ABCmouse Customer Feedback for July 2017

Once again, I thank the many parents and teachers who have written to us to share their positive experiences with our ABCmouse website and apps.

Thank you, ABCmouse, for letting my child learn new things. Now she can READ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

—Father of a girl in West Palm Beach, FL

 

ABCmouse has been amazing and extremely beneficial for my students. It has been a great tool that allows me to connect the class with the home life. It gives the parents that are not able to come to the school the chance to see and interact with lessons their child(ren) are doing. … It is exciting and engaging.

—Pre-k teacher in Austin, TX

 

I love ABCmouse. I have used it with my students and my grandchildren. They have all shown an increase in skills after a short time. The lessons aren’t too long or wordy and are very engaging.

—Grandmother and special education teacher in Savannah, GA

 

In building the student/class course structure, ABCmouse gives you options in modifying lesson plans and activities to assist students who need additional teaching to help reach their goals. The lessons continue to keep students engaged in the activities at a constant pace. The interface allows the instructor to visualize the progress of each student and adjust lesson objectives accordingly.

—Pre-k and kindergarten teacher in Modesto, CA

 

My granddaughter loves this program. She is turning 7 this year and entering 1st grade and loves all the activities ABCmouse offers. Hours of fun and learning—thank you ABCmouse!

—Grandmother of a 6-year-old girl

 

I love the ABCmouse activities and how it tracks progress and keeps the students challenged as they learn. … Overall, AWESOME content and learning system … and the graphics are GREAT!

—Preschool and pre-k teacher in Las Vegas, NV

 

ABCmouse has really helped me differentiate lessons for my students.

—1st and 2nd grade teacher in Cincinnati, OH

 

I love ABCmouse. My kids are learning so fast and they are enjoying everything that they do. They’ve never had so much fun learning new things. This site is great, I recommend it to everyone.

ABCmouse Customer Feedback for June 2017

After a little break from posting customer feedback, I’m happy to post this selection of feedback about award-winning ABCmouse Early Learning Academy that we received in June 2017. This time, however, I’m going to offer some of the amazing and insightful feedback we’ve received from parents and teachers referencing specific ABCmouse learning activities.

The game format, as children of all different skin tones walk through the forest environment toward their camp site, was an engaging way to teach/review the five senses. The integration of forest animal needs and adaptations with the five senses lesson made the whole activity very interesting!

—Mother of an 8-year-old girl in Austin, TX

 

This is a fantastic activity! I liked how you asked students to fill in the title and label the axis. I also liked how you asked students to move the bars and compare data. Great job on this one!

—Mother in Oklahoma City, OK

 

This ABCmouse activity was engaging and easy to watch and listen to. The diversity of characters was great for all children to relate to. I liked the game that was inserted within the lesson to teach the characters about the five senses. It was a good idea to relate the senses to the environment where the characters were and indirectly teach the audience as well. The format was great as it didn’t just list the five senses and provide examples; it taught within a story that would leave students wanting to watch and learn throughout the lesson to see the end result.

—Mother of a 7-year-old boy in Atlanta, GA

 

This ABCmouse activity was a fantastic way to practice sight words AND rhyming words!

—Mother in Oklahoma City, OK

 

Great example to help with writing. Good use of writing vocabulary. I like the before-and-after example of the child’s writing. I also like how you brought us intonation. We grade on that now.

—Teacher with a 6-year-old child in Los Angeles, CA

 

I liked the ABCmouse lesson using compound words first, then moving to prefixes and suffixes, and then finally words broken into syllables. For students, this presents more familiar ways of breaking words into smaller words that they can practice and understand. As the words change, students are introduced to harder words, however, if they grasp the concept in the beginning, they will be able to break apart and read any words.

—Mother of a 7-year-old boy in Atlanta, GA

 

A great way to teach story elements. A great on-level way to break it down and explain how to write a story with all the essential elements and details. All the key vocabulary was used: setting, characters, problem, solution, etc.

Customer Feedback for ABCmouse: February 2017

All of us at Age of Learning, Inc., were once again humbled by the amazing messages of thanks and encouragement we received from families and teachers using ABCmouse. To date, we’ve received almost 3 million (2,998,721 to be exact). Here are a few from the past month that I’d like to share.

Thank you so much for adding second grade levels 9 and 10! I am so excited! I was overwhelmed with the thought of finding my daughter a different curriculum after she completed level 8. I love this program. It is engaging, and the printables, plus all the lessons, are amazing.

—Mother of a girl in Dearborn, MI

This is great! … And since this is a low income area that our school is in, I am so excited to share this awesome resource with the families to use at home. I have heard great things about it and of course all the commercials. So happy it is FREE for teachers!

—Pre-k and kindergarten teacher in Columbus, OH

I’m very smart. And I’m 7 years old. I love this site. It’s very good for children like me—and other kids.

—7-year-old in Chicago, IL

I think that this is the BEST SITE EVER! My 5-year-old has learned so much from this site. Right now she is in the honors reading group reading on a high first grade level. My 7-year-old old has brought up her reading level, and since math isn’t her best subject, ABCmouse has been that extra study guide for her. She is doing so well. THANK YOU!

—Mother of two in Arlington, VA

I am so thrilled to have found this amazing site! I tell everyone I know who has children—or even those who do not have children—that ABCmouse.com will change the way the world learns.

—Preschool teacher in Honolulu, HI

My son has a learning disability and has been using your site for 3 years. He is now 6 and despite his learning disability he is well above par and top of his class and just LOVES to learn! I ‘blame’ ABCmouse for ensuring my son does so well and loves learning so much. He is a genius, and the best decision I could have ever made for him was to sign him up for your site.

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

An excellent resource!!! I just love it. The animation really engages the students!!

—Kindergarten/1st grade teacher in Beaumont-Port Arthur, TX

I just want to give a shout out as to how much our family LOVES ABCmouse! We homeschool our kids and it is an excellent program for some extra enrichment! My kids compete over how many tickets they can earn to ‘buy new pets.’ And they enjoy all the activities. My youngest son has learning disabilities, has had more than one brain surgery, and also has some vision problems, and ABCmouse has helped to break the barrier with him and keep learning fun! Thank you!!!!!!

—ABCmouse family

We love it. All of my children and I love and use ABCmouse all the time. We refer everyone who has young children to also use ABCmouse. The kids can play on here for hours and it’s 100% educational. Their grades are up and improved, along with reading ability and sight words. Thank you ABCmouse.

—Pre-k/kindergarten teacher in Waynesburg, PA

Final ABCmouse Customer Feedback for 2016

For the first of my blog posts of the new year, I’d like to close out 2016 with a brief compilation of parent and teacher (and sibling) feedback that we received about our ABCmouse Early Learning Academy in December. Here’s to another year of learning. – Doug Dohring

I am 8. I have a sister who is 5 and a brother who is 2. This website is a miracle. Two weeks after we joined, my sister was the smartest in her class and my brother learned his ABCs.

 – 8-year-old big sister in Los Angeles, CA

Love it!!! Thanks for providing this to teachers. We are seeing more children coming to kindergarten with fewer skills. This site helps so much. 

– Kindergarten teacher in Columbia, MO

My son loves when he can take tests like his older siblings. He enjoys all the music. He is very excited to earn tickets. I love that he is learning by having fun. He can do it all by himself, too! 

 – Mother of 4-, 6-, and 9-year-old children

My youngest has hearing and attention problems. She played with ABCmouse all the time. I was so afraid that she wouldn’t keep up in kindergarten, but she has excelled. Unbelievable! She knows so much more than others in her class: shapes, sounds, letter sounds, numbers; I could go on and on. Thank you so much ABCmouse!

– Mother of an 8-year-old girl in Tucson, AZ

I enjoy the updated curriculum! The science section with Professor Hester is informative and fun, and the Literacy & Math sections have wonderfully challenging games for our class. 

– 1st grade teacher

My son is showing marked improvement when he uses ABCmouse, and we love the curriculum and the app.

 – Mother of a 1st-grade boy in New York, NY

I would like to thank you for the years that we have used the site and have been extremely happy with all that our children have learned as well as shared our love of the site with family and friends! Thank you!

 – Mother in Philadelphia PA

I have been using this website for my son since he was 2 years old and now he is 5 and he loves it just the same! This is the greatest ever to help your child(ren) learn! 

– Father of a 5-year-old boy

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.

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.
