What Do
Parents Say?

The Time4learning program is a great way to keep your child interested in learning, and it is especially great for kids who learn best through visual learning.
My daughter is really benefiting from using the Time4learning program, and it is great to see a program that helps keep her interested in learning!
Time4Learning not only offers a fun way for children to complete their school work, but they also keep records for parents to use if they have to report their child's progress.

What is Time4Learning, exactly?

Time4Learning is an online education program for preschool to eighth grade that provides standards-based curriculum using multimedia lessons with a sense of humor. An entire year's worth of lessons are presented within an easy to use online learning system that teaches & grades the material, tracks student progress and keeps printable reports for easy record keeping.

Time4Learning feels more like video games than learning exercises, making it ideal for skill sharpening, summer review, and presenting new or difficult concepts. Kids genuinely enjoy the funny sound effects and the quirky cartoon characters delivering the material. Plus, the student-paced nature of the program gives them a feeling of independence and sense of ownership over their progress, which is a great motivator. See more program features here.

Can I use Time4Learning as my summer school program?

There are several reasons that parents turn to Time4Learning in the summer:

  1. For academic skill maintenance - While students relax in the summer, hard earned academic skills can be lost. Time4Learning is a fun way to maintain skills in language arts and math enabling a stronger start in the next school year.
  2. For review of the previous year’s school year - Many students are told that their skills in one or more subject areas did not develop as suggested during the school year. Time4Learning provides a method to repeat the curriculum. Time4Learning’s curriculum is standards based and often follows the same sequence as used the public school system.
  3. For preparation of the upcoming school year - Many students are anxious about the upcoming school year. Some of have learned that to keep up with the class for them is stressful and so they prefer to have a head start. With Time4Learning, students can get a first look and build familiarity with the next year’s materials.
  4. For credit recovery / summer school alternative - Note: Time4Learning is not a school and therefore not accredited. However, our curriculum is used in public schools nationwide as an in-school teaching tool (under the name CompassLearning). If you have been told that your students needs to go to summer school or needs credit recovery, you can show your local administrator the Time4Learning lesson plans and report format to see if a parent-supervised use of Time4Learning is acceptable. Time4Learning’s reporting system provides progress reports with records of activities completed, scores on graded activities and a time stamping feature that records the hours of study completed by day. With pre-authorization, it is possible that Time4Learning - with proper supervision - could be approved by school authorities as a viable substitute.
  5. To maintain academic enthusiasm - After working on the same learning schedule all year, parents often switch curriculum in the summer months to help keep things fresh. Time4Learning gives parents the chance to try a tool that, to the kids, feels like a novelty. That helps to keep students engaged during the summer.

Would it be beneficial to start now while my child is still in school?

Yes. Many parents register before school has ended so that they can familiarize themselves with the features and functionalities of the program.

Time4Learning has also proven to be a great, cost effective substitute to after school tutoring. Students can use the system as much or as little as they want and can focus on one subject or work equally on all of them. All material is in a recommended order, which follows a sequence similar to that which is typically followed in public schools.

Which grade level should I sign up for in the summer?

Does your child have different achievement levels in different subjects? No problem! With Time4Learning, you can set each subject at any grade level. Plus, members automatically receive access to each subject's curriculum in the grade above and below!

When determining subject grade levels, here are a few tips:

  • If the student is using Time4Learning as a review, we suggest placing them in the grade level they just completed.
  • If the student is using it to prepare for the upcoming school year, we suggest placing them in the grade level they will be entering.
  • If the student is using it to satisfy summer school requirements, we suggest showing our lesson plans to the local school authorities to determine an appropriate point and agenda for your child.
  • Don't worry. Time4Learning allows students to switch grades easily. Additionally, they are given access to the grade above and the grade below each subject, so they can advance or review if they need to.

Keep in mind that students can be in different grade levels for different subjects. So, try and sign up at a level the student is comfortable working at. You can always adjust it, later.

Can I hone in on specific subject areas or topics of study?

Activity finder tool for parents

Yes. The lesson activity finder is one of the many helpful tools that Time4Learning offers its members. For summer learning, the activity finder makes it easy for parents to preview lessons, find extra practice for their child or hone in on a specific area of study.

Every lesson in the curriculum has a unique activity number, referred to in the lesson plans as an "LA Number." These numbers can be found on either the scope and sequence pages or the lesson plans in the parent administration area.

The activity finder can be found in the lower left hand corner of the Student LaunchPad page. To use it, members simply log in to their child's account, type the Learning Activity (LA) number of a lesson into the Activity Finder and click "Go" to open it.

For additional information, please visit our hints and help section, which gives more details about the activity finder.
