Time 4 Learning {Review}

time for learningLast year our girls had a chance to play on the Time 4 Learning site, but this year it was Zachary’s chance to have a little fun! He was most willing to oblige too and was rather persistent in requesting to play.

What is Time 4 Learning?

Time 4 Learning is an online PreK - 8th grade curriculum that can be used a supplement to your current curriculum or even as your entire curriculum for language arts, math, science and social studies. The curriculum is tailored to each of your children's educational needs and levels and includes animated lessons, interactive activities, unit assessments, and printable worksheets for reinforcement (and it is ad-free!). Lessons are also correlated to standards in all 50 states.

The preschool curriculum offers two different levels of difficulty and covers 40 different topics including: shapes, numbers, feelings, human body, insects, color mixing, weather and much more. Our boys started on color mixing because we had just finished a unit on rainbows ~ and even Kaleb {age 3} was helping out.

Parents have the ability to log in and print automated progress reports for record keeping or portfolios. You can also see how your children are doing in all the areas that they are using, and see what areas they need to focus more attention/time on. There are lesson plans and a scope and sequence also available for parents to access at any time.

My Thoughts

The program is very interactive so kids don't realize that they are "learning". The activities were much fun, the graphics were fabulous, and Zachary was able to work through the program with little help from me. When his time was up, I could log on and print off reports to see exactly what he did while on the site ~ and make any adjustments for the next time he was online.

While Zachary did enjoy the program, $19.99 a month would be a bit steep for us to pay every month  ~ unless we were using it as our core curriculum, which we wouldn’t. I don’t think I could envision having him on the computer that much {nor would I want him on it that much}.

  • My daughter is special needs and we've been doing time4learning for a few weeks now. She loves it and is learning so much! She is delayed in her expressive and receptive language skills, but this program allows for me to get a good handle on what she knows b/c she isn't required to verbally answer any questions. I anticipate this program will be an integral part of our curriculum for a long time.

  • We use several different "supplements" for our curriculum. I can never find everything I want in just one, Time4learning is one of our supplements, my children LOVE it, but I am not a huge fan. I think that there is not enough actual content to the lessons. I also use lesson pathways (I am sure everyone already knows about this one) this is VERY content rich and offers great lesson plans for FREE. We also use headsprout, and that is o.k. for beginning readers but there are fees associated. Lesson pathways is the closest I have come to finding everything I need.

  • This is great information! I am looking into homeschooling my children for the first time. We'll be abroad for the year. It sure helps to get honest opinions from others with more experience. Thanks!
