ABC Mouse

ABCmouse is designed to help young children (ages 2 – 8+) build a strong foundation for future academic success with more than 10,000 fun learning activities in reading, math, science, social studies, art, and music. More than 1,200 activities are offered in Spanish. 

Lessons are tailored to specific ages and intended for children to learn important educational basics using a computer mouse, with virtual field trips to the zoo and farm, animated music videos, art activities, books, puzzles, and educational games. ABCmouse also features learning assessments and rewards, to measure your child’s progress and encourage learning.
