Time4Learning Online Curriculum Review 4th and 5th Grades
We have been trying to find a curriculum plan that works for our classroom to use next year. This year we did a lot of paper and books but nothing seemed to click for both my kids so I thought I would venture online to see if I could supplement our classroom education and possibly find a routine that will help us reach our goals next year. I was able to test out Time4Learning.com for a month to see if that would be the fit we have been looking for.
The games and videos help keep some kids engaged and wanting to do their school work.
It’s easy to log into and navigating to most assignments is quick.
You can create a lesson plan with a couple of clicks that will help keep a timeline of what needs to be learned first.
There are several reports to help you gauge where the student is and what they may need help with.
The math and language arts sections are comprehensive and very enjoyable.
The games and videos may turn some kids off (my daughter) and cause them frustration.
Some assignments like tests and quizzes are harder to find, it took us a little while to get used to tracking them down.
The lessons in subjects like social studies are hard to follow, the kids became bored and resistant to do them. We switched back to our offline work for Social Studies.
Finding the perfect curriculum for both children is something that has been very hard for us. My daughter is gifted but becomes frustrated easily while my son is more laid back and prone to distraction. My son really enjoyed the Time4Learning site. He liked learning by playing games and the videos interested him to continue. My daughter on the other hand wanted more of a straight forward learning layout. The search may still be on for us but I would suggest giving Time4Learning a trial drive. If you are looking for a well rounded and entertaining online curriculum built to engage the child while educating them, it may be the perfect solution for you.
