Give them the Gift of Education with ABCmouse.com

I have been a fan of ABCmouse.com since 2012. Recently I contacted them about adding their program in my Annual Holiday Gift Guide because I love giving the gift of fun education to my children.


ABCmouse.com is an early learning software developed by Age of Learning, Inc. for the purpose of using technology to educate children through a full online curriculum. The current program will benefit children ages two through second grade with curriculum created by a board of teachers and educational experts from a variety of fields including science and history.


The online curriculum includes:
- Language development (vocabulary, listening skills, grammar)
- Reading (the alphabet, phonics, sight words, comprehension, genres, reading strategies)
- Math (numbers and operations, shapes, measurement, patterns,)
- Science and Technology (weather, plants and animals, matter and energy, space science, inventions)
- Social Studies (families and communities, geography and maps, U.S. history, states, famous Americans)
- Health (the human body, habits for health and safety, health care)

Each level and subject incorporates books, songs, games, puzzles, art activities, and printables to help children have a well-rounded experience with the information. The app is available on tablets and online.


When you first create an account, you enter your child's information and create an avatar that can look kind of like them, you can also select which "teacher" you would like for your child as well as a little pet that you can buy stuff for, but the only way to buy stuff is to complete the lessons and earn tickets. This encourages them to complete lessons so they can decorate for their pet.

You can set up one account for the low price of $7.95 a month for up to three different children. I set up an account for my children. The only issue I noticed is that I would have to make sure my son was in his account. Both of my kiddos have their own iPads and sometimes his would start on his sister's account.



If you go "Options" found at the bottom of your child's main screen, then you find the assessment center. Assessments help you quickly find out your child's academic strengths and areas for improvement so you can assign lessons that specifically address your child's needs. Look for Guided and Independent Icons to know which assessments you need to do with your child and which your child can take on their own. Once your child has completed and assessment, you'll receive a report that identifies areas in which your child needs practice. You can then assign lessons focused on those areas and reassess after those lessons are completed to measure improvement.


If you visit the parent only section (you will need to log in again), then you can easily see your child's progress. As you can see, my daughter has really enjoyed playing ABCmouse.com. My son enjoys it as well and I have caught him trying to switch over to his sister's account. I do wish that there was an option to make it a little harder for him to do that.

The great thing about ABCmouse is you can either give the gift of learning with a year subscription for only $79 (4 months free) or a TWO year subscription for only $99! If you would like to try it out before you commit to anything, then you can Try Your First Month Free. You can cancel anytime. You can also pay with major credit cards or Paypal.
