Time 4 Learning

Time 4 Learning is a convenient online homeschool curriculum that combines education with online interactive fun. They provide lessons for preschool age thru eighth grade using a combination of animated lessons, activities, worksheets, and quizes or tests. Some people use Time 4 Learning for their complete homeschool curriculum but we have been using it as an enrichment to the curriculum we already use.

We have been using the preschool, kindergarten, and first grade levels that include subjects such as language arts, math, and science. The only drawback I have seen with Time 4 Learning is the monthly fee for students. With 2 children who love every minute of their time spent on the site, it does add up. However, we have justified the cost and added it as one of our homeschool expenses based purely on the fact that they are learning, they are enjoying it, and they are learning computer skills in the process. They do provide discounts for additional students in a family.

We have been very please with Time 4 Learning. For those who are interested, we did find out that the public school system uses a program from the same company designed for classroom use, and that the materials are aligned with our state requirements.

Right now Time 4 Learning is providing a 14 day money back guarantee. So I suggest everyone with homeschoolers try it and see how it works with your family, and if you are anything like us-you will find a way to add it into your schedule and budget!

Time4Learning is an online education program that can be used as a homeschooling curriculum, an afterschool tutorial or for summer learning. As a member, I've been given the opportunity to share my experiences. The content in this review was not written by Time4Learning. While I was compensated, the opinion is entirely my own.

Finally! The Bar Stool......

These have been finished for a long while now. My life got crazy busy and I just have not had time to do any crafty projects or posting. I am ready to jump back in and get my hands dirty now!

After adding the workboxes to our dining room for homeschooling, I no longer had room for all 3 I had made, so I now have 1 unfinished bar stool in our basement. Im a little disapointed in that, but alas the kids eduction comes first!

So, I know we have been waiting FOREVER on these! Hope you like them!

My computer is being weird! So, everybody turn your head completely to the side!

I got the pattern from Ana White. I have talked about her site a while ago. It is amazing! It is full of inspiration and will make a wood worker out of anybody. I started with a doll bed for a Christmas gift and this was my second project.

Coming soon....a headboard I made from cabinet doors!
