ABCmouse is Free for Teachers!

July 16, 2018

Finding a robust resource for ELA and math activities for students can be a challenge. This is especially true if you’re looking for free ebooks, activities, and games for students. ABCmouse is a super popular educational platform, and it is 100% free for teachers to use in the classroom! I had the chance to talk with their team at ISTE this year and learn all about the free ABCmouse for Teachers accounts and exciting new features.

New ABCmouse Features

If you haven’t opened up ABCmouse recently, you’ll want to check out some of the new features they’ve announced for back-to-school. For Back to School this year, you’ll see a variety of updates and access to brand new content. As you can see in the screenshot below, this year the team at ABCmouse updated their user interface to make it even easier for teachers to navigate. The new interface displays three core functions—Plan, Teach, and Monitor. On the dashboard, teachers can quickly access a roster for students. Teachers can find and assign standards-aligned learning activities and playlists straight from their dashboard. They will also be able to communicate with families and monitor student progress.

In addition to the updated user interface, there is a new digital library with thousands of book titles. When you open up the new ebook library, you’ll find original books from ABCmouse and award-winning titles from acclaimed authors and publishers. There is also a clear reading-level indicator to help users find and assign books. You’ll recognize the Lexile levels and Guided Reading levels right away. A Read-to-Me mode in the digital library lets students listen to books read aloud on any device.

The new features from ABCmouse also include Common Core-aligned playlists for K-2 Math and ELA. Teachers will find access to ABCmouses’ award-winning adaptive math app Mastering Math too. Since ABCmouse is free for teachers, you can jump in right away and explore content to use in the new school year.

    Hi Monica, I see the link that ABC Mouse is free for teachers. Does that apply to homeschooling? We are a homeschooling family and are always looking for help on finding an appropriate and CURRENT curriculum. Everything for homeschooling in the area seems to be from 1980s?

    Hi, thank you so much for your help. I created a teacher acoount, added all my students, but when I assign a lesson, is only available to one of my students, not all.

      Hi Christine, I’m so sorry to hear you’re having trouble setting this up. The best folks to help you with this are at ABCmouse. Have you tried connecting them directly?

  3. I homeschool 3 kids at all different stages. I would love to be able to access abc mouse for free like the teachers. I don’t know why homeschool parents are treated so different from school teachers.

    Hello, my mother has opened a small early development school and the school does not have internet. Is there a way to have the program preloaded to tablets? Are there versions of offline products? The classroom has about 18 students, will each student have the ability for individualized learning? I understand the teacher can have a free product (mom has internet at home) is she able to update the product if she takes the tablets home? Cost maybe a factor if the product is not free. Please reach out to me as I am interested in helping this small school. I will be purchasing the tablets for the school and looking for assistance. Thank you

      Hi Sophia, thanks for reaching out! The situation might be different for sites looking for offline content. Your best bet is to reach out to them directly to check in with how well they can support you through these connectivity challenges. Can’t wait to hear what you think about ABCmouse! Best, Monica

      Hi Dawn, I’m not sure if you can access it for free but I would definitely reach out to them to ask. If there is a library in your community with access that might be another option to explore :) Best, Monica
