Time4Learning Part 1

One of the things we've been asked to review is a website called Time4Learning. I must admit, this one has me pretty excited. It is an online curriculum supplement full of lots of fun games and activities that teach different educational concepts.
So far, the kids' reactions have been very positive, with TJ enjoying it the most. Although it starts with Pre-K, it was a little beyond Sari's ability to work independently, and independent activities are what I need most for her right now. It goes up to 8th grade, and I have requested Sari's grade level to be set to 8th so I can play on it too.
Time4Learning offers a trial period of 14 days, during which you can get your monthly fee back if you don't like it, so you really have nothing to lose.
They bill themselves as being a full Language Arts and Math curriculum, but I am most excited about it being a place where the kids can practice and learn new skills while I am working with one of their siblings. They also offer science and social studies, and Scott tends to like science the best.
One area of potential concern is that several other reviews have mentioned that the site contains evolutionary content and some crude/irreverent humor. I have not heard or seen any of that myself, but look for that update in my next installment...
Pin It!

We have tried this a couple of times. Little one really liked it. But he does really well at everything he does. Older one liked it for a while, and then got bored. I also couldn't continue to justify paying for it every month if it was still going to be a fight to get him to do it.
