Test A New Curriculum, This Summer and Enjoy Your Time Off!

Summer is a great time to try new things. After all – following the same learning routine year round can get to be repetitive… and boring. With Time4Learning.com, you can easily experiment with a technology-based curriculum that was voted as a top three selection of the Homeschool.com "Top 100 Educational Websites of 2009."

Time4Learning takes an “outside-of the-box” approach to education; a refreshing change from sitting in a classroom or at a table reading textbooks. Kids get an individual learning path based on subject skill mastery rather than grade level. They can work at their own pace and on their own terms. This gives them a sense of ownership over their progress, which can be a great motivator. Plus, students get access to the grade above and the grade below each subject, so they can advance or review any time they need to.

Summer is a perfect time to try new things and Time4Learning is a great place to start. You can be into your first lesson within minutes. Check out our screenshots to get a feel for the lessons

Here’s the idea:

Kids like using the computer and improving computer skills is more important than ever. Many of them would love to spend hours a day on the computer if allowed. So, they’re likely to approach the Time4Learning online curriculum with curiosity and enthusiasm.
As parents, you know students deserve a summer break. You also know that some of their hard-won academic skills will be lost during months of no academic activity. With 20-45 minutes per day online, your students can maintain and sharpen their skills while they get reinvigorated by the total change of approach. You might even find a new approach to curriculum that you can integrate during the school year based on your summer experiment.
Each student’s need for summer study is different. Some can use the time to review last year’s material, someone else might want to get a jump start on next year’s material, and others might best focus on one area of particular weakness or interest. Time4Learning.com has hundreds of lessons and activities for each grade from preschool to eighth grade for language arts and math.
The Time4Learning program is available to homeschoolers on a flexible and reasonable basis. Start and stop when you want. No long term contracts to sign, you pay month to month. The cost per student for a complete language arts and math package is $19.95 per month.
If you try Time4Learning and it doesn’t measure up to your standards, we offer a 100% money back guarantee within the first 14 days of enrollment.

Experiment with Different Approaches and Learning Styles

While many parents provide some creative hands-on and unit studies for their children, many rely on textbooks for a large part of their curriculum. The Time4Learning visual, hands-on and auditory program particularly helps those with learning styles not optimal for textbooks. Parents and educators know that students have dramatically different optimal learning styles. While some absorb the written word very well, others learn best when the materials are presented verbally (ie aural learners) or visually (ie visual learners) or in a manner that they can physically interact with (ie kinesthetic learners).

The Time4Learning online learning system works for a broad set of learning styles. This lets parents hone in on the technique that works best, making it easier for kids to absorb and retain their lessons. The reports of their activities and mastery of the materials are available to parents at anytime.

How does Time4Learning stack up against other online choices?

There are many learning websites with materials to read and videos to watch. These are useful resources. They differ from Time4Learning in that they don’t lead the student through a curriculum, they don’t track student’s progress, and they don’t have reports that are easily accessible by you.
There are many learning games. Typically, these games are very engaging and expose students to one area in some depth. They rarely aspire to comprehensive coverage of an educational curriculum.
There are many online curriculums which are more like online textbooks with links to videos. After the initial novelty of being online wears off, students tend to have similar reactions to them as they would to textbooks which are typically best read offline.
There are online schools that provide teachers, grading and standardized tests. They are essentially correspondence schools for distance learning which now use the internet rather than mailing materials back and forth.

Homeschool parents often ask if there’s a better educational approach available. Technology opens up a whole new world of options… millions, in fact; and sifting through millions of options can be a daunting task. With so many choices, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and take the “go with what you know” route. Summer is a good time to try and experiment with curriculum. And frankly, having a program that children like to use is already half of the battle! So, use the summer break to shake things up a little for your kids. You could tap into potential you didn’t even know was there!
