[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - Get 50% off Montessori Letter Sounds this week-end to celebrate the Parents' Choice Gold Award!
Les Trois Elles Interactive, a small independent French developer set up by two Montessori Teachers and a Marketing Executive is proud to announce that it has received a Parents' Choice Gold Award for the second year in a row!
Last September, Montessori Numberland, the beautiful app that takes children through a journey to learn numbers from 0 to 9 was one of the Gold Medal winners. September 2012, Montessori Letter Sounds, a very comprehensive "Phonics" app for pre-schoolers and first graders also receives the highest level of Award.
"Les Trois Elles, developers of previous Parents' Choice Award winning app Montessori Numberland, have released Montessori Letter Sounds, another standout app. This time, the developer aims to teach early literacy skills to 3-to-7-year-olds using the Montessori Method. Montessori Letter sounds is a layered introduction to reading that children will enjoy using. Families with young readers will appreciate its well-paced and engaging lessons."
Montessori Letter Sounds is divided in 4 games: I spy, Letter Sounds, Mix & Match and Sound it out. When children first login, only two of the games are unlocked. To ensure a good learning progression, children have to earn marbles by playing the sound games before they can move on to harder games.
The app also contains a "tool box" with:
* A phonetic alphabet in script, cursive and upper case letters
* A notebook to practice writing on white or lined "paper"
* A sandbox to trace letters and "erase" them using a rake
* An image box to learn lots of new words and enrich vocabulary
The app can be used at home or in class as its user interface can have more than 30 different users.Montessori Letter Sounds is an iPad only app. The iPhone version will be released before the end of the year.
A French version of the app exists: Montessori Letter Sounds Learn French. This app offers a very exclusive feature for young English speakers: they can listen to the instructions in English, while learning French words and French letter sounds!
This Award arrives during a busy week as Les Trois Elles Interactive also released their newest app called Montessori Geometry, a shape learning app for 5-10 years old that teaches 23 different 2D and 3D shapes as well as many fun games. Montessori Geometry was immediately featured in Apple's New & Noteworthy.
All of Les Trois Elles Interactive's apps comply with Common Core State Standards in Preschool Math and Literacy and children love Tam & Tao, their twin character heroes.
