Time 4 learning is an online Preschool - 8th grade curriculum that can be used as a supplemental or entire curriculum for language arts, math, science and social studies. Lessons correlate to standards in all 50 states.
It is also AD-FREE!!
The kids can access the grade above and below their current grade.
I never actually spent a lot of time in the parents area as my main goal was to watch how my three little ones responded to the program.
We tested preschool, 3rd, and 5th grades.
We were using this along side our regular 'free' Charlotte Mason curriculum.
Little Jam (DS 2) was probably to young for this program, it didn't really keep his attention.
Boo (DD 8) played on it quite a bit. She found an area about Family History that she especially enjoyed!
Jam (DS 10) Went to the site a couple of times (drawn in by the recess computer games!) We worked on some maths together and it explained concepts really well!
I love the fact that you can set the 'playground' to turn off after a certain amount of minutes. It automatically shuts down even if they are in a middle of a game! (Much to Jam's distress!) It took the 'get back to work' nagging out of the equation!!
I think by kid's view of the program would have been better if they were using it as there main source of work! ( Play on the computer for school ... Sure MOM!!)
But they just wanted to hit the 'playground' as they thought they had already done school!!
Although we are homeschooling and it doesn't really gel with Charlotte Mason. I can see that this site would be excellent for summer and holiday use. It would also be great for those kids who need some extra help keeping up with grade level at school.
I am not sure if we will continue with this membership full-time but it maybe something we come back to during our home-school summer! Which makes the 'no commitment' part excellent! I would recommend everyone try it out!
Pricing is subject to change but at the time I wrote this the price was $19.95 for the first child and $14.95 for subsequent children.
As you see below (pulled of their website) - Two weeks money back guarantee !! it is what I have heard said a 'No-Brainer'!!
