App Review: ABCmouse

App Review: ABCmouse

One of the most commonly asked questions I get from parents and friends is about the apps we use at school to help children in literacy and numeracy. There are literally thousands of apps that promote knowledge of letters, sounds, numbers, counting and the list goes on. The fact is, the more practice that you do to promote foundational knowledge, the better. Now that my own daughter Ella is starting school next year, there has never been a more important time to spend time with her. Reading, drawing, playing. There has also been an app that I have come across that has literally propelled her to new levels of knowledge and confidence. If you have Foxtel at home, and your children watch Nick Junior, then you may be familiar with ABCmouse. Being both a parent, and a teacher I approached ABCmouse myself to ask them if I could check it out and review it from the perspective of both. I have been given the chance to try it out for a year with my children. This is something that I searched for myself, it was not something that was offered to me. I genuinely want to find products that help parents help their kids learn. We have been using the program for a month, and I have to say that I’ve never seen anything like it. Ella literally begs me to use ABCmouse. She has developed her knowledge of commonly used words and phonetical strategies. She is able to predict text before she reads is and uses the wonderful visual cues to help her sound out words. Ella is mid way through kindergarten. Her intrinsic motivation to learn to read has literally blown me away. As a teacher, I have to say that the personalised nature of the learning pathway is phenomenal. As a parent, seeing my daughter literally soak up the learning has brought me to tears. If I were another parent, I would literally delete all of the other educational apps and just install this one. It’s that good. I repeat, I have not been paid in any way to write this review. It’s not a sponsored post. It’s just a great educational find to help parents, help their kids.

What’s more is I’ve got a 50% off code to give parents an annual subscription half price. Read below to find out how!
