[prMac.com] Gilbert, Arizona - Brain Counts today is pleased to announce the first in a complete series of Montessori-centric educational apps for kids ages 2 and up. "Approach to Montessori - Numbers" is an iPad application that parents can download from Apple's iTunes App Store and use as a visual learning tool to help kids understand numbers, whether at home or in a classroom environment. This application was created in close conjunction with a team of certified Montessori educators.
"Approach to Montessori - Numbers" bundles the following six discrete yet related Montessori proven activities to teach number foundations:
1. Dancing Numbers
3. Number Rods
4. Bead Stairs
5. Number Blocks
6. Cards and Counter
The Montessori method emphasizes that each child is a unique individual who develops according to his or her own abilities. Faithfully adhering to this fundamental principle, this application allows a high degree of customization, with multiple selectable settings in each of the six activities. This allows a teacher or parent to fit this application to each child's learning level as they increase their number skills.
"Approach to Montessori - Numbers" incorporates animations, colors, and sounds into fun and colorful games to keep a child's attention and to provide a stimulating environment for them to grasp concepts quickly, yet at their own pace.
Creator Henry Ton of Brain Counts said, "My son had a really hard time getting a hold of the basic number concepts when he was younger. I guess it was natural for me to incorporate my son's educational needs into my work. The result is a program that is far more in demand and usable than I first imagined. It has been exciting to see emails from grateful parent who have begun using the app to help their children grasp basic number concepts and having fun along the way."
