You can now access ABCmouse Early Learning Academy from home with your library card! This exciting resource has a robust collection of activities, eBooks and music for children in preschool through second grade. If you are unfamiliar with ABCmouse, watch this short video to learn more about it.
If your little one has played with the ABCmouse computers in Children’s Services, you may notice a few different features on the at-home eResource, including creating a learning path for your child to track their progress. Once grownups have created an account, it unlocks a dashboard full of pages to explore. The amount of content is impressive. There are eBooks that grownups and children can read together and books that ABCmouse will read aloud to children. You can also find games, puzzles and activities that support learning math, reading and even simple science. We also love that there are activities in Spanish!
Another one of our favorite things about ABCmouse is its ability to customize your experience. In addition to creating a lesson plan based on a short game-like quiz that your child can play, your child can also design an avatar that looks like them and choose which teacher they would like to lead them through the activities.
We hope you and your children have fun exploring! For more great resources you can enjoy from home, visit our Children’s eResources webpage.
