Because I just learned that ABC Mouse.com is having a 50%+ off sale for Cyber Monday, I’m resharing my review of the service for your your added edification and consideration.
I learned recently that a friend of a friend’s child, who is 10 years old, has never owned a book outside of books assigned to him at school.
Reading, and chapter books, are the building blocks to reading comprehension, composition and sentence structure, and command of language, orally and in writing. Many standardized tests require students to master these subjects, not to mention some school entrance tests.
They are also great for supplementing information and materials your child may be learning at school.
She does 2nd grade math and she is only in Kindergarten and her oral communication and vocabulary are tops, partially because of it. It helps that her school also has the software embedded in each Kindergarten class so she is very comfortable with it and gets a chance to get even further in the lessons daily.
