ABC Mouse

Posted 02-18-2013 at 09:49 AM by Krista

As I wrote about recently, I have been informed my newly turned four year old is behind her same age peers. While it initially was cause of a major freak out moment, since then I have been trying to move forward and do something about it. We have been doing worksheets at the house, but there is only so many times she can trace letters or count to ten before she gets bored.

My husband had actually recommended a program called ABC Mouse, but it wasn’t until a fellow mom of a four year old mentioned it that I decided to check it out. And boy am I glad I did! Unfortunately we are in a position right now where it would be difficult to afford preschool, not to mention that I’m not quite ready for my girls to start school. This program—so far—seems to be a pretty good compromise.

Cost-wise it is much better. It is $7.95 a month, and you get the first month free. I went ahead and signed up for the year, which was $54, giving me another four months free. You can design your own lesson plans, from subjects like math, reading, art, etc. Each kid designs their own avatar and when they finish each lesson correctly they earn tickets to buy things for their avatars or pets.

I think it’s pretty neat. You can add up to three kids for no additional cost. And it includes all of the programs from age 2 to Kindergarten. It also lets you check on your child’s progress anytime you want. I am very excited about this and hoping it works for us. I thought I would share it with any of you parents out there who might be looking for something similar.

    We also have it, for my 4 year old and 2 other daycare children I watch. I really like it! I do feel like some of the lessons are very hard for the ‘program’ I chose, but it just challenges them, or gets them to ask for help. I really love SO much about it, and feel it’s totally worth the money. We will most likely homeschool, and I plan to use it for Kindergarten for my son as his ‘fun’ thing to do. Really educational!

    How did you get the year for $54? I’m finding it’s $79 per year. Do you have a coupon code to share? ;)
