Getting ready to try Time4Learning.

Each student gets their own password.

We tried out the Language Arts portion of Time4Learning today to see what we think of the program.  It was simple to set up each boys’ grade level and assignments.  I sat with the kids as they worked through their first lessons on synonyms.  Both listened to the lessons and took a quiz which made sure that they had comprehended the meanings of the words presented.  The vocabulary seemed age appropriate and I liked the repetition used to help in retaining the information.  Both boys said that the graphics seemed a little childish and some parts were “too long”.  They just wanted to do the lesson and be finished.  However,  since Brendan and Ryan tend to rush through their work, I think it was a good lesson on being patient and staying focused.  I believe that Time4Learning uses the humor and cartoons in an effort to make learning fun and I have a feeling that this will decrease as they move up through each grade level.  I appreciate the fact that the company tries to make the lessons enjoyable.  We’re going to keep plugging away!
