Hello.  We've been using time4learning for a few years and we love it!  Now we'd like to try time4writing, but wanted to get some input from others who are using it or have used it.

Thank you!

Welcome again Janet!

We never used that program here. I have the kids use copy work witing pages to learn the mechanics of wirting (elementary age) . Then I have them all learn some simple keyboard skills, that helps tons. Then for writing free form I use my own invented program based mostly on Questions I ask them to research and then anwser....first one word, then one sentence, a paragrah, a page or two, as they are ready to do such work. Good Luck, many others here have used varies curicula with differing resuts, yet hardy any one gives up on there kid or finding the way that works for there inividual learner...the greatest gift of home schooling. It seems most the districts of public and private is do it there way or fail out on the cold hard highway... of it is your fault not ours, if one curiula path does not work!  Best of luck!
