Mamas, have you ever seen the ABCmouse.com commercial? Well I let my kids watch some this summer when we went to visit my parents and they saw the commercial for ABCmouse.com. They kept asking and asking to try it and I was interested in the program, so I decided to check it out for myself. It was very easy to sign up for the account. I was able to create a profile for each kid and personalize their little avatar to go with it. (I was very impressed with all of the options that they had to create the avatar that looks exactly like my little guys). After that the kids are all set up for their individual account but it is all attached to my account.
I have been having all of my children do a little bit of homework everyday this summer, so this fit nicely into our routine. My older son (7) can do this all on his own, but my younger two (3) need a little bit of guidance. My older guy helps the little ones when it is their turn on the iPad. He loves to be a helper and the little guys love the attention from him, so that has been great.
As for the program itself, it is broken up into lessons and activities. The child completes a lesson or learning activity and earns tickets that can be used in different shops to buy different things to decorate or create! For instance, you can earn tickets and then go into the pet shop and buy a pet and accessories for the pet. This is a really cool feature because it gets the kids excited to complete the lessons.
Another SUPER COOL FEATURE is that there is a parent portion of the program where you can check the progress of your child. I LOVE this part because I can give my child some independence while using this program, but then I can check to see how it’s going!
Some info from the company…
