Currently featured in Apple's "Everything changes with iPad" campaign showing how much learning has changed with this very powerful tool!

Montessori Letter Sounds is a multi award-winning app to get your children on the road to reading!

It works in 4 easy steps:
- From the age of 3: “I spy” to play sound games.
- Around 4 years old: “Letter sounds” to memorize the letter sounds and shape.
- Between 4 and 5: “Mix and match” to bring together the two first steps.
- Around 4 1/2 years old: “Sound it out” to write their first words using a moveable alphabet.

All four steps are included in this version but two games are locked at first and get unlocked as the children play and win marbles. This ensures progressive learning.

The settings offer:
- Script, Cursive or Capital letters
- *Our unique "foreign language" option, which enables children to play with the letter sounds in one of the four languages while listening to the instructions in their native language.

Children also benefit from a “Toolbox” offering:
- A phonetic alphabet
- A notebook
- A sandbox to trace letters freely
- An image box (great for vocabulary)

This version includes English, Spanish, French, German and Italian with a unique "foreign language" option to start learning another language!

In each step, children will find a learning activity and a game to help them put their learning into practice. Self-correction is encouraged throughout the app to increase self-confidence. The system keeps track of marbles won by each player. Marbles are used to unlock games and levels and to stimulate learning.

Very good, but....

It is great for my little one, but he gets bored rather easily, so it isn’t his favourite app.

3 yo & 5 yo like

They both like it. Fun games. Very easy and basic info. Only complaint is they need to actually *read* the button that’s says “play”, not intuitive to go from one window to another. Although maybe that’s by design. Other reading games have a simple “play” icon button to advance. They need a little help to get going and move through this game but that’s good for all of us for me to be involved. They’re learning! And that’s the goal!

Bundle-can't download

Haven't used the apps yet, this rating is based solely on the fact that I could not download the bundle, I had to download each app individually. I kept receiving the following error "App is not compatible with your device." Because of this, I had to pay full price for each app and did not get the discounted bundle price.

Developer/Programmer: Please Fix ASAP

Note: the apps work fine on my device and definitely ARE compatible.
