Age of Learning Wins 3 Gold Stevie Awards for ABCmouse Mastering Math

ABCmouse_Mastering_Mathaba18_gold_winnerI’m thrilled to share that Age of Learning has today won three coveted Stevie Awards for our ABCmouse Mastering Math app: Best PreK / Early Childhood Learning Solution, Best Game-based Curriculum Solution, and Best Mathematics Instructional Solution. In January, Mastering Math was named Best Educational App in the Best Mobile App Awards.

Mastering Math is an innovative, game-based adaptive early learning app (available for Apple/iOS and Android mobile devices) that helps preschool through kindergarten children build a strong understanding of the most fundamental math concepts: number sequences, numeral recognition, and counting objects. Having that foundation is a key requirement for success in kindergarten and beyond. The app uses appealing characters and personalized learning pathways to help children achieve mastery through practice.

The app leverages the Personalized Mastery Learning System developed by Age of Learning. This adaptive learning platform recommends and customizes learning games to deliver an individualized learning path and personalized education to every child. The app actively adapts in real time to a child’s existing knowledge, filling in gaps in understanding and teaching new material as the child demonstrates they are ready for more advanced learning activities. Using data from a child’s interaction, the system adapts the sequence of activities presented, and even adapts within each activity, to optimize each child’s learning experience and ultimately help all children achieve math mastery.

Current ABCmouse members can use the Mastering Math app completely free just by logging in. If you are not yet a member, you can subscribe through this app to begin your family’s ABCmouse learning adventure.

Congratulations to everyone on the Mastering Math team at Age of Learning!

Parents and Teachers Praise ABCmouse

After skipping a month, I’m happy to resume posting a small selection of the messages we get each day at Age of Learning, sent from thankful parents, grandparents, and teachers who use ABCmouse at home and in the classroom.

I have a 5-year-old son and 6-year-old daughter, and they both love ABCmouse! It helps them to improve and expand their vocabulary, grammar, thinking skills, and math. ABCmouse makes learning fun and easy. Thank you! We’re looking forward for more exciting and challenging lessons or activities for our kids.

—“Supermom” of 5- and 6-year-old children in San Jose, CA

 

As a kindergarten teacher, I absolutely LOVE ABCmouse! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have so many students that have excelled because I offer it in my class, who otherwise wouldn’t have had the opportunity. ABCmouse is the BEST resource a primary teacher could ever use. You have the seal of approval from this kindergarten teacher/former Teacher of the Year/State Teacher of the Year Finalist.

—Kindergarten teacher in Jacksonville, FL

 

I’ve had an ABCmouse.com account for about 6 years now. My granddaughter was only 18 months old when I started. Now she is in 2nd grade and her younger brother in kindergarten. They both play together from time to time. Both kids have gotten a great head start from ABCmouse. My 5-year-old grandson has been reading since age 3 due in large part to ABCmouse.

—Grandmother of 7-year-old girl and 5-year-old boy in Miami, FL

 

I love how I can review letters, sounds, math skills, and sight words with my students and can give them review lessons for home. Thank you so much for ABCmouse!

—Teacher using ABCmouse for 1,958 days in Peoria, IL

 

The students in my classes have always enjoyed using ABCmouse to help them learn sight words. I have also seen it help them acquire background knowledge about things they did not know about.

Great video! [Level 10, Activity 23848] I like that you are showing kids tricks for determining author’s purpose. I also like the keywords that you used in the video, including “opinion,“ “expressing feelings,“ etc.

—Mother in Oklahoma City, OK

 

ABCmouse provides activities that are very engaging! Students love reviewing academics as well as learning songs. I can find materials to reinforce what each of my special education students learn on a daily basis.

—Preschool teacher in Los Angeles, CA

 

I love ABCmouse and am so thankful. I work in SpEd and this is wonderful for my kids to help with phonics and reading, math … and they can just have fun. My students especially love the songs. Thank you. I use this at school and encourage parents to purchase this for home use.

—Kindergarten teacher in Dallas, TX

 

ABCmouse is terrific! For my school, I have loaded 9 classes and linked them in various configurations! It’s easy for me as the administrator of the program and easy for students (K-2nd) to navigate! Great site!

—Kindergarten and 1st grade teacher in Spokane, WA

 

I absolutely love this site. I use it for enrichment with my ESL students and as a center for literacy and math. It is engaging, easy to navigate and one of the best programs that I’ve worked with so far.
