No you are not the only family to call it Grass Pants. That is really really funny! (chuckling) Thanks for the warm welcome back. The kids sure are glad to be back, already in Math and Science. I love that!

    Hi Kelly, just stopping by to officially introduce ourselves this year. We were T4L ers last year too, but was not very active in forums. Hope we are this year. We live in Grants Pass and hope to get together with other Grants Pass homeschool families.
    Good to be back.
    Brandi, Tyler and Nathon

    Hi Kelly,

    I sent you a message yesterday. Just checking to see if you received it. I needed a little help with answering a question on my forum about 1st grade lesson plans.

    Hi, I am Nita from WV. I just had a question. I clicked on a link to the time4learning parent map and it only took me back to the posts in the community forum. How can I get to the map? Thanks

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 08:04 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:

Lesson Scheduling Made Easier!

by hearthstone_academy on 03-27-2012 at 06:33 PM
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 09:46 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?
