We hope your homeschool year has gotten off to a great start! Ours certainly has. The addition of our new high school curriculum has brought a better response than we ever could have imagined!

And speaking of responses– The diversity of our members and the innumerable ways they use Time4Learning amazes us every day. So rather than talking about ourselves, we thought we’d share the stories of a few families who are using our curriculum to homeschool their kids. Perhaps their experiences will help you in your journey.

Homeschooling 2 high school boys

Katrina’s Story:

We stumbled upon Time4Learning in Fall 2008 when we became accidental homeschoolers and I needed something NOW for my son! The curriculum was right, the price was right and then when we used it, we fell in love! It became our core curriculum for 5th through 8th grades! My boys blossomed using this! I had no idea how far behind in public school their learning was for their grade levels. But once they started using T4L, they quickly caught up to where they should have been.

This year we were lucky enough to come back to T4L because they added high school. As a work-at-home mom running a small childcare and now homeschooling, I didn’t have time, nor energy to pull together lesson plans. Time4Learning gave us the basic core curriculum we needed and we were able to supplement with a few other things geared for each of my boys, like Latin and Video Game Design. It was like we never left. In the past 2 weeks of using the new high school program, we have had no meltdowns, no issues and our school day flows!

Janet’s Story:

Meet Janet, from Pembroke Pines, FL.
Homeschooling a daughter with
Down Syndrome

Our daughter has Down syndrome, and we’ve been using Time4Learning for almost five years. Although she is high functioning, it was very difficult finding just the right curriculum for her. If we used workbooks, we had to make copies of the pages for extra practice and reinforcement. You see, children with Down syndrome learn best with lots of repetition. One of our favorite aspects of Time4learning is that our daughter is able to repeat lessons as many times as necessary. Even if she has done well on a lesson, she often needs to review it several times before the concept becomes concrete. We also like that each time she repeats a quiz, the questions change. So even though she may take the same quiz several times, mixing up the questions helps reinforce the concepts she learned in the lesson, and it prevents her from memorizing the answers.
Our daughter is an avid reader, so language arts is her best subject. As a supplement to Time4Learning, we do some copy work, read good books, watch educational movies and play educational games. Math, however, math is a challenge for her. She’s actually a couple of grade levels below in math. So it’s so helpful for us that we don’t have to work at one grade level across the board in every subject. I don’t have to worry about her becoming frustrated in one subject or bored in another. And lastly, the best part about Time4Learning is that our daughter enjoys learning! I love hearing her giggle as she does her lessons. What a joy!
