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!

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.

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.

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!

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! 

—8-year-old brother in Mobile, AL

 

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

—Kindergarten teacher in Fort Worth, TX

 

This is a wonderful site for our developing language learners. Thank you for making it so accessible to public schools.

I am having SO MUCH fun on this. I am 6. With ABCmouse I have fun and learn.

We cannot express how happy we are with ABCmouse and all we have learned. Your updates are wonderful and we keep seeing new books videos and activities you have added.

ABCmouse is wonderful and very resourceful. As an educator this is one web site that I am using to reinforce, especially for differentiation.

I am excited to start ABCmouse with my students. … I used it with my own child and saw the amazing results!!!!!

Parents and Teachers Share Their Feedback about ABCmouse

At Age of Learning, we’re proud of the efficacy of our digital learning resources, as demonstrated in large scale studies of ABCmouse. But hearing directly from individual parents and teacher about how ABCmouse has made a positive impact in the lives of their children and students is equally gratifying.

For that reason, I’ll be periodically sharing selections from the thousands of feedback emails we receive each month here on my blog.

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

I love this site. My kindergarten kids also love it. I like that I can add specific lessons for any student. The students enjoy “playing” and I love knowing they are practicing on core standards. Keep creating fun learning activities and you will have excited, eager kids that will want to get onto your site to “play”! Learning should be fun with lots of playing! Thank you.

–Kindergarten teacher

I am a teacher, and I have been using this site with a student of mine who just moved to the United States. He is acquiring the language at a much faster rate thanks to this site! Thank you!

–Preschool and 3rd grade teacher

My daughter LOVES ABCmouse. She has learned so much from using all of the sections. We make it a point to complete at least 2 lessons daily and I have seen a huge improvement since she started ABC mouse when she was 3. Now that she is in Pre-K, I believe ABCmouse is the reason her learning level is as high as it is.

–Mother of a 4-year-old girl

I used this site for my son when he was three and he loved it. Now he is six, and he still is excited to learn information for his age. My four-year-old daughter started using it and now she is learning so much, which is intriguing my 18-month-old daughter as well. I would always recommend this site for parents. Even though I excel in academics, it has always been a challenge to find ways to teach my own children. Thank you for creating this site and helping me teach my children!

–Mother of three

We just moved to the states from Puerto Rico and our daughter had a little problem with the reading in English. We got this in October and all ready by December she was reading by herself. And her teacher and us are really happy with the improvement she has accomplished. So thanks for your program and keep up with your good work updating it.

–Father of a 7-year-old girl

My little boy loves the adventures and the time spent on your application. He also uses the application at school and has many advantages working with learning new spelling words, as well as phonetic sounds, which really help him and his journey and academic studies. My little boy is a special needs child as well as having autism, and we love your program!!!

– Mother of a 7-year-old boy

 

This is the absolutely the best gift I have ever received for my children and the best online game/app I have ever downloaded for them. My girls are 3 and 5. They can sit for hours and play this and never get tired of it. I am always shocked at how much they have learned. We are homeschooling so I really appreciate a program this comprehensive. Thank you ABCmouse.com!!
