With all of the schools closing either for Spring Break or due to the Coronavirus, you might be worried about how to keep your child busy and learning at home while they’re stuck inside over the next couple of weeks. Thankfully, ABC Mouse is taking the occasion to open its virtual doors to all new students for free for 30 days.
ABCmouse is an online learning academy by Age of Learning. Their online curriculum is designed to assist kids in pre-k, kindergarten, and early elementary school programs.
The online courses have no ads, pop-ups, or links to other sites. Instead, it lets children learn in a safe and secure environment. It offers programs in reading, math, science, and arts.
ABCmouse can be accessed from a computer or via a tablet/smartphone thanks to the company’s app. So it can keep your kids busy whether they’re at home or when they’re with you in the car. This deal is for a limited time only, so get that free month while you can.
With everything shutting down in the U.S. and across many countries, a lot of us are stuck at home … with our kids, trying to get work done and keep their brains from turning to mush watching TV all day. One way to keep your little ones occupied, guilt-free, is ABCMouse.
ABCMouse is an educational resource for ages 2 through 8 and covers reading, math, science and art. It works using a browser on a PC or Mac, but is also available as an app on iPad and Android tablets.
Right now, the site is offering a 30-day free trial, with no obligation to continue after the month is over.
There are more than 9,000 activities, including books, learning videos, songs, puzzles, art activities and printables within each topic. There is also a reading curriculum to get kids learning the fundamentals at a young age.
Once you’ve signed up for the free one-month trial, the “ABC mouse” greets you to help you get started.
ABC Mouse and Adventure Academy are the most well-rounded options of the three sites, so you’ll just want to choose whichever is best for your child’s grade level. With ABC Mouse, your child will be able to read stories, play fun math games, learn about the solar system, and even do arts and colors lessons, while Adventure Academy offers a 3D world for your child to explore while learning skills in language arts, science, math, social studies, and more. Both of these services usually cost $10 per month.
ReadingIQ is extremely handy if you’re hoping to help your child improve their reading skills, as it offers over 7,000 for kids of all reading levels as well as reading level assessments so you can see how they’re doing at any time. It doesn’t just include a bunch of stories they’ve never heard of either, but rather a wide selection of titles from publishers such as Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, Curious George, and more. It’s normally priced at $8 per month, so now’s a great time to give it a try and see if it’s the right pick for your little one.
After the trial, you may consider signing up for a full subscription if your child enjoys the service and saving 49% on a one-year subscription.
