"I've been invited to try Time4Learning for one month in exchange for a candid review. My opinion will be entirely my own, so be sure to come back and read about my experience. Time4Learning can be used as a homeschool curriculum, for afterschool enrichment and for summer skill sharpening. Find out how to write your own curriculum review for Time4Learning."
I've been eyeing Time4Learning for some time now, wondering if that might be the way to go for my kids to have some supplemental age appropriate LA/Math. The price is a bit steep, though, especially if I just wanted to try it out. Happily, I found a way to try it out! I got an email inviting me (well, people in general) to try it out for a month to see if it's something that you could use. I usually hesitate to use online resources. The problem for us is the sketchy internet. If the internet's down or too slow, we can't do the lessons, which puts us behind and for us, it's virtually impossible to play catchup. We do too much. I also really don't like the kids spending hours (or even half hours, if I'm honest) in front of the computer. I know, I know. It's a world based on technology now and the kids need to know how to use it. All technology can also be used for good as well as evil (evil meaning addictive video games that turn my kids into raging monsters). So, I'm going to give it a whirl. We'll try it out for a month and if the kids really love it and it helps them, then I don't mind dishing out the cash. It'll help me, too, if they like it. Homeschooling, to me, is all about flexibility, learning to live in the moment, and reassessing each day to make sure we're on the right path to succeed in our goals. Who knows? Maybe this can help us on that path. So, stay tuned to see what I think! :)
