Until recently Addison did not have much interest in anything in the technology world. It dawned on me one day that she did not know how to use a mouse. I heard about a new web site for pre k through k .. abcmouse.com once i looked at it, i really liked the way it is set up. i like how it keeps track of progress. there are parent controls. there are rewards.. and... Shopping!! which for Addie is a Fun reward. earning tickets and spending them.. yep, she loves it!
We signed up for it and she enjoyed it from the get go. you design your "avatar" person.. she had a lot of fun doing that. She quickly learned to use the mouse and has been well on her way ever since. I too have really enjoyed using this site. It's a great thing for some late afternoon quiet time that she can do alone. But i think both of us prefer the times we both sit down and work together. She gets to pick something and then I do... she has caught on that i always pick the lessons!
what are some of your favorite sites for kids?
any great ones out there for older kids? (ie. for my 7 year old)
