    Question Question(s) about weekly activity planner. A little confused and need help

    Hi, today is day one of me trying to figure out how to schedule my child's daily/weekly activities. I am using the "detailed plan" layout. The first subject listed is Social Studies but it lists 59 activities for just one week. That seems like a lot! Are the kids actually expected to complete all 59 activities in one week or are we supposed to select specific activities from the list that we want them to complete in one week? Help! I'm trying to get this squared away today. Thx!

    Nevermind! I figured it out. I should have entered the start and end date for the detailed plan for the entire school year and not just the first quarter (2 mos).

    The Weekly Activity Planner was a HUGE help.. We added Language (Spanish) and wondered if there was a planner for that as well.
    I am still learning so much about homeschooling and Time4Learning was a big help!

    Hi, Kathryn. The foreign language course is really unique. It's powered by Rosetta Stone, which is pretty much recognized as "the" go-to language course.

    It's formatted in such a way that scheduling certain lessons would be impossible. I suggest you devote a certain amount of time to the foreign language lessons each day. The lessons adjust themselves to the student's ability, so the experience will be completely different for each child (once they get going and the program "learns" about them).

    One student might already know some of the basic vocabulary and the program will stop offering those basic words and move ahead to more advance stuff. Another might take quite a lot of practice before they master new vocabulary, so they will practice the same words for several days. The program will detect when they know the words and will gradually add more words (along with reviewing the older words regularly).

    My kids have done great with half an hour of Rosetta Stone each day, and they're all in a different place in the curriculum.

    Hope this helps!

    Mom of six . . . current students and homeschool graduates. Enjoying using Time4Learning since 2006!
