Before diving into the app, here’s more about the Montessori Learning Method:

In Montessori classrooms children make creative choices in their learning, while the classroom and the highly trained teacher offer age-appropriate activities to guide the process. Children work in groups and individually to discover and explore knowledge of the world and to develop their maximum potential…”

The Montessori Words & Phonics app helps children develop their writing, spelling, and reading skills by “using a set of 320 word-image-audio-phonics combinations using a phonics-enabled Movable Alphabet.”  The app helps children learn and understand two fundamental concepts:

  1. First, the app helps students understand that words are made up of sounds/phonics (phonemic awareness).  For each word, students can touch the empty rectangles where letters must be dragged to complete the word and hear the sound the corresponding letter(s) produces.
  2. Secondly, the app helps children memorize the phonics associated with letters by providing a phonics-enabled alphabet where children can touch each letter to hear the associated phonic.
