Benjamin Franklin once said, “Of two things you can be certain: death and taxes.”
I think good ‘ol Ben might add computers and the internet now.
Recently we reviewed the website, Time4Learning. According to their website,
Time4Learning is a technology-based online educational program that teaches preschool to eighth grade curriculum using a combination of animated lessons, interactive activities and reinforcing worksheets.
Time4Learning is a great curriculum for families who homeschool. It is also a great after school skill sharpener and is often used for remediation and test preparation. Whether mainstream, gifted, or special needs, Time4Learning provides a flexible, student-paced approach.
For $19.95 a month ($14.95 for each additional child) you will have access to
- Online curriculum for grades Pre-K through 8th
- More than 1,000 interactive animated lessons
- Self paced lessons that kids will enjoy working on
- Math & algebra tutorials & printable worksheets
- Language arts, phonics & grammar lessons
- Interactive, project-based reading activities
- Science (grades 1st - 6th) & social studies (grades 2nd - 7th)
- Detailed reporting for easy record keeping
- Extensive lesson plans & teaching tools for parents
- and much more...
You can check out a demo to see if this would be an online program that you would like to enter into your home.
Here is a screen shot of all the activities that Mr. Smackdown and Mr. Me-Too have been able to do in the Pre-K section.
And I didn’t even capture all of the choices . . .
For sure they enjoyed this colorful website filled with variety. Especially since TV viewing is pretty much nonexistent these days, I know that working on the computer is a treat for them. In fact, one afternoon I was bent on cleaning out my closet due to pregnancy hormones. Since I could not be dissuaded otherwise, I allowed the boys to play on this site for quite some time. They did not tire of it and were sad when the computer battery died.
I supposed that you could call this website educational. I however prefer to work more closely with my children, though at times having an additional resource that I don’t have to closely monitor can be helpful.
But $19.95 a month is a little step for this homeschooling family.
