Teaching Your Preschooler How To Use a Mouse

Advertising is already reaching my 3 year old daughter. Every commercial break, I hear, “I want that!” Once she told me she wanted “beautiful silky hair,” after watching a shampoo commercial.  Never a dull moment! One day, she came to me asking for ABCmouse.com. I kind of chuckled because I was wondering where the dot com came from but my persistent 3 year old made sure I saw the commercial. The commercial advertised online learning games for preschoolers. I got online and researched it. ABCmouse.com is preschool education for ages 2-5.  The curriculum covers music, art, math, science, songs and reading. Each child has an individualized learning path. Parents can customize the learning path and track his or her child’s progress. The site also offers free printables to put pen and paper to the learning. The site looked awesome but the only problem was that my daughter had no idea on how to use a computer mouse. I was clueless on where to even begin on helping her master that task. I probably didn’t have the patience that task required either. ABCmouse.com has a FREE tutorial on teaching kids how to use the computer mouse. Here is the link https://www.abcmouse.com/offers/multi/1. I was amazed on how the site taught her how to use a computer mouse. It really broke it down and helped her to become comfortable on the computer.  I told myself if my daughter could learn how to use the mouse, I would get her the subscription. Sure enough she mastered it! The monthly subscription is only $7.95 and if you enroll now you get a month free. I love that at 3 years old is independent and can play on the computer by herself.  She also loves earning tickets from completing her various fun tasks while she learns. After she has been rewarded with tickets we go to the shopping mall and buy anything from pet hamsters to clothes for her Avatar.  An Avatar is a character that represents your child.  I am really pleased with the learning she is receiving from the computer. The other day she told me how a plant grew and told me she read a book on her computer!  With the new lessons daily she never gets bored. She loves ABCmouse.com and I love that she is having fun while getting the skills needed for Kindergarten!

  1. I did a free trial of ABCmouse.com and really enjoyed it. It cost too much for us to continue a subscription though :( I didn’t know they had that tutorial though! My 4yo hasn’t been able to grasp how to work the mouse yet.
