last year, for our homeschool group's Summer Bash picnic, I hired a clown..."Jen-Bo" is her name. While having much fun (with her kids as her assistants), I found out that she too was a homeschooling parent and of course we "got the yappin' " LOL. She had a 7th grader at the time, so I inquired about their curriculum....and can you guess what she told me?....YES! Time 4 Learning! Oh how excited she was talking about the program (I became excited too!). I'm not one to just spend my precious money on something just because "I heard it through the grapevine"....so I decided to see if I could review it. Take a look at what I found!
I love how I was able to choose what grade level my child should begin on. My daughter is really in 1st grade but for some subjects, she is on either a 2nd or 3rd grade level. With Time 4 Learning I was able to tailor each major subject area to her needs and I can change my mind at any time...greatness! Now for the the subject areas. I'm sure you wondering how many subjects Time 4 Learning covers right? Well....it's so many that I can't even count, but if you click here http://www.time4learning.com/education/curriculum_overview.shtml#overview
The progress report: This is a great tool for keeping tabs on your independent learner. While the students must complete lessons to earn playground privileges, they don't have to score well on the closing quiz. For instance, my daughter had completed all of her lessons for the day and had already went to the playground. She had no idea that I was on another computer checking her scores for that day
When we first began, there were soooo many subjects to choose from...I didn't know where to begin. I found a tab that says "lesson plans" (sweet!) and I could not believe my eyes....it was love I tell you....love! check it out
For each grade level, Time 4 Learning has already mapped out a wonderful lesson plan for you! I absolutely adore this feature. It enables me to get all the benefits from the program as well as incorporate the lessons with our off-line studies. This feature is totally optional. You can create your own lesson plans if you wish to do so. You can also print out the lesson plan too! Check it out!
How cool is that! Can Time 4 Learning get any cooler that this?.....Why yes it can! Not only does this wonderful program offer the best online educational experience for the average student, but they also cater greatly to students with special needs. Programs are tailored to those with dyslexia, ADD/ ADHD, Visual learners, CAPD & gifted learners. But today, in light of "World Autism Awareness day" (April 2nd) I have chosen to highlight the Educating You Autism Spectrum Child page.
In conclusion, I can honestly say that my children have never been so eager to learn! Each day the first thing they want to do is Time 4 Learning. There is no turning back now. We have found a program that not only fits the students well, but fits the budget also. Thank you Time 4 Learning....Your name is good with me.
