Time4Learning Review

I used Time4Learning with my 2 girls ages 11 and 13 in 6th and 8th grade respectively. 

I like the options and support Time4Learning gives to parents but instead of giving my opinion as a parent I thought I would let you, the reader know what my children thought of the program instead.

My girls were OK but not super crazy about using Time4Learning.

This is their opinion about Time4Learning.....

Both of them stated they learned new vocabulary words easily.  My youngest learned the Greek alphabet and enjoyed spelling everyone's name in Greek.  My oldest learned not only Roman numerals (she already knew) but also Greek numbers. 

My youngest felt the material was too young for a sixth grader.

My oldest had some technical difficulties when trying to answer a question because she couldn't answer the questions at the bottom of the screen.  The screen wouldn't scroll down and the maximize button wouldn't work either.

For my family, this curriculum is not a good fit.  But I encourage families to check it out anyway because it may just be what you are looking for and a great fit for your children.
