Have you ever heard of ABCmouse.com
? I saw a commercial for it awhile back, and I was intrigued. My twins will be starting kindergarten in the fall, so when I saw “Educational Games” I was ready to hop on board!
Of course it helped that they were offering to give me the first 30 days Free so I could see what it was all about!
Our family has never looked back. We went through our Free month, and became loyal subscribers! My kids LOVE this program. It’s a totally interactive game, but they learn stuff and they don’t even realize they are learning!
ABCMouse is only $7.95 a month, and you can have individual learning programs for up to 3 kids all for that same price! It is based on the internet, so you have no program to buy, and it’s totally advertisement Free, so there is nothing for your kids to click on that can take them to questionable material.
I just let them go on, and they click around playing the games they want to play, and have fun learning! There are different age levels, plus there are even different learning levels you can set among the age levels.
Each kid has their own person that represents them, and they even have their own bedroom. This is Adam above. Adam is obsessed with the color red, so he dressed himself all in red, even his shoes and the stripes on his socks! They can change their clothes and hair, and earn things for their bedrooms by playing learning games! Whenever they complete a game, they get tickets.
They can use those tickets to buy things for their bedroom, or buy clothes, and they even have a fishtank they can get all decked out in their bedrooms by buying new fish for it. (They also have to clean the fish tank or it gets green. My kids think that is hilarious when they go in and their tank is green!)
From the parent’s perspective, you can go in and tailor the hardness of what they are doing as well as their learning path. You can get printable pages with letters, or even their names so they can work on writing as well. You can also block activities if they are insisting on doing only one thing and you want them to try something else.
Plus, I really like that I don’t have to worry about them clicking into things they shouldn’t be in while they are on the internet. (That is why they have the monthly fee for the program; because they have no ads on the site that your kids can get into trouble with.)
