We are all trying to figure out how we are going to keep our children learning this summer when all they want to do is play games or eat. We don’t want them to fall behind during their time off school and have to work double hard to get caught up again at the start of the new school year. The best way to keep young minds fresh is to give ABCmouse.com a try. Your child will not even realize they are learning as it is game based and easy to navigate though. It’s perfect for pre-k through early elementary school students.
When you first log into your account, you will be asked to create your person. The kids can choose what color hair they have, and even pick out their own clothing. Once that is completed, you will see the home screen, or the “classroom” as shown above. This is your main source for navigating through the site. It is fantastic! The colors are nice and vibrant. Your child can select which activity they would like to do, from reading, math, world around us, art & colors, music & song, library, puzzles and games. In each category, they are able to complete tasks and earn “tickets”. They can earn more tickets based on the activity and the level they are on. They can also go to the Farm and the Zoo to learn fun facts about different animals and see them in action. The Basics will teach them tracing and word recognition among others. Here is a screenshot of what the music and reading pages will look like.
Your child can learn at his or her own pace and earn tickets to make purchases at one of the many stores. Children can purchase clothing, furniture, toys, and pets for their account. Parents can also take a more active role in their children’s learning process by visiting the parents section. In this section, parents can track their child’s progress per learning level. It will let the parents know how many books have been read, how many songs were played, and how many games and puzzles completed.
And, as if all that learning wasn’t enough, they even have a link at the bottom of their website for Printables! Perfect for those summer road trips! Bottom line, with ABCmouse.com, I don’t think your child will say they are bored, once!
