We've tried Time4Learning.com in the past - we cancelled it when it didn't get enough use. I'd consider trying that again if it's considered the best. Part of the reason it wasn't used was busy life at the time.
Thank you all for the ideas! We are homeschooling now (started the kids officially in August) & I'm looking ahead to the colder months thinking it might help to have some additional helps in my toolbox.
We also have ixl, which is a math program. While it isn't fancy, it is nice for doing assessment- Once the children have covered an area, we log onto ixl and have them do the problems there to see if they transfer learning and see what their understanding of the content was.
We love brainpopjr and use it several times a week.
Thanks for these resources ladies! I was on the verge of enrolling DD in school today and I completely forgot about online lessons! That's why you can't make decisions emotionally....
dreambox is totally awesome and worth every $$$...Just resist the urge to help, tell your kiddo to guess if he/she is totally stuck or the lessons will get to hard to quickly. Also don't let him/her leave a game unfinished for the same reason.
We also really got a lot out of headsprout.
i see a lot of people talking about enchanted learning and kid soup websites....each is only a few dollars and full of good info
