Montessori teaching methods are proven effective methods for accelerating learning in young children, mirroring and nurturing natural language and number skills.
This app is particularly strong in teaching young readers and brings several Montessori methods for teaching to the digital platform. It should be noted that this app comes after you've taught your child to sound out letters.
First up is a phonetic object box. Pictures of objects and animals appear and are sounding out phonetically for the child. The student is then prompted to match notes (also phonetically pronounced) to the matching pictures. Next is a read and match game which follows along the same idea as the previous game. Then there are “sounds like” and “rhymes with” spelling games that further deepen an understanding of reading and phonics.
This is a great little app for great little minds and will absolutely start your student on the right path to reading.
