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!
