    Hi, I have a second grader who I've been told is very smart, and brimming with personality. We switched schools during the second semester and this teacher says she has low self-esteem & refuses to try. She's switched schools before with no problems. I asked my daughter and she said the work was boring. For her, that's just cover for not understanding it. I tried breeching the subject with her teacher and was cut off and quickly told that class was not boring, my child needs medication to focus and she requires too much time. I'm frustrated. My child has always learned differently but she's smart and has consistently won awards for perseverance. My husband and I feel that homeschooling is right, but are completely at a loss on how to start. We live in North Carolina. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Oh I just saw the message you left for me. I should check my profile more often to see messages. I am not very good at the forum thing, but learning. Thanks, its really good to be back. No you are not the only family to call it Grass Pants. That is really really funny! (chuckling) Thanks for the warm welcome back. The kids sure are glad to be back, already in Math and Science. I love that!

    Hi Kelly,

    I sent you a message yesterday. Just checking to see if you received it. I needed a little help with answering a question on my forum about 1st grade lesson plans.

Time4Learning Preschool

by hearthstone_academy on 08-27-2014 at 07:04 PM

Preschool is more than presenting a lesson one time and checking it off as "Done". Preschoolers need a lot of repetition, immediate feedback, opportunities to self-correct, and plenty of hands-on experiences. That's why Time4Learning's preschool program provides:

  • non-graded parent reports that detail how many times a student has completed each activity.
  • unlimited access to explore each activity again and again.
  • immediate lesson feedback

Lesson Scheduling Made Easier!

by hearthstone_academy on 03-27-2012 at 05:33 PM
The friendly, flashing arrow that guides Time4Learning students on their lesson path is a fun and useful part of the program. The arrow can't determine whether a worksheet has been completed, though. And, while it does an excellent job of showing what comes next, it doesn't tell how much to do.

Enter the new Time4Learning activity scheduler! When you log in to your parent account, you will notice a new icon at the bottom of the page. Click on the Activity

Grammar Goodies

by hearthstone_academy on 04-11-2011 at 08:46 AM
Time4Learning's core language arts program is one of the most popular parts of the curriculum. By interacting with hilarious animated characters, students study vocabulary, reading comprehension, and more.

But, where are the grammar lessons? When parents ask this, they are usually referring to a study of parts of speech and punctuation. Where, in the Time4Learning program, do students learn about nouns, verbs, adjectives, periods, commas, and quotation marks?

How Do I Manage a U.S. States Study Unit?

by hearthstone_academy on 04-04-2011 at 12:31 PM
Several states require a state study as part of a homeschooler's curriculum. A few, including Kansas, Maine, Michigan, North Dakota, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Vermont, specify that the focus should be on the student's state.

One way to provide this is to purchase a "state study" workbook. These typically devote one or two pages to each state. They usually begin with a list of the state's capital, state bird, state flower, state motto,
