Early Art, Music, Science and Reading: ABC Mouse App Accelerates Basic Skills

We all want our kids to get ahead in this fast-paced, competitive world. But we also don’t want to push them too hard, or take the fun out of learning. Parents get it from all sides: “don’t let them watch too much TV, don’t let them eat peanuts, no, let them eat peanuts early…” it seems like everyday there is new information contradicting yesterday’s information.

We do know that learning can and should be fun, that we are mammals, and mammals acquire skills through play and interaction. Because of this, developers and educators have created some unique activities for digital devices that incorporate all the things kids love about cartoons with researched techniques that accelerate basic skills.

One of the standouts for ages 2-7 is ABC Mouse from Early Learning Academy, an app for phones and tablets that blends together all the fun songs and games from the ABC Mouse series. Believe it or not, this app contains 5000 different interactive games and activities for various levels of development. Enriching introductions to math, beginning science, art and music foster interest in all these subjects early on. Simple objectives, positive reinforcement and charming visuals meet kids where they are at, so they don’t become bored or overwhelmed.

Parenting Tip: ABCmouse.com is a treasure trove of early learning support and users can subscribe to the site within the app.

It’s important for our kids to get the fundamentals down, but equally important for them to enjoy themselves and the new wave of educational products on the market understand just that. We know now that by utilizing technology to engage with our children we give them the best of both worlds, time with us, and valuable skills.
