Level K and Level 3 ~ these include pictures and details on what was covered and our thoughts on Time 4 Learning.
I wanted to come back and sum up just a little on how we finished up with Time 4 Learning.
Both kids were quite ill for a week so we missed that last week of the trial, which they were both disappointed about.
Overall I was very pleasantly surprised as to exactly what was covered in both Level K and Level 3, from the small amount of time we got to work with the program it appeared to be very thorough in both Language Arts and Mathematics.
I can see that this is definitely an entire curriculum and will meet all requirements across the years.
However for our famliy we want to do as much of our learning activities together, not sitting alone on seperate computers. Whilst I agree that technology plays a very important role in the lives of today's children, I now know that after this trial period working mainly on the computer is not something I want for my children.
I feel that Time 4 Learning would be fabulous as a supplement and this is something that I am still considering, however the cost (when using as a supplement) for me is a little deterring. When something is utilised to supplement your exisiting curriculum it is generally the first thing that gets put aside when time is restricted and as this is a subscription based program I am just not sure that it would be value for money for us.
In saying that though, if you have no qualms about your children using the computer to do the bulk of their work then I would recommend you take a closer look.
I'd like to thank Time 4 Learning for the opportunity. This was the first time we had ever looked at an all encompassing curriuclum and it was great to see what it entailed.
