I recently had the opportunity to review Time4Learning.com, a welcome opportunity to help us through the transition of homeschooling with a new baby.
Time4Learning is an award-winning online education program for preschool through eighth grade that uses multimedia activities to teach standards-based curriculum. It is a popular homeschool curriculum, afterschool tutorial, summer skill sharpener and test preparation tool.
First of all, I was thrilled to see the range of subjects that they covered: language arts, math, science, and social studies. Another aspect that I loved was the ability to select which lessons to do. I could customize the program for what my son needed to cover. Each lesson is short, about 10 to 15 minutes, and comes with a printable worksheet and a quiz.
The science and social studies were very interactive, and he spent a long time clicking through the science lessons on habitat and animals.
Though Time4Learning might not have been the perfect fit for our everyday homeschool, it was a fun supplement to what we were doing, a break from the normal pace, and a definite help for me as I adjust to teaching from the couch with a baby attached.
Membership is $19.95/month for the first child and $14.95/month for each additional child. You can also check out the lesson plans and free demo lesson or take advantage of their 14-day money back guarantee.
