Parents and students new to Time4Learning are sometimes frustrated when the program appears to expect their child to know everything about a certain concept without providing any instruction.

This is because Time4Learning doesn't just present a concept one time. It reviews previously learned material from time to time, to assure the student is retaining it (and to help you make sure your student has a chance to learn it in the first place if you are new to Time4Learning).

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:

  • unlimited access to explore each activity again and again.
  • immediate lesson feedback

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?
