If you are the parent of a toddler, or a preschooler, you may already thinking about getting your child ready for kindergarten. If you have spent any time looking for curriculum or learning tools for your youngsters, you will know that there are tons of options out there, and it can be hard to sort out what is good, what isn’t, and what will be comprehensive enough to address your young learner’s needs.
If you haven’t already, I recommend that you check out ABCmouse.com. ABC Mouse offers the most comprehensive online curriculum for young learners. Age of Learning, the creator of ABCmouse.com, is guided by a team of educational experts, and is designed to support young learners on the path of school readiness. For those who are homeschooling their preschooler or kindergartner, it does provide a full online curriculum through kindergarten. All school subjects are included, such as reading and language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, health, art and music. There are over 5,000 individual learning activities and over 500 complete lessons, so there is definitely enough to keep your little scholar busy for quite some time!
When you sign up for ABCmouse.com, there are four options you can choose: Toddler Time, Preschool, Pre-K, and Kindergarten. The program allows you to customize an avatar for your child, which is super fun. Once you do so, you can dive right in. Most of the lessons are very short, which accommodates the equally short attention span of most young learners.
As you can see, ABCmouse.com is bright and engaging. Lessons include online books, games, coloring pages, songs, and puzzles.
The great part about the songs is that it changes colors as it moves along, allowing your child to follow along, building reading awareness. In addition to lessons, there is an interactive farm and zoo that your child can visit, so there is no shortage of fun!
ABCmouse.com is a overall extremely engaging, and I think is a great start for parents looking for an online component to their child’s preschool learning. Children are also rewarded for completing lessons with tickets, which they can use to “shop” for fun prizes, such as outfits for their avatar – this is a great way to keep kids’ interest up!
