Jude is a task driven child. If he doesn’t have a project to do he will create one which sometimes means I get my furniture rearranged or closet completely emptied. So this summer I will be spending a lot of time engaging Jude with different activities to keep his busy little brain occupied. Since he has 2 younger brother’s I can’t devote all of my time to him so we signed up for ABCMouse.com
Jude has been using ABCMouse.com for a few weeks and he loves it. To him it’s just games and puzzles but to me it active learning. We made a little video explaining how he uses ABCMouse and what he loves about it.
Jude has really come to love earning tickets so he can “buy” special items for his collections. We’ve been talking to him about saving up his tickets so he can buy bigger items and working toward a goal. I really love this aspect of the site because it’s helping me teach Jude about financial responsibility even at the age of 5.
I don’t like my kids to spend too much time in front of a screen so I do limit the amount of play time he has each day. However I don’t feel bad about letting him play ABCMouse.com because I know he’s learning while he plays.
I received a free membership to ABCMouse.com. The opinions expressed in this post are my own and not influenced by the company.
