With all of the schools closing either for Spring Break or due to the Coronavirus, you might be worried about how to keep your child busy and learning at home while they're stuck inside over the next couple of weeks. Thankfully, ABC Mouse (opens in new tab) is taking the occasion to open its virtual doors to all new students for free. You'll just need to use promo code SCHOOL7771 to take advantage of this offer.

What's awesome about ABC Mouse is that it actually operates three sites for children of various ages, so you can select the one that's right for your child or potentially mix the schedule up with more than one to keep them occupied. And best of all, the sites are accessible not just on computers but tablets and smartphones as well.

Free ABC Mouse Online Access for Pre-K through 8th Grade (opens in new tab)

School may be closed, but that's no excuse for letting learning fall by the wayside! Visit one of ABC Mouse's sites to gain free access for your child to start learning with fun games and activities online.

ABC Mouse (opens in new tab) is perfect for kids from as young as two years old up through the 2nd grade. Meanwhile, Adventure Academy (opens in new tab) is a better resource for older children and intended for those in 3rd grade through 8th grade. There's also the sister site Reading IQ (opens in new tab) which supports reading levels from preschool children to those in the 6th grade.

ABC Mouse and Adventure Academy are the most well-rounded options of the three sites, so you'll just want to choose whichever is best for your child's grade level. With ABC Mouse, your child will be able to read stories, play fun math games, learn about the solar system, and even do arts and colors lessons, while Adventure Academy (opens in new tab) offers a 3D world for your child to explore while learning skills in language arts, science, math, social studies, and more. Both of these services usually cost $10 per month.

ReadingIQ (opens in new tab) is extremely handy if you're hoping to help your child improve their reading skills, as it offers over 7,000 for kids of all reading levels as well as reading level assessments so you can see how they're doing at any time. It doesn't just include a bunch of stories they've never heard of either, but rather a wide selection of titles from publishers such as Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, Curious George, and more. It's normally priced at $8 per month, so now's a great time to give it a try and see if it's the right pick for your little one.

Be sure to use the promo code SCHOOL7771 to score free access to the site of your choice, and consider signing up for a full subscription if your child enjoys the service.
