New ABCmouse Mastering Math Apps

Age of Learning launches ABCmouse Mastering Math app

ABCmouse Mastering Math App, from Age of Learning

Age of Learning recently launched our new ABCmouse Mastering Math app for iOS and ABCmouse Mastering Math app for Android devices.

The Mastering Math app offers a set of fun learning games that personalize to your child. This adaptive game-based app helps preschool and prekindergarten children build a strong understanding of the most fundamental math concepts: the numbers one to ten and the quantities for which they stand. Having that foundation is a key milestone of kindergarten readiness.

With engaging characters and scenarios, individualized learning pathways, and continuous assessment built into every level of every game, Mastering Math helps children achieve proficiency through practice that incorporates repetition and variation—both of which are educational methods important to successful learning.

Current ABCmouse members can use this 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.

The Mastering Math app offers:

• Fun characters and engaging scenarios

• Games that moderate difficulty based on your child’s abilities

• Game-based instruction for three math topics: number sequences, numeral recognition, and counting objects

The Mastering Math app contains NO third-party advertising and DOES NOT share any personally identifiable information about you or your child with third parties.

If you’re an ABCmouse member, you can download the free app with the following links, or search for “ABCmouse” in the iTunes store or Google Play store:

 

A Selection of Our Latest Feedback on ABCmouse – November 2016

As I’ve done for most of 2016, I’d like to share some recent feedback we’ve received from parents, grandparents, teachers, siblings, and children who have been using our ABCmouse Early Learning Academy at home or in the classroom. I continue to thrilled to hear about so many success stories.

My 5-year-old child has been on ABCmouse for two years. We had him skip kindergarten … he knew too much for it. He can read, write, spell, do math, and more. ABCmouse is the best tool you can give your child and just sit back and watch as they learn so fast.

—Mother of a 5-year-old boy in Columbia, SC

 

My son loves the ABCmouse puzzles and book activities. He is learning fluency at a shockingly rapid pace. I also love that he plays these types of games vs. standard video games.

—Father of a 4-year-old boy in Baltimore, MD

 

I absolutely love using this app for math and reading games during our learning centers! It keeps my kids focused on the topic we’re working on and engaged in learning!

—1st grade teacher in Charlottesville, VA

 

My grandson loves ABCmouse. He is learning to spell and count. OMG, he was so happy, he went around spelling his name everywhere. I am so proud of him. Thank you for ABCmouse.

—Grandmother in Syracuse, NY

 

My granddaughter loves ABC, and I tell all my friends and even strangers to get this for their children. I am a professor in college and I shared with my students the benefits of early learning that is engaging and relevant.

—Grandmother (and Ph.D.) in Orlando, FL

 

My little sister already knew her ABC’s. But her teacher was saying she was not doing so well with her numbers. Now she knows her ABC’s AND her numbers. ABCmouse helped her with her numbers. ABCmouse.com is awesome!

This site is GREAT for my “kinder babies!” I love that I can completely differentiate their work and track how they’re doing.

The Value of ABCmouse: Parents and Teachers Share Their Feedback

As I’ve done for the last few months, I’d like to share some recent feedback we’ve received from parents and teachers who have been using our ABCmouse Early Learning Academy at home or in the classroom.

My daughter started this at just 3 years old and has now completed kindergarten. She is testing a full year ahead of not only where they say she should be, but of her classmates as well. She loved ABCmouse.com, and I recommend it every chance I get. Thank you ABCmouse.com for helping me help my daughter.

—Mother of a 6-year-old girl in Salt Lake City, UT

This is an amazing site. The ABCmouse center is the preferred center for all of my students. At this center, the students are able to interact with each other: comparing, contrasting, coaching, and just having plain old fun with the program and its activities. The side effects are favorable—with significant spikes in learning gains in academic skills.

—Pre-k teacher in Orlando, FL

ABCmouse is the best thing we ever did for our granddaughter. She has been reading since she was 4 years old. Thank you so much ABCmouse. Your teaching tools make it fun for children to learn. I would recommend this for all children.

—Grandmother of a happy mouser since age 3

We love ABCmouse! Jaxon has been on ABCmouse for 4 years and has gotten so much from it. His teachers also use ABCmouse, so it makes it easy to hook up with the lesson plans they want him to work on.

—Parent using the ABCmouse app

My students love to work on the alphabet games, which have really helped them with letter sounds and sounds and recognition.

—Preschool and pre-k teacher with 861 days using ABCmouse

We are traveling all the time, so it’s hard for us to keep Ginny in pre-k class. ABCmouse gave us freedom of doing the lessons whenever and wherever we are.

—Mother of a 4-year-old girl

My daughter has been using this site for the past 2 years. She is now about to be 6, and I can honestly say ABCmouse has taught her skills that I didn’t think a child her age should know. The laughter from her learning is music to my ears. Thank you ABCmouse for making learning a happy place for our children!

—Mother of a 5-year-old girl

I love this site. My little one and I play it every day. My daughter who’s 9 always helps my little one. I’m so happy they made a website like this where my little one can learn! She starts dancing every time she hears the music.

—Mother of 2- and 9-year-old girls in Hagerstown, MD

Age of Learning Launches ABCmouse for Schools, a Scalable Solution for School Districts and School Groups in the U.S. and Globally

We’re proud that ABCmouse.com Early Learning Academy has become a trusted early learning program for more than 65,000 classroom teachers across the country. However, district-level educators have asked for additional features to support implementation of ABCmouse across all of their early elementary classrooms, with the goal of ensuring that all of their younger students become 3rd-grade-ready. To meet this critical need, we are excited to announce today the launch of ABCmouse for Schools, a scalable solution to meet the pre-k through 2nd grade needs of school districts and school groups in the U.S. and internationally.

ABCmouse for Schools offers two solutions: ABCmouse.com Early Learning Academy, a comprehensive supplemental curriculum that builds a strong foundation for academic success across subject areas required for 3rd grade readiness; and the new ABCmouse English Language Learning Academy, which can be used by teachers as a core program or as a rich supplemental resource to provide a developmentally appropriate English language immersion experience.

ABCmouse for Schools complements these curriculum offerings with student management, professional development, curriculum alignment, and progress reporting tools.

Parents and Teachers Share Their Praise of ABCmouse

As I’ve done for the last couple of months, today I’ll be sharing some of the most recent positive feedback we’ve received at Age of Learning. Once again, we received thousands of messages from parents and teachers who’ve been using ABCmouse with their children and students. Their brief stories are both gratifying and inspiring, confirming that our work at Age of Learning is making a very real and meaningful impact on the lives of children.

I love ABCmouse! My daughter could read brand new books cover to cover by the time she turned 4. She is 4 1/2 now and reading on a 2nd or 3rd grade level. She can also do basic addition and subtraction and has advanced reasoning skills as well. Thank you for creating such a comprehensive and entertaining learning program!!

—Mother of a 4-year-old girl

 My very artistic and ACTIVE 5-year-old granddaughter, who lives with me, finds the learning so absorbing and fun that she will gladly take time from other active pursuits to sit and “play” ABCmouse! She loves the color, the ability to repeat an activity or to move on. Thank you for helping me to help her love learning.

—Grandmother of a 5-year-old girl in Cleveland-Akron, OH

I love the printables for use in my class. They are clear and great quality. I’m excited about incorporating this site into my curriculum as a home study addition.

—Preschool teacher in Huntington Beach, CA

We love this site. Kam’s willingly comes to get my iPad to begin his lessons. He is two and enjoys learning his colors and the other activities. He is speaking now and the clarity of sound on the site has helped immensely with his pronunciation. Hearing his voice say “Mommy” after everything else (therapist, special learning and hearing tools) we have tried was almost as awesome as his birth!!!!!!

—Mother of a 2-year-old boy in Atlanta, GA

 I am a mother of a two-year-old and six-year-old. Both LOVE ABC Mouse. Every day they request to play the games, music, and absolutely love the printed coloring pages! This is a wonderful site, my two-year-old has already earned a certificate and my six-year-old has nearly mastered the highest level. Winning the tickets and prizes are a great motivational tool as well. Thanks ABCmouse.com!

—Mother of two girls, ages 6 and 2

 I could not be more pleased with this site. It has given my daughter an advantage through the years and as she progresses out of kindergarten and into the first grade. Thank you ABCmouse.com.

—Mother of a 6-year-old girl in Denver, CO

I feel that the ABC mouse program does very well at keeping the children’s attention. Each lesson is interactive and learning is made fun for each student.

—Teacher in Los Angeles, CA

 My granddaughters love the incentives! They have both always been eager learners and ahead of the learning curve for their age. ABCmouse has allowed them to continue learning at their unique levels.

—Grandmother of two girls in Birmingham, AL

Hi, good day. I must say that this program has been helping my son, who is 12 years old, at school. He is a special child, and he has now started to learn. I was surprised to see the progress that he has been making.

—Mother of a 12-year-old boy

My granddaughter is 7 now and in 2nd grade. I highly recommend ABCMouse.com as a learning tool. My granddaughter enjoyed ABCmouse and spent hours of excitement and learning on her path to learning. I thank ABCmouse for making such a big contribution to her learning abilities.

I can honestly say we are BOTH learning from this. He is gaining valuable knowledge from the lessons AND I am learning a lot about him!

Thank You for making ABCmouse available for our children. We serve low income families and having access will increase the children’s ability to learn. Thank You!

—Mother of 6- and 8-year-old girls

Great website for the young minds. My students love the challenges and the rewards they get.

I have twins … and they have such different personalities and learning abilities. ABCmouse has them thriving and learning and loving to learn, which is great for four-year-olds to love to learn. Thank You!

—Mother of 4-year-old twin girls

My class with children that have special needs LOVE this program. It has been a great way for us to incorporate more math and ELA into our day, while also keeping them interested and fully engaged.

ABCmouse has been fantastic. My daughter had been in preschool for 4 months and was struggling to remember letters and did not know their sounds. Within 1 month on ABC mouse she knew all letters and sounds.

—Mother of a 4-year-old girl

 

My daughter was born almost 2 months premature … she is now 4 1/2 and she attends a Head Start program but needs a little extra to help her succeed … ABCmouse is just that! Thank you! I’ve also started my 2-year-old on it as well and she now enjoys to sing along to songs and points out letters!

—Mother of 4- and 2-year-old girls

My son had speech problems and couldn’t say many words. Within the first week using ABCmouse he was saying so many more words. Even trying to say sentences. Its AMAZING! Thank you so much ABCmouse.com!!

—Parent using the ABCmouse Android app

This is a great tool for a toddler. I like that it is easy to navigate and very kid-friendly. The rewards point system has made my child look forward to participate more on the tasks that are given. I also enjoy watching and singing the different tunes for the letter sounding sections. Thank you, ABCmouse.com.
