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's quality 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.
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. Why not
try it now?

Capitalizing on Your Kids' Interests – The "Luminescent" Effect
Students like the interactive nature of online learning. They like
having independence and control over their lessons. For many children, the
ability to work at their own pace or to repeat a lesson privately is very
liberating. The Time4Learning integrated lesson plans include animation and
audio to engage students. Some have called it the "luminescent effect", which
compares a child's attraction to the computer with a moth seeking light. While
we hope that most of our summers are spent in recreation and with nature,
Time4Learning allows you to harness your kid's enthusiasm for the computer in a
way that can feel like a vacation while delivering much needed vocabulary and
Experiment with Different Pedagogical 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.
Frankly, textbooks are a reliable method to systematically cover large
components of the curriculum. In fact, they have traditionally been one of the
only ways to cover the material without having to continuously create lessons
from the basic standards...until now. Time4Learning is a leader of a new
generation of technology-based products which can cover large components of the
Time4Learning's 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).
Time4Learning's online learning system evokes multiple learning modalities and
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

Different Types of Online Learning
Homeschool parents often ask if there's a better educational approach
available. It's a natural concern. This is the education of your children,
after all. 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.
So how does Time4Learning position among your 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
Time4Learning.com is an online learning system that is student-paced and
parent supervised. This means that students log in to the system whenever
they want and use it as much as they want. The reports of their activities and
mastery of the materials are available to parents at anytime.
is the perfect time to try something new.
Whether mainstream, gifted, or special needs, Time4Learning provides a
flexible, student-paced approach. Students 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, either by following their learning path or by
choosing activities themselves. 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. This gives them a sense of ownership over their progress, which can be a
The learning materials take an "outside-of the-box" approach to learning;
a refreshing change from sitting in a classroom or at a table reading textbooks.
