I subscribed to Time4Learning for Beth and Matt, and so far we are really enjoying it. I've had a really hard time homeschooling with two year old Katy, and this is helping a lot. It really frees up some of time to play with her, and also to work with the other kids one-on-one. I am using Oak Meadow as more core in most subjects, but I think I am going to use Time4Learning as our entire math program, as well as review and extra practice in other areas.

So far they have done math lessons and vocabulary lessons and they did very well. Both of them learned place value in math, which was something I was having trouble teaching on paper, without any issues.

The computer has kept me sane many times, too! We use IXL for math, and I like how it gives me either a little free time or a little time with just Daniel.

We use Teaching Textbooks for math for three of my kids (and once Adrian has gone through Calvert 2nd grade math, he will use it, too). Outsourcing some things to the computer is a lifesaver for teaching a bunch of kids.

I use T4L with DD. I love it for her Math and Reading. It really does help free up some time during the day for the other kids. Plus she loves it and it has REALLY made a positive difference in her reading skills.

We use time4Learning, ReadingEggs (this taught my autistic son to read when nothing else worked and has been working magic on my DD as well), and Dreambox. I tend to have 1 kid working one on one with me while the others do their computer lessons. Sometimes, though, I bring them all together to teach them a concept together.
Thank you Jaidynsmum for the beautiful siggy!
