ABCMouse.com Review plus Giveaway

Press Sample

As the homeschooling mom of a 4yo and a 5yo, with a new baby on the horizon in the house, I need trustworthy products that I can allow my children to use while I tend to the new baby. After quite a bit of research, I thought ABCMouse.com ABCMousewould be a perfect fit and was thrilled when I received the opportunity to review the learning website.

ABCMouse.com has six academic levels on which their step-by-step learning path presents curriculum (in over 450 lessons) that is engaging, fun, and educational.  As a child completes one lesson, he is able to advance to the next lesson.  Mister loves that earns “tickets” in the Tickets and Rewards System.

The curriculum on ABCmouse.com includes lessons in preschool, pre-k and kindergarten levels in reading (i.e. language arts) including the alphabet, sight words, phonics, and children’s books; math including numbers, shapes, measurement, and patterns; social studies; basic science; art including drawing, coloring, tracing, paint-by-numbers; and music (children’s songs, etc).  The site offers progress tracking tools that allow you, as a parent, to monitor what activities your child has completed in each area, and measure how rapidly he child is progressing along the Step-by-Step Learning Path.

When I created the profiles for Mister and Sister, I placed him in the pre-k level an placed her in the preschool level.  While we are homeschooling and he is doing Kindergarten level language arts and first grade level math, I wanted to see how he was able to progress on his own.  She is doing preschool level work in homeschool, so the preschool level on ABCMouse.com should be perfect for her. Both loved learning to use the computer mouse, since our other educational programs do not require it.

Mister’s progress  is shown on his profile as well as in the detailed progress report that I can view.

The detailed progress report also shows me exactly what Learning Activities he has done.

The parent report also allows me to look at how he is doing by subject.

Mister’s favorite part about ABCMouse.com is the hamsters. It’s all about the hamsters.

Using his tickets, that he has earned for completing lessons, he has built an elaborate cage system and bought new hamsters.  He loves to check on his hamsters, feed them, water them, and switch out their tubes and such to change the cage around.  The hamsters motivate him to complete more lessons, so he can get more stuff for them.  Mister loves his hamsters, and funnily enough, so do I.  Those little creatures keep him interested in the program, and I think having them on the site is a stroke of genius!

ABCMouse.com is a subscription site.  While many educational sites are not subscription based, they are also not completely child safe in that they may contain links and/or advertisements that can lead your child away from their learning to other areas of the internet that may not be safe OR appropriate.  At ABCMouse.com, when your child is logged into their account, they will see no advertisements, no pop-up ads, and no links to other websites.  ABCMouse.com guaruntees that your child’s information is safe and protected, never asks your child for personal information, and ensures a safe and secure learning environment.  In short, ABCMouse.com offers peace of mind, and that is worth paying for.

While I do not plan to stop using our homeschool curriculum, ABCMouse.com is filling in for me while I take a little hiatus to tend to our new little one.

About Virginia

Hi there! My name is Virginia, and I am the author/owner of That Bald Chick. I am a Christian, wife, mother of three, full time homemaker, homeschooler, and ministry volunteer in addition to being a blogger. In my free time *cough* I enjoy reading, writing, taking walks with my family, and listening to music.

Comments

  1. I love that there’s so many activities on each one, including songs, so the kids can do different things. I would love this and could never afford the fee (justify it anyway!) so I’d love to win! My 4 yo can read but I struggle to provide math ‘fun’ for her that doesn’t include cooking!

  2. Mami2jcn says:

    I really like the learning through songs. I think it would be great for my daughter.

  3. Claire Rheinheimer says:

    i didn’t realize there are also art and song activities. I’d love to try this with my son!

  4. nicole barr says:

    I like how they offer a variety of learning games

  5. I love that they integrate music and art into the curriculum 🙂

  6. Darlene Jones-Nelson says:

    I didn’t know that ABCMouse had a full on line curriculm.

  7. I like that we can track my son’s progress under ABC Mouse so I can see where his strengths and weakness lie.
