I’m PROUD to partner with Time4Learning. However, Time4Learning did not pay for this post. All opinions of any curriculum are always mine, but I wanted you to know that I’m proud to have Time4Learning as a sponsor.
In the past 10 years, it seems like online homeschool curriculum has popped up and taken over the homeschool market.
We’ve never had so many choices in choosing online homeschool curriculum as we do now.
When I chose to use Time4Learning, I had a lens through which I chose online curriculum and it worked.
ONLINE HOMESCHOOL CURRICULUM THAT ROCKS
Sharing 3 ways to choose the best online homeschool curriculum, I want you to look past all the blinking beacons on websites and look at these tried and true tips.
One/ Flexibility. Don’t underestimate the value of it.
One of the reasons I started homeschooling was to decide when and how my kids would learn.
During my homeschool journey, I’ve experienced many exhilarating planned adventures like living overseas in South America and trekking the Amazon Rain Forest and many unplanned sad and stressful times like time spent in the ICU as my husband recovered.
I needed laid out lesson plans and I needed a variety of grade levels to choose from. It’s why I chose Time4Learning.
I don’t want to have to check in with a teacher like an online school.
I simply did not need the stress of answering to the schedule of another person.
Second/ Curriculum on the go.
Until I moved overseas, I didn’t appreciate the value of curriculum on the go.
When I learned that we could take only two suitcases each for our move overseas, I almost passed out.
My shoes (ha) wouldn’t fit in two suitcases let alone our homeschooling books.
Oh sure. We could have paid thousands of dollars to ship my physical curriculum or I could look for a PreK to 12th grade curriculum to cover multiple grades. That’s another reason I love Time4Learning.
You simply sign up and sign in each day and follow a routine set up for you.
Third/ Know the difference between choosing online curriculum and an online school.
When you first start homeschooling, you may think you want an online school.
Soon, you realize that it’s just public school at home. Look at my tips The Great Homeschool Hoax – Public School At Home.
You move to another phase of your journey, the one you stay at longer and learn then what you really need is curriculum help and not an online school.
For me, what I really wanted was NOT another school telling me what to do, but homeschool curriculum laid out in an easy way for me to use.
That is one BIG reason I love, love Time4Learning. It’s not a school but curriculum.
It’s not like those online schools designed to stress you out because they want your kids to test, meet with you in a parent/teacher conference, and dictate what my kids should learn.
I’ll decide if I need that for my kids since I’m the one with them each day.
There are many online schools, but not many all online homeschool curriculum providers for Prek to 12th grade that have been around for a long time and understand homeschoolers. Because Time4Learning is not public school at home, it’s not offered to public schools.
It’s just what it says, online homeschool curriculum that does not bring public school to home just because you chose online homeschool curriculum, but supports you when you need help.
You’ll love how easy Time4Learning makes it for you to teach and guess what?
