The ABC Mouse site has multiple apps that help children read by providing activities focusing on letter recognition, vocabulary development and word families. These activities are typically tied to themes such as music videos or Aesop's Fables to make learning to read more engaging for children.
One ABC Mouse app is Early Learning Academy, which focuses on reading as well as math, art, science, and music. Another app is Music Videos: The Letters A-Z. This app begins with music videos unlocked for the letters A, B, and C. Students can watch these videos and learn letter recognition skills, earning them tickets that will unlock the music videos for the other letters.
Another ABC Mouse app is the Aesop's Fable Series, which brings these classic stories to life with pictures and an easily-readable font. It has a glossary with child-friendly definitions to help build vocabulary development, and also offers parents tips from child literacy experts to help complement the lessons of the app itself.
A very specific app is Beginning Reader Series: Word Families. This app focuses on simple stories that help teach children word families, using rhyming words to help amuse the children as they learn. This app also has tips from child literacy experts to better help children make connections between sounds and words.
