Middle School Math
In middle school, the math levels move forward quickly, so children without sound foundational skills can get lost and need remedial help. Time4Learning allows parents to place children independently within our curriculum to ensure that each student is working at his or her optimal level. It is not unusual for a student to be working at an eighth grade language arts level and a seventh grade math level, for instance. The middle school math lesson plans are organized by skills. Each lesson focuses on a skill, first introducing it using an animated or illustrated lesson designed to interest middle school students. Students then work their way through interactive exercises to learn the skill, use printable worksheets for reinforcement, and finally are tested with unit quizzes to assess their mastery of the material. Middle school lesson plans are simple with Time4Learning!
Time4Learning’s middle school math curriculum includes:
- Middle School Number Sense
- Middle School Algebra
- Middle School Geometry and Spatial Reasoning
- Middle School Measurement
- Middle School Data Analysis and Probability

Middle School Language Arts
The middle school language arts program teaches advanced reading comprehension, literary analysis, critical thinking, vocabulary, grammar and punctuation, and writing skills.
In the middle school literary analysis strand, students perform a variety of activities before, during and after reading, and learn to identify genre, voice, point of view, mood and use of various literary techniques such as flashbacks and foreshadowing.
In middle school reading comprehension, students will distinguish between fact and opinion, cause and effect, fantasy and reality, as well as learn to identify the main idea of a passage. Students will paraphrase and summarize in order to enhance comprehension.
In the middle school grammar and punctuation strand, students learn more sophisticated elements of sentence structure, dependent and independent clauses, and work with parts of speech, including action, helping, transitive and intransitive verbs, adverbs and adjectives, and conjunctions.
Middle school writing is developed through extensive composition work that is closely tied to the other skills being taught in middle school language arts.
In the middle school critical thinking strand, students are challenged to think critically as they analyze propaganda techniques and advertising messages, learn to distinguish fact from opinion and work with metaphors, similes and analogies.
Time4Learning solves so many problems and simplifies so many things, it's hard to know where to start! I guess the most important thing is that it's given my kids the help they need to do well in school.
