Time4Learning recognizes that gifted children need academic work which challenges their abilities.
A gifted child needs access to stimulating materials. Students without enough of a challenge can fail to develop to their full potential and suffer from boredom. Often, the boredom can develop into behavioral problems.
Time4Learning provides a curriculum that includes over a thousand multimedia lessons, so kids enjoy completing the exercises. In addition, students have access to a level above and below their current grade, so if they want to move ahead in Algebra but not in Language Arts, (which is common among gifted students) they have the flexibility to challenge themselves. We also offer our members the option to add Foreign Language learning to their curriculum, which can broaden their overall educational experience.
A Gifted Child Should Enjoy Learning
Compass Learning provides Time4Learning’s online interactive curriculum for preschool, elementary, and middle school including algebra. These courses are automated, with each child receiving a personal login where the next lesson is always ready, the online lessons are interactive, and multimedia learning exercises with printable worksheets and tests follow each unit. These programs serve students primarily through acceleration.
Children like using the computer to learn. Time4Learning’s curricula engage and challenge students and let them work as intensely as they wish.
The Time4Learning Program Structure
Time4Learning has been refined through years of feedback from educators, parents, and students. Subjects are organized into chapters composed of interactive lessons, printable worksheets, quizzes and tests. Students are guided through the activities at their own pace by an automated system.
When students log in, they choose a subject, select a chapter, pick a lesson and complete the activities. A bright green arrow tells them where they left off, and completed work is clearly labeled with a check-mark or a gold star. Visual and auditory prompts guide students through the lessons making them easy for young learners to follow, and an online playground (controlled by parents) rewards and motivates them to finish their lessons.
Parents get access to printable lesson plans, teaching tools, detailed reporting and parental support through our online Parent Forum.
Gifted children often have different achievement levels for math and language arts. For Time4Learning, this is no problem. Our program lets you set each individual subject at the appropriate graded level, making this program great for gifted students.
