My son is having the best time using Time4Learning's Math and Language Arts curriculum.
I had been looking for a math program that could hold his interest, and this program seems to be doing that.
Although an avid reader, doing Language Arts used to bring him to tears. Now I hear him laughing!
On the parents end, the entire program is simple to use. You can print off a schedule for the year or just let them go at their own pace. Either way, all you have to do is follow the arrows. This will take you through the program in sequence.
Well, our trial period is almost over, and we have signed up to use Time4Learning from now on. My son has thoroughly enjoyed using the program.
What my son likes:
- The program is fun to learn with.
- The characters that teach the Language Arts lessons are funny.
- He gets to start the Art class in a few days. (There is a 30 day waiting period before starting the Art program.)
- The positive messages in fun voices and extra help (via computer program) he gets on tests he doesn't do so well on. It encourages rather than discourages.
- I love to see my son enjoying his lessons.
- Ease of use.
- The program keeps track of scores.
- There are worksheets to print for extra help.
- There are activities to do.
We are still using ScienceFusion and Scott Foresman Fantastic Voyage (language arts) along with Time4Learning and it's worked very well.
When we use ScienceFusion, we we'll look up lessons on T4L that coincide with what he's learning.
As of right now, we are using both Scott Foresman and T4L simultaneously. We are also using the spelling lists and lessons in Language Arts Extensions. It's working out great!
Thanks, Time4Learning, for giving us the opportunity to try out the program for an entire month! It's been wonderful!
