    Default Supplements used with T4L?

    I have a kindergartner moving at a very fast pace. T4L does not seem to be enough for her. What supplements are other parents using to fill in the gaps that T4L does not cover?

    I'm not sure what other parents use to supplement, but I know we read extra books, played games, did crafts together, played with Legos, put puzzles together, etc. With my kindergartener last year, we didn't supplement with extra curriculum, but extra learning opportunities. Does that help at all?

    Rick,

    I did want to mention that there is a forum for Supplemental Resources that I think you might find helpful. There's a few set-up for different age groups. I've linked you to the Pre-k to 2nd grade forum.

    Thanks again Nicole. My daughter was progressing very fast, so I ordered the Timberdoodle curriculum to supplement where I saw gaps in T4L. In the mornings she starts off by doing a worksheet and or paper activity, and she earns computer time on T4L upon completion. I found if she earns T4L she looks at it as fun and not work, even though she is actually learning and doing work!
