This past week was crazy! My 2 year old had two doctor appointments. The first one was for a hearing evaluation and was in a city about an hour away. The second appointment was a heart evaluation and was in a city three hours away.
Normally, this schedule would totally wipe out our school week. But, not this time. The three R's were covered each day. My 13 yr old, 10 yr old and I are all reading ACROSS FIVE APRILS.
The biggest success of the week was my first grader. He has been using Time 4 Learning for less than 2 months. Because I was not confident in his abilities, I opted to sign him up as a first grader, with access to the Kindergarten program.
This child does not sit still! If he was in public school, I believe he would have still been considered a kindergartner at the beginning of this school year due to immaturity.
Anyway, In January, we began the T4L Kindergarten program. As of this week, he has done the full K math program and is one Review section away from completing the full K phonics program. He really breezed through it and has learned a lot. He is almost reading!
He loves it so much! He loves the graphics and the setup of the program. ( You can check out the demos here. ) He loves going to the playground after his lessons are done. (I love that I can set a time limit on the playground and control our account like this!)
I love the backpack-an area I can go to see all of his completed work for the day, week or month. I can even print reports. Oh, and I love the Parent's Forum. I do not post much, but I have had many questions answered just be reading the boards.
This program helps keep me on track every week-even though all of my children are not currently using the program. It's just easier to get everyone going when my first grader is happily chugging along on T4L!
This is a big issue in our home, because our little one has health issues and weekly appointments are the norm for us. In the past, it has caused a true school struggle. Since finding T4L late last December, these struggles have been minimized.
Thanks, Time 4 Learning!
