    Jennifer, thanks for all these tremendous links! I'm particularly interested in checking out the Victoria Theater link as I'm trying to awaken a passion for the theater in my younger students

    We saw several plays at the Victoria Theater last year that were really wonderful, and a great first-time-at-a-theater experience for the young ones. This December we have tickets to see "A Christmas Carol" there, and we're really looking forward to it!

    hi to all of you buckeyes. i just started using T4L for my 11 years old daughter and we both just love it. Last year our Christian School closed for lack of money. So we tried public school, my daughter was there for 2 months and it was just a terrible. she never had homework and they were not allowed to bring home any school books, fear that the students would lose them. I had no idea what she was being taught. She would come home asking me what certain words meant, words i cannot repeat if you know what i mean. so i pull her out and started homeschooling her. i was scared to death. Finally, i found T4L and feel that she is getting what she needs. i love this program. i was wondering if there was a way i could print the completed quizzes and tests for my records?

    Thanks in advance
    Rose

    Hello Rose -
    We're glad to have you aboard! There's so much flexibility with T4L that you can tailor your daughter's studies to exactly what she needs, and that can be difficult in a traditional school setting. But it sounds like you've already discovered that!

    To answer your question, you can't print the lessons or quizzes & tests, but if you'd like a hard copy of your daughter's progress to keep for your own records, you can do that easily. When your daughter logs in, a page opens up called "Student Launch Pad". Click on the picture of a backpack that says "My Portfolio" and it will give you lots of options for what records to print.

    If you need more help, just give me a holler. Welcome!
