I’ve been invited to try Time4Learning for one month in exchange for a candid review. My opinion will be entirely my own, so be sure to come back and read about my experience. Time4Learning is an online educational program that can be used as an online homeschooling curriculum, afterschool tutorial or as a summer study tool. Find out how to write your own curriculum review for Time4Learning.
I have recently been putting in a lot of 60-70 hour weeks while we work on launching a new product, launching a new website and combining the website, forum and blog into one big site with a new design. Talk about a tall order! It’s been so difficult to juggle homeschooling both kids, the business, housework, laundry and cooking along with caring for my parents when they need me. I don’t want my kid’s education to suffer, but I’m committed to homeschooling them. So I have decided that while we go through this very busy season, to turn to an online schooling option so I can be assured that the kid’s education will not suffer and they can still remain at home and I direct their education. Most online options are run by full school year and you can’t do one semester or even a portion of a semester. I have chosen to try Time4Learning, because it is on a month-by-month basis, and is extremely flexible in scheduling. You can find where your child is in each subject and pick up there. It also came highly recommended by several friends who homeschool, so I decided this would be or best option to finish out this semester and fill in the gaps through summer before we start next year.
Time4Learning Covers language arts, math, science and social studies. We will continue to do handwriting worksheets and Bible lapbooks together.
We only have a half-day of school on Fridays, and the kids often ask to do some school on the weekends. We also go year-round. So we don’t have as heavy of a daily load as some families do. It’s a flexible program that will allow your child to work one grade up or down from there they are, so if they’re a little behind or head on one subject, it isn’t a problem. You set the schedule, so you don’t have to default to someone else’s timetable as to what they think your child should be doing. It also grades the work for you and has a parent’s area where you can view the scores and track their progress. I like that it even allows you to see how long each child took to complete an item.
So keep an eye on the blog, I’ll post about our experiences over the next 30 days and what the kids think about the program. If you decide to take a look, please let them know that KerryAnn Foster referred you.
