Using Time4Learning’s Middle School Language Arts Curriculum
Our middle school math curriculum can be used as a main homeschool program or to supplement other curricula or school. Time4Learning’s adaptable program allows students to work across grade levels. For example, if your student is “at-level” in language arts but ahead in math, they could use the eighth-grade language arts curriculum and the suggested ninth-grade math curriculum.
If your middle schooler is struggling to prepare for high school math, Time4Learning’s curriculum can be used as a supplement to get back on track. You can use our math lesson plans to locate specific topics that your student needs to review. Additionally, our automated grading and recordkeeping system saves you time and helps you easily keep track of your child’s progress.
