“An excellent App that helps children learn their ABC’s and the order of the Alphabet, A4cwsn”

 

This app is a fun and educational activity for children to gain practice identifying the letters of the alphabet and placing them in alphabetical order.

 

The app includes three detailed activities:

 

1. Learn & Review: Place the letters in order and conduct a review of them by touching each letter as the name is heard aloud.

 

2. Practice the Alphabet: Place the letters in order without the control letters as a guide.

 

3. Fill in the Gaps: Cycle through multiple activities of placing the missing letters in place to complete the alphabet.

This app was co-designed and approved by a Montessori teacher with over 40 years experience teaching children! Enjoy this app as an introduction to the Mobile Montessori line of educational apps!

Animals of Africa – A Montessori Approach to Geography

a4cwsn's insight:
“So much information in one amazing app, if you want to increase your knowledge of Africa and the animals that live there then this is the app for you, A4cwsn”

Introducing the first in a series of apps that will help children and adults learn about the animals of each continent and help raise awareness of endangered species!

This app features the animals of Africa. You will learn where each animal lives on the African continent, several facts about each animal, and their current conservation status.

Lesson #1 contains the Information Center with all the facts:

Touch an animal in the photo-strip to change the featured animal on the page. Touch the Map button to see the animal’s habitat highlighted on the map. Touch the Speaker button to hear the correct pronunciation of the animal name. Touch the Definition button to see and hear a detailed description of the animal as well as the Animal Facts box, containing dimensions, weight and conservation information. A list of Conservation definitions can be seen by touching the button on the top bar.

In Lessons #2 & #3 assemble the African Habitat maps by finding the animal prompted by the shown habitat or name. This activity expands the Continent Box activity found in the Montessori classrooms

In the first habitat map lesson children have to look for the animal that corresponds to the name shown at the top, as well as, the habitat shown on the map. When they touch the correct animal card, a representative animal shape will transfer to the map as the name of the animal is heard aloud.

In the second habitat map lesson children have to look for the animal that corresponds to the shown habitat only! This is more challenging, however, you will be pleasantly surprised how fast you will learn to memorize the animal habitats!

In Lesson #4 drag and place the animal puzzle pieces to the map. The locations correspond to their habitat and the name of the animal is heard aloud when it is placed correctly.

This Montessori application was co-developed and approved by an AMI certified, Montessori teacher with over forty years experience educating children!

We sincerely thank you for your downloads and suggestions!

This app begins a new series of Geography Apps for us! We sincerely thank you for your support of our other Montessori applications and hope you enjoy this one!

Words that Go with Richard Scarry’s Busytown Cars

a4cwsn's insight:
“Richard Scarry’s Busytown Cars are a fun way to introduce vehicles, spelling, and letter order while enjoying the amazing art work, A4cwsn”

Richard Scarry’s delightfully wacky cars come to life in this interactive educational game for kids ages 2-6. When the Apple Car arrives at a Busytown stoplight, kids spell a-p-p-l-e to help it zoom through the intersection. With five playing modes, including letter matching, early phonics and spelling, this app grows with your child.

Classic favorites like the Banana Mobile, Pickle Car and of course Lowly Worm’s Apple Car are among the 48 unique vehicles children can help zoom through the Busytown intersection. Brave Officer Flossy is hot on the trail of that bad driver Dingo. And look out for Goldbug along for the ride.

As children seek new challenges, parents can adjust the difficulty level.

At Level 1, children learn to recognize and match letters, and experience putting letters together to make words.
Level 2 maintains the skills from level 1 and adds left to right ordering to encourage children to match letters from left to right.
Level 3 provides exposure to early phonics. Gameplay is similar to Level 2, but now children can hear letter sounds come together to make words.
Level 4 challenges kids to figure out the order of the letters based on their sounds, without visual hints.
Level 5 brings in big words and sight words to help early readers practice spelling.

Be sure to check out our other popular educational play apps including First Letters and Phonics, First Words Animals, and First Words Deluxe.

March of the Dinosaurs.

a4cwsn's insight:

March of the Dinosaurs is an interactive storybook that comes alive in your hands with highly realistic 3D dinosaurs that spin and zoom at the touch of your fingers.

Another offering from Touch Press (creators of The Elements and Solar System for iPad), March of the Dinosaurs takes the reader on a journey for survival, fraught with danger – blizzards, volcanic eruptions and deadly predators. Set in the Arctic 70 million years ago, Scar, a young Edmontosaurus, embarks on his first thousand-mile migration. It is a world of extremes: hot summers with 24-hour sunlight are replaced by freezing winters with continuous night.

Follow the story page by page, either reading at your own pace or with the text dynamically highlighted and spoken by Dr Who actor Kerry Shale. Use your iPad to meet the cast: 10 realistic 3D animated dinosaurs that can be rotated and zoomed, featuring scientific fact files about each of the creatures. High definition digital animation, specially produced by the team behind the National Geographic special “Escape of the Dinosaurs”, brings alive dramatic key moments in the story.
