Homeschooling in Nebraska
Many moms feel very fortunate to homeschool in Nebraska. Nebraska is a very easy state when it comes to homeschooling. There isn’t any mandatory testing and, for the most part, homeschooling is very well known of and accepted. While there may not be an overwhelming amount of resources for homeschoolers in the rural parts of Nebraska, there are seemingly unlimited resources around Lincoln and Omaha. Children can often enjoy homeschool P.E. classes, art classes, playgroups, field trips, and more. Many local businesses also offer homeschool discounts, just like teachers might receive.
I LOVE Time4Learning! It holds the attention of my kids, plus I can keep track of their learning without hovering over their shoulders.
I am really pleased with Time4Learning. It has made a world of difference in my son's academic performance in school!
A Typical Homeschool Day
While many homeschooling schedules and styles vary, here is an example of what may be a “typical” day in a homeschool.
When everyone is up in the morning, your children may start with a pre-recorded episode of “The Magic School Bus” while you make breakfast. After breakfast, perhaps around 8:30, your son might work on handwriting and math, while your daughter does about an hour of Time4learning. After that, your son will get on the computer for his Time4Learning. Perhaps he loves that he can switch from one subject to the next and gets very excited each time he completes a subject. While your son does his Time4learning, you may decide to work with your daughter on her reading and handwriting.
After your morning of studies, you probably have classes or activities in the afternoons. Your children might even attend one-hour P.E. classes twice a week, as well as being involved in sports and dance classes.
It's amazing how quickly my kids are learning difficult concepts on the Time4Learning curriculum. The animation really helps them apply the lessons to something tangible!
As part of fourth grade language arts, students are asked to identify the suffix of a word.
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 curriculum 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!
