ABCmouse Mastering Math Wins Best Educational App Award

 

I’m thrilled to share that our new ABCmouse Mastering Math app was recently named Best Educational App by the Best Mobile App Awards.

Mastering Math is an innovative, game-based adaptive early learning app that helps preschool through kindergarten children build a strong understanding of the most fundamental math concepts: number sequences, numeral recognition, and counting objects. This 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. We believe that the unique combination of high-quality personalized early education with the ability to reach millions of children in need makes Mastering Math a truly noteworthy educational app.

The Mastering Math app leverages the Personalized Mastery Learning System developed by Age of Learning, Inc. 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.

Mastering Math is free for all members of ABCmouse Early Learning Academy. Learn more and download here for iPads and iPhones or here for Android devices.

Age of Learning Launches New Mastering the Alphabet App

ABCmouse Mastering the Alphabet app - by Age of Learning

I’m pleased to announce that Age of Learning recently launched our new Mastering the Alphabet mobile app, which is now available to all ABCmouse members via the Apple App Store and on Google Play!

ABCmouse Mastering the Alphabet mobile app from Age of Learning, Inc.

Mastering the Alphabet is the second mobile app built on our Personalized Mastery Learning System, which creates an individualized learning path for every child. This is our first mastery app for language and literacy, and the first to offer offline access.

Mastering the Alphabet adapts which letters are presented to a child by balancing what he or she already knows and needs to learn with practice. The game further personalizes the learning experience by prioritizing the letters of the child’s name and by allowing children to decorate their letter blocks with custom art. With each demonstration of letter mastery, these letter blocks are brought to life with delightful animations that set the stage for reading success!

This new app is the seventh in our Constellation app series, following ABCmouse Mathematics and Science animations. You can learn more about the first six apps by reading this blog post on AgeofLearning.com.

Mastering the Alphabet is available to all ABCmouse subscribers at no additional charge; download the version that’s right for you at the Apple App Store or Google Play

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
