    Default Other Charged courses besides time4writing?

    I'd like to learn about other courses that will have an additional charge attached in order for me to budget them in. I already know about the time4writing program and the $99.00 charge. Are there any others i need to consider for my budget.

    whoa!! its a dad!!!! you are a rare beast around here altho, to be honest, my hubby and i chat from our laptops together either from our bed or our couch so he's usually next to me when we're on here and he either reads along with me or gets to hear half of what i'm reading anyway!

    as far as i know, the only additional charge is the time4writing, with THIS curriculum. but of course, if you go exploring into other things, there could be associated costs with whatever you're looking at on another, unrelated site. let us know if you need anything and welcome to the group!

    Hi, Daisy! Time4Writing is absolutely optional. It's actually a separate course. Most Time4Writing users are not Time4Learning users . . . although many Time4Learning users take a Time4Writing course or two.

    Time4Learning includes writing instruction . . . quite a bit of it, in fact. Parents do need to evaluate their student's writing since, of course, a computer can't do that. Some parents aren't comfortable evaluating the writing, or they want a second opinion. Their students often take Time4Writing courses on occasion.

    Time4Writing includes courses for third grade through high school.

    lol daisy, that could get very confusing!!! but welcome and let us know how else we can help you.

    as a reference, i don't use time4writing personally because i'm kind of an english nut and have done really well evaluating the kids' papers thus far. but, in the cases where i do have a question about the curve i'm learning on, my best friend is their evaluator (she's a 2nd grade teacher) and she lets me know whether or not they're on track.

    all that being said, i've heard the time4writing is a great course!!

    Jess, I'm an "English nut", too, and I have always felt very comfortable evaluating my kids' work. When we took some Time4Writing courses, I found it interesting, though, that my KIDS valued the teacher's comments so highly! The first thing they wanted to do each morning was to check and see what kind of comments she had left on their work.

    I also found that I was probably being a little too critical of my teenage son's work. Because I'm a writer myself, I almost expected perfection from him. The Time4Writing teacher told me she was very impressed with his writing, so it was nice having that second opinion. I'm not quite as hard on him now!
