I have been homeschooling for almost 5 years now. This year I wanted to add a new dimension to our eclectic curriculum and I came across Time 4 Learning. I recently emailed T4L and asked them if we could review their product, and they said yes but wanted us to disclose beforehand that we are getting one month free in exchange for our honest review. Specifically, Time4Learning asked me to provide the following information:
I’ve been invited to try Time4Learning for one month in exchange for a candid review. Time4Learning can be used for homeschool, afterschool and summer skill sharpening. Be sure to come back and read about my experience.
We no longer use time4 learning and I plan on posting my full review here very soon.

I have owned several different brands of USB Flash drives in the past. Without question, the Sandisk drives have always been the most reliable and durable. The problem with other brands is they would begin to fail after excessive reading and writing, and/or the USB plug would become damaged from packing them around on my keys, or in my pocket. The caps on the other brands I have owned were always falling off exposing the USB plug to dust and other damage. This isn’t a problem with the Sandisk Cruzer Drives because their USB ports easily retract inside their own casing.
I home school my children so we always have an abundance of craft supplies, crayons, and markers lying around our house. However we have one very common scenario : When our 7 year old goes to get his favorite marker we find out that the 4 year old has forgotten to put the cap back on! And, we all know what that means, a useless dried out marker! We’ve thrown tons of markers in the garbage over this. So, when we heard about the Cap Trapper we were excited to learn more about it.
