Homeschooling in Nevada

We've lived in NV for two years now. Before that we lived in Southern California, where I was born and raised. I like to say that I was "partially" homeschooled because I was sick a lot of my childhood and my mother had to keep me home from school a good portion of the year. She would get my homework from school and supplement that work with books she would get from the library or school stores near our house. If she had known about homeschooling when I was a kid, I never would have gone to school, which of course is one of the many reasons I decided to homeschool long before I ever had children.

The basic requirements for homeschooling in Nevada changed just after we moved to Las Vegas in 2007. Luckily, they changed for the better. All you have to do is fill out an "Intent to Homeschool" form, print out a basic course of study, and then mail it to your district. This is only done ONCE for each child. The only time this needs to be done again is if something changes, such as you move, the child goes back to a "traditional" school and then withdraws again, or something along those lines.

Time4Learning is vibrant, engaging, educational, and funny. It sure beats our previous homeschool curriculum which was textbook/workbook based.

Time4Learning is so effective that very little intervention is required. This works great if you're homeschooling multiple children.

Homeschool Laws in Nevada

Coming from California, where homeschooling is mostly just "tolerated", homeschooling in Nevada is wonderful. There is now a law in place in the educational code that specifically allows parents to homeschool. Plus, you are also allowed to enroll your child into any class in any public school as long as there is room. This basically means that your child can participate in band, sports, art, or any other classes you may need help with or want them to join. So far, I am extremely impressed with the Nevada homeschooling community and how the entire state treats us!

A Typical Day in Our Homeschool

You might wonder what an average day in our homeschool looks like. A typical day in our homeschooling family starts when the boys wake up at around 8:00 a.m. We go over what they need to get done and what they'd like to accomplish for the day, and set about figuring out what their time schedule is. Sometimes we have more pressing things that need to get done or plans for an outing so we work the schoolwork around those things.

My oldest son tends to get his schoolwork done much faster than my younger son and is generally done with all of his work by noon. After lunch, the boys have a little "free" time to watch some TV, play video games, or whatever they like. Then it's back to work around 1:00 p.m. If there is anything that my oldest son has left to do then he finishes it up, if not, he has some choices. He can read a book that I've assigned to him, work on some extracurricular lessons such as piano, typing, Flash, or sometimes he's allowed some free time online.

My youngest will continue to do his schoolwork until 3:00 p.m. After all their schoolwork is done, they are allowed to go to the park on their bikes or do whatever they like until dinner time. They are both old enough to be allowed to work independently and they are both very good about coming to me when they need help and when they are done with their work.

I couldn't believe that my child was able to take charge and do the program alone! The software is so user friendly and I really do love it!

Choosing Homeschool Curriculum

Time4Learning's experience shows that there is no single, best homeschool material. Rather than feeling torn between homeschool resources, parents should select a diverse blend of materials and activities.

For families with more than one child, choosing a homeschool program can be more problematic. What works for one child may not work for another. What works for one subject may not work on the next. What works one year, may fall flat the very next year.

Some of the features that make Time4Learning so successful include:

  • Time4Learning appeals to a wide range of learning styles. Our online learning materials are especially well-suited to children who are visual or kinesthetic learners. These children can take advantage of Time4Learning's interactive, multi-media materials.
  • Children like using the computer to learn. It's a convenient, interactive homeschool resource that provides a welcome change each day to paper-and-pencil workbooks and textbook-based lessons.
  • Parents like that it tracks progress and helps children advance by clearly presenting and reinforcing each lesson.
  • Time4Learning's self-paced, modularized lesson plans allow you to move forward and back through the materials whenever you want. You can skip lessons that teach concepts your child has already mastered and repeat those he or she has not. The choice is yours. With Time4Learning, you are always in control.

Time4Learning is proven effective with homeschoolers, has a low monthly price, is easy-to-use, and provides a money-back guarantee so you can make sure that it works for your children!
