I’ve seen the ABCmouse.com advertisements for months and months, and I’ve always wanted to check it out. Emma is an absolute computer whiz (well, for 5 years old, anyway!) and I really wanted to see how it stood apart from the children’s cable channel websites that she frequented.
I was not disappointed!
ABCmouse.com is for children ages 2-6, so it was perfect for our family — Emma (5) and Micah (3) would both get great use out of it now and in the future! There are over 450 lessons and 3000 learning activities for your child to do! With six different levels, ABCmouse.com truly grows with your child. Each of the six levels has four subjects: Reading, Math, World Around Us, and Art & Colors. Once your child completes a lesson, they are rewarded with a system of tickets and prizes. I am always hearing Emma yell out, “I GOT MORE TICKETS, MOM!!”
The major difference between other children’s sites and ABCmouse.com is a “pre-planned series of lessons”, the Step-by-Step Learning Path. Your child has structured curriculum that will change as they grow, and the next level will reinforce what the previous level taught. Smart!
The Classroom is the jumping off point, and it’s organized in a really kid-friendly way. Whenever you hover over an object, ABCmouse.com reads the object’s name aloud, so even kids who can’t read yet can find their way all on their own! By clicking the white board, you can navigate to the Learning Path that I mentioned above. Alternatively, you can choose any number of other activities to do — and your child can do an activity as many times as they’d like!
Here, your child can see how many tickets they have, check out their rooms (where they can place their rewards), spend their earned tickets, and keep tabs on your overall progress. I love that your child can design their own avatar, as well!
Parent Progress Checker
I love that I can check in on Emma’s progress and see how she’s coming along. On the green right hand sidebar, there’s a list of options that you can utilize to make a custom learning plan for your kids, or make simple changes to your account. You can also use this section to add another child to the account, each with their own Step-By-Step Learning Path.
Emma is over the moon with ABCmouse.com, and I love the site and everything it has to offer. I created an account for Micah today, and I can’t wait to let him give it a spin! I feel better about them using ABCmouse.com as opposed to websites that are more focused on character and television show branding than education.
