We are in love with a educational program called ABC ABCmouse.com. It’s a educational site that allows up to four children and one parental account for about $7.95/month.
We are very impressed with ABCmouse.com. And while it is geared towards young children all of my kids under 10 love it as well! Your kids will have fun while learning.
My kids favorite part is that they earn tickets for the “school work” that they do and then use the tickets to buy things for their virtual house. They have so much fun decorating and shopping! This reward system does not cost anything extra, it is just a part of the educational program. Therefore, our younger children are learning about money as well.
The school work includes learning sounds, letters, colors, numbers and counting. There are different subjects (reading, math, the world around us, art & colors, music, library, puzzles, games) to choose from or the parent can assign lessons for each day. There are six levels on ABCmouse.com levels 1-6.
The music and voices on ABCmouse.com are very uplifting and encouraging. There is no condescension in the instructors at all. There are a lot of the old nursery rhymes that my children just love.
What I love? It’s SO educational and yet it’s fun! Your kids won’t even realize that they are learning! My four year old knows her abc’s much better than she did before she started the program and she knows how to count better too. She has consistently earned high marks on her work.
My three year old still needs help with using the computer mouse, but I think he is just so easy going that it is second nature to him to let his older siblings do it for him while he tells them the answer. My four year old and seven year old both knew how to use a computer mouse at age 2!
Our children LOVE this program, they ask to do it every single day and I am very impressed with the quality of this program as well as the content. We give this educational site a two thumbs up for an overall grade!
