"Our mornings, built around textbooks and
workbooks and other desk work, had been going badly. With four kids, I was
exhausted by the planning, the correcting, trying to follow up on lessons
that my kids hadn't learned, and frankly, by chasing the kids to get back to
work. With Time4Learning, our homeschooling is a lot smoother and we are all

One of the greatest advantages of homeschooling is
that the learning environment does not have to emulate the traditional classroom
setting. Yet many parents start their homeschooling experiences with a
traditional textbook and worksheet format because of its familiarity. The good
news is that there are offerings that allow students to learn while breaking
away from the methods that feel stale to today's students.|

textbook-based study for many reasons:

Picking a curriculum for homeschooling seems to
be an ongoing process. Many parents find that what works for one child, doesn't
work for the next. What works in what subject might not work in another. Most
homeschool parents rely on a eclectic mix to best meet the needs and wants of
the homeschooling family. So how can a curriculum source like Time4Learning be
This example of a homeschooling method comes from
a Time4Learning parent named Kelly when she was asked if Time4Learning was "the
answer" for her children:
"I would be cautious about a curriculum that promised to be all that your
child will ever need. My children are each very different so I treat each one
appropriately. As an example, here is the starting point that I take for my
Starting with the language arts program, our family uses
Time4Learning for our language arts foundation curriculum. Time4Learning's
language arts curriculum is thorough in its coverage of phonics, grammar,
vocabulary, verbal comprehension, reading comprehension, critical
thinking, and literary analysis. If I feel my child needs additional practice on
a certain language concept, I can usually find it in the Time4Learning language
arts library of extensions.
We supplement Time4Learning with my own
version of a reading, journaling, and handwriting program (keyboarding for the
Reading is very important to us so our
schedule includes a weekly library visit to pick up new books. There is an hour
of daily reading. We alternate between reading aloud or to herself. I still
sometimes read to her.
All my children write in their journals each day. Monday is
creative writing, Tuesday is book report, Wednesday is whatever they want,
Thursday they review a lesson and on Friday, they choose their favorite journal
entry from the week, correct any spelling, punctuation, or grammar errors and
write the edited version in their best penmanship. This provides practical
application of some of the language skills they've learned.
I have a handwriting program to develop fine motor skills and learn
penmanship. At third grade, the kids follow a typing program.
I have children with a range of math abilities and Time4Learning has been
a good choice for all of them. I add math drills for the kids who need it.
I supplement Time4Learning's Science and Social Studies with "read alouds"
from the library. I locate books on a subject that is currently being studied and read these aloud to my children in the evening. This often generates some interesting discussion, which helps build conversational and verbal expression skills."
While Time4Learning has a lot to offer, what and
how it is used is still decided by the homeschooling parents, which allows them
to maintain their independence while creating the optimal learning environment
that will work best for their students.
After all, that is why they started homeschooling
in the first place.
