Ed the Educational mouse blasts this phrase from our computer speakers every weekday morning.
I very rarely post about homeschooling on this blog. However, there could be a chance reading by someone thinking about homeschooling, or desperate for a change in the way they are doing things. So, I've decided to share our experience with Time 4 Learning.
Time 4 Learning is a computer-based curriculum for preschool through eighth grade. My first grader is currently using the program.
Since we began T4L, it isn't unusual for him to ask to 'start school'. A six year old....asking for school?!?!? He loves it! And he is learning so much.
When he finishes his daily lessons, I can take a peek at a list of his completed work, or I can create reports and print them.
Then, he is free to go to the playground-an amazing selection of arcade and educational games to play for the length of time I decide in advance.
The customer service at T4L is exceptional and the parent forums are a great place to ask your peers about their experiences.
You can click here to see the helps and hints section and get a feel for the program. Better yet, go take a look at the free demo lessons.
You can also click on the link for Time 4 Learning in my favorites column on the right side of this blog.
It really is a fun and effective way to learn!
