiplication facts. I
signed up for the FREE Worksheets
from Learning Workroom."

steps to learning number sense and operations, patterns,
relations and algebra. (he hasn't gotten that far in second
grade yet.) So I'm glad that he's learning it ahead of time.
I got a refresher course while going through it with my kids.
