Princess B and I were very excited to start our trial for Time 4 Learning. I have been looking for a program online to supplement our homeschool curriculum, and a program that would reinforce the skills that she was building during the school day. Princess B was looking for something that was engaging and fun (and that didn’t seem like “work”). Time 4 Learning did just that! I was very pleased with the whole trial.
With a membership there is so much that can be done! They offer a full curriculum with lessons that meet your state standards. They offer tons of lessons in Language Arts, Math and even in Science and Social Studies. Time 4 Learning was set up so that you could use their program as a homeschool curriculum, an after school program or a summer program.
They allow the parent to lesson plan and give you all the tools you would need to create your weekly lesson plans for your child. They even help you navigate through the whole process! I really loved that they offered a grade book, I really liked that I was able to go into my account, and check on Princess B’s activities, what she had completed and how she did on each lesson. I was then able to take her scores and decide if we could move on to another lesson, or go back and review. I also liked that they offer you at least 2 years of lessons. With Princess B I was able to choose lessons from Kindergarten, 1st grade and even some lessons from 2nd grade.
Princess B really loved the animal characters in each lesson. They were very engaging and silly. She was able to navigate the site and the activities on her own, which is always a plus. The activities in her age range were not too hard, so she was easily able to complete her lessons without feeling like they were too hard. I could also give her a challenging activity by selecting lessons (on a similar topic) from another grade level.
Princess B would work hard during her school day to complete her core work so that she could use Time 4 Learning. She thought it was more like games then actual school work! She was excited to see what new activities awaited her, and of course what the silly characters were up to.
Overall, I am really thrilled with Time 4 Learning! It met my needs of reinforcing what Princess B is learning in school, it is very engaging, and easy to use and navigate. Princess B was sad when our last day of our trial ended. It would definitely be a program that I would be interested in keeping for Princess B to use.
