I was super excited when I had the chance to work with ABCmouse. When I told Aubreigh we were given the opportunity to review ABCmouse she was excited and her face lit up. We were sent a code that gives us a full year with ABCmouse.
It was very easy to get started. I was first able to create the Parent Account. I love that they have the parent account. I can go into the parents section and into Progress Tracking and see what all Aubreigh is up to. It tells me how many lessons she has completed and how far she is gotten. I can also go in and print out the different activities from the lessons she is working on. Right now she is on Level 3 and completed 24 out of the 509 learning activities. She has earned 77 white Stars and One Gold Star.
The next section I was able to create each girls an account. Each family account can have up to 3 children on it. From there you can select your teacher and on the next page you can customize your childs avatar. Aubreigh picked out a green and pink outfit. She also wears glasses so I also put a pair of glasses on her avatar. I think it is great they include all types of kids for their avatars.
Next we were able to pick out her fish and hamster. ABCmouse uses a ticket reward system. Kids can earn anywhere from 1-4 tickets from doing various lessons and can take them to the shopping plaza to buy stuff for the hamster, fish, new outfits for their avatar, furniture for their room and more. It’s a great learning tool because while the kids are “spending” they are also learning how to balance their money.
The program is also set up where you can go to the classroom and follow the learning path or you can play around and go into whatever you would like. Everything in the classroom is clickable. Aubreigh clicked on the solar system mobile in the corner and it brought up different planet lessons she can play on, including coloring pages she can print out.
She has a few fish and a hamster in her classroom that she takes care of. Aubreigh and Kaylee both have really enjoyed reviewing ABCmouse. Aubreigh is in preschool, but ABCmouse gives her the extra attention in the areas she needed help in. Her teacher came and told me she wanted to know my secret because in a matter of a week Aubreighs testing scores had already starting improving and when I told her it was all thanks to ABCmouse she was amazed. Kaylee is only 3 but while her sister is at school I let her play around on ABCmouse and she can already count to 10 and knows her colors. She loves playing on Toddler Time.
If you want to purchase your own subscription to ABCmouse you can visit here and enroll your child for only $7.95 per month or $79.00 per year. It is a great investment.
