I am very happy to share some wonderful I -Pad applications that are Montessori based. I have been using and recommending these apps for quite some time now and they are truly a great extension to help your children build on concepts and skills being acquired at school. We hope you enjoy them.
SELECT AN IMAGEIn both sections, there are a number of phonetically correct illustrations to choose from to practice writing. Did you know that writing comes before reading in Montessori?
|With two unique modes, the moveable alphabet and the storyboard, you can practice writing and reading, creating your own stories with fun and engaging illustrations|
PRACTICE SPELLINGWhile spelling is not important at this period of development, there is an opportunity to practice!
|Intro to Geography: North America includes a section that allows everyone to learn the flags of the countries of North America. Tapping through the various flags of each country, we come to identify their unique, colorful characteristics.|
|Above all else, Montessori offers children the freedom and independence to learn. Intro to Math captures that spirit, with enthusiasm!|
|Helpful hints guide your child as they work their way through the activities. This supports their independence and their self-esteem.|
|The app includes the famous 'control of error' method, which helps your child understand when they have done the activity the correct way, without telling them they are wrong.|
|The entire app can be navigated without reading. Elements are represented visually so they can be recognized by pre-readers.|
Your child learns the shapes of the numbers, and through tracing, writes them into muscle memory.
Each of the activities feels like a little puzzle, complete with gentle voice narration, smooth animations, and clean graphic design—sophisticated enough to feel suited to both the Apple and Montessori brands.”
