A year after first discovering it, our 8yo still visits ABCmouse.com nearly every day. Although she could choose from many sites to visit during her computer time, she most often chooses ABCmouse.com, where she keeps busy with the over 2,000 activities for over 350 lesson plans.
The activities include games, puzzles, book reading, a zoo to visit, and much more. Your child won't realize that he/she is learning so much, but you will, since the site keeps track for you.
The comprehensive curriculum includes these preschool, pre-k and kindergarten subjects:
- Reading (the alphabet, phonics, sight words, children’s books)
- Math (numbers, shapes, patterns, measurement)
- The World Around Us (basic science and social studies)
- Art and Music (drawing and coloring, tracing, paint-by-numbers, children’s songs, and more)
As a parent, I appreciate that ABCMouse.com allows no outside links, and no ads. A grandparent, or whomever you have specifically allowed, may send your child a message within ABCMouse.com, but there is otherwise no interaction allowed.
