Time 4 Learning

I love Time 4 Learning! I wanted it to last longer. I asked my mom if I could go first one day and she said the review was over and I told her I wish it lasted longer

  • Do your kids love to be on the computer?
  • Do they need some fun school activities?
  • Do they need a little review of their school work during the summer?

Then Time 4 Learning could be for you!

Time 4 Learning is an online curriculum containing Learn to Read programs, Language Arts, Math, Science, & Social Studies. Every subject contains student paced interactive lessons with detailed record keeping for grades K-8.
I had the opportunity to use this program with my 3 daughters, ages 9, 8 & 5. It was very easy for them to get logged in and know exactly where they left off the time before. Two of my children enjoyed Time 4 Learning, but my other child just didn't seem interested. She isn't really into video games or sitting in front of the computer for very long so this would not be a good curriculum choice for her.

If you are not sure what grade level your child would be in for each subject that's not a problem, when you register you can select the grade level for each child, and when they log in my K had access to K and 1st grade my other girls had access to their current grade plus the grade above and below that. For example my 5 year old was signed up for K which was good for her math, but she already knows a lot of her sounds, so she could do 1st grade for the reading portion.

As the teacher you can assign different lessons or the child can work through the lessons as they are given. The entire lesson plans can be viewed here. If there is an area your child needs to work on you can find the activity number on the lesson plan and enter it into the activity finder & it will take you to the activities for that topic. The Lesson Planning Worksheet can help you determine how many lessons your child should do per day.

You can go to the progress reports to see just how your student is doing. You can generate your own reports by subject or by days, weeks, and months. The status portion is color coded so you can know at a glance if your child has above a 70% on their assignments. Once you are on the report you can click on the grade to view the test or quiz.

On the Parent Login you can print your child's reports, visit the forum to connect with other parents and search for other families in your area using Time 4 Learning.

There is also a getting started guide to answer all questions you may have about using the program.
At the time we used the curriculum it was $19.95 a month for the first child and $14.95 for each additional child. If you would like to try a free demo you may do so here.

Even though children can learn while being entertained, I would not want my child to use Time 4 Learning as their entire curriculum. As a homeschooling family we enjoy having our kids at home and learning together as a family. I would not want one of my children on the computer for long periods of time or spending the whole day taking turns on the computer to get out school work finished.

I think Time 4 Learning would be a good choice for:
  • children who need fun activities to reinforce their school work.
  • families who want to learn in a fun way during summer months.
  • a reward at the end of the semester.
  • homeschool families with a new baby.

As a member of TOS Crew, I received one month free access for my 3 homeschooling daughters in exchange for my honest review.
