Award winning curriculum. Teacher recommended. Most comprehensive. Best of all, FREE trial for 30 days!
I signed my son up for ABC Mouse to give it a try. I’m so glad I did. My son enjoys exploring new apps and especially loves games that challenge him.
He loves ABC Mouse, and let me tell you why your child will love ABC Mouse also (and you’ll love it too)
This is a great option for moms who don’t know which lessons to teach for kids to be ready for kindergarten, or how to organize a curriculum to teach from home.

Reasons to give ABC Mouse a try
1. The curriculum is designed by teachers and professionals.
The comprehensive curriculum is designed by people who know what is the best way for children to learn.
2. The curriculum follows the lessons a student would learn in school and builds on each other.
Since the curriculum is designed by professionals, the lessons build on each other in an order that makes sense.
I do teach my son at home through lessons of my own, but my one downfall is that I don’t know the proper skills to teach first before moving on to other lessons.
I’ve mostly used my own knowledge of skills I know my son needs to know, but I don’t build in a sequence that makes the most sense.
We jump around a lot, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but I’ve learned, especially with math, that it makes the most sense to go in a specific order to build the skills needed.
3. The site is easy to use. My 4-year-old can navigate around the site with very little help.
It’s great that my son can navigate the site with very little help so I don’t get wrapped up in the lessons also, and inadvertently give him the answers! I want to see what he knows, not what I know and give to him!
4. You can use it anywhere in the world.
It makes it convenient to use it anywhere so we can still use ABC Mouse while visiting family. You do need an internet connection to access the curriculum and keep the progress.
5. Sign in on a phone, tablet or computer
Your child can use this on any technology you have available. My son can easily navigate an iPad so that’s what he uses when working on ABC Mouse.
6. See the results with your child
You can sign up to do assessments to see where your child is at. It looks like the assessments are a free 30-day trial but then it is an additional monthly charge if you choose to keep it. I just used it to see where my son was at and then I’ll cancel it instead of paying for the extra charge.
7. Teachers love it! (and you will too!)
Thousands of teachers and parents swear by using ABC Mouse. It’s a great supplement to aid in teaching your child.
8. Your child works on multiple subjects (math, science, reading, social studies, arts, and colors)
I’ve worked on math, reading, art, and colors with my son. We dabble in science, but we haven’t really touched social studies. I love that there are so many subjects that are covered in this one program rather than focusing only on one subject like other educational apps!
9. Saves all the work that your child has completed
My son started crying because he thought his art wasn’t saved because he really wanted to show me what he did and do a puzzle with it. Luckily, we were able to go into his artwork and find the project he completed!
10. You can do assessments to see where your child is at and how they’ve improved
Do an initial assessment and an end of the month assessment to see how much using ABC Mouse has helped your child. If you enjoy using the assessments and want something more than the progress reports ABC Mouse provides, you can keep the assessment feature and continue using them.
11. You fill out your child’s profile where you can start your child at the level you think fits best.
When you sign up for the free 30-day trial, you will complete a profile for your child. You choose which level your child should begin at. If the level is too easy, you can move them up to the next level. If it’s too difficult, move them down a level.
12. Has curriculum for children from ages 2-8
Your child can work with ABC Mouse for quite a while to guide them through their learning. If you have multiple children, you can make profiles for up to 3 children.
13. Has won multiple awards
Mom’s Choice GOLD Award. Teachers’ Choice Award. Parents’ Choice GOLD Award
14. Most inclusive curriculum program available
ABC Mouse offers an all around great curriculum covering multiple subject areas that usually aren’t covered by other programs offered to parents to use with their children.
15. Your child earns awards to build a bedroom, aquarium, and zoo of their own.
My son is so excited about these tickets he earns by completing lessons. He views the gifts he’s earned to build his avatar’s bedroom, the aquarium, and his hamster maze.
Your child is given a hamster that they get to name and a fish that they initially put in their aquarium. As they earn gifts and tickets they can make a pretty elaborate community for the avatar.
16. You can choose how to go through the lessons.
You can follow the learning path that ABC Mouse has available, or you can have your child skip around in the curriculum, or make up your own order!
17. The virtual teacher reads the problems and lessons to the child.
Your child will listen to the teacher reading books, and talking about the lessons. Everything is verbal for your child to follow, even the buttons so help the child navigate around the site.
18. ABC Mouse is always adding new content, lessons, puzzles, and activities.
Your child will never be bored with the lessons! Your child will be playing and not be realizing they are learning at the same time! New content ensures your child will always have something to work on at the level they are working on.
ABC Mouse is a great supplement for teaching young children the skills they need in school.
If you want to help your child get a jump start with school or your child needs a little extra help, ABC Mouse provides the curriculum to teach what your child needs to know.
