Addition + Play = Making Math Fun!

Aimed at 6 to 8 year olds this educational math game will help kids review concepts and improve their numerical skills whilst having fun!

Did you know that addition is commutative, or that if you move one number from one side of the equal sign to the other, its sign changes?

Learn Addition by playing with the numbers and discovering all these rules by yourself, at your own pace.

Create your profile to challenge your friends! Win coins, unlock all the 20 levels, try to beat your own record and win the most challenging achievements to become a master of addition!

And, at the end of the game…SURPRISE! A fabulous certificate made especially for you to send to your parents and hang on the wall!

Come and check it out! I’d love to play and learn from you!

Mobile Montessori is proud to present the Movable Alphabet!

The movable alphabet allows children to express themselves with words and phrases prior to mastering the skill to write with paper and pencil!

Children can phonetically sound out words, one letter at a time to build words. The app includes over 40 images of simple words, along with audio pronunciations and instructions, for children to practice with. Additional word sets are available via InApp Purchase!

One unique feature in this app, are the buttons in the box above each letter. Children can touch the buttons to hear the sound of the letters, giving them the ability to, “search” for the sound they are thinking of to build their word!

You will appreciate the simple format without distractions and gimmicks! This app was developed and approved by a Montessori teacher with over 40 years experience teaching children.

Monty is BACK!

Learn your multiplication tables in a BRAND NEW QUEST!

It’s fun and exciting and challenging as Monty the mouse heads out into the world on his never ending quest for cheese!

This is the follow up to the hugely successful Monty’s Quest which is being used in thousands of schools and homes in the UK, USA, Australia and lots of other countries.

The aim of the game:
You will be shown a calculation to work out and if you get the calculation correct, Monty will take a step towards the top of the hill to claim his cheese. If you take too long to answer the question, Monty will slide back down the hill towards the bottom again!

Levels of difficulty:
Practice – practice the multiplication table of your choice and during the game, Monty will NOT slide back down the hill – so you can take your time a little more without penalty.

Beginner – choose the multiplication table you would like to work with and the slide speed is set to very slow.

Intermediate – the slide speed is set to medium on this level.

Expert – this is the ultimate level for multiplication fans. Can you get to the top of the hill and achieve a perfect score?

Stars to collect:
On each level, there are 3 stars to collect! Depending on how quickly you answer and how accurate your answers are, Monty will receive stars at the end of each level.

Can you master all of the levels and collect 3 stars on all of Monty’s Ultimate Quest

**** Used by school systems worldwide and educators of autistic children! ****

This app is a pre-language exercise found in the Montessori classroom to help children understand the concept of opposites. Thirty different opposites are featured in this app, such as big & small, hot & cold, up & down, etc. Concepts like this enrich children’s language and help them express themselves.

The app shows photographs and illustrations of each opposite, the written form of the words and, with the push of a button, the child will hear the word aloud!

This app was co-developed and approved by an AMI certified Montessori teacher with over forty years experience. Your child will enjoy learning the opposites and the app will nicely complement their classroom education.

Please look for our other Montessori apps in the App Store as well!

a4cwsn's insight:

Sorting for Early Science is a fun educational app for use in schools or at home. It builds on children’s natural curiosity for objects and animals in the world around them. Is a pear a fruit of a vegetable? Does a penguin have wings?

Having the ability to classify, or sort, items is an important scientific skill specified in the early years curriculum. This colourful, fun app helps children develop this ability, whether they are working alone or in small groups. It provokes lively classroom discussion, with children asking each other if they have seen a bat.or working out how to tell a fruit from a vegetable.
Children classify items according to whether they are:
•Animals or Plants
•Types of Animals
•Animals with Wings or No Wings
•Number of Legs
•Fruit or Vegetable
•Living or Not Living
This is done by dragging objects from the top of the screen into one of the labelled circles on the screen. For some topics, there are overlapping circles for items that can go into more than one circle. There is a reporting option to allow adults to monitor the progress of children. Children can build their basic vocabulary, either in English, or in Spanish as the app can be switched between both languages.

 

Sorting is part of a series of science activities which have been developed with consideration to follow the guidelines of the National Curriculum in the UK, and the Common Core Curriculum in the United States.

Sorting has been created by Storm Educational, who have over 20 years experience of creating educational software for schools around the world. Our software is detailed on the Storm website at www.stormeducational.co.uk, and more science fun can be found on the We Love Science!
