Children love “Touch and Write” – now, there’s “Touch and Write Storybook”!
“Touch and Write Storybook” was designed by classroom teachers and it is unique: on each page of the story, children master the story vocabulary using our engaging “Touch and Write” reading and writing activities. By the end of the story, children will have mastered almost 200 important vocabulary words, and learned the phonics pronunciations of each word’s letters!
In the Writing Room, children write the words from the current page of the story using fun textures like shaving cream, ketchup or jello. They learn the phonics pronunciation of each word’s letters as they write. In the Reading Room, children master reading these vocabulary words by following directions and giving the correct words to Goldilocks, Papa, Mama or Baby Bear.
In addition, “Touch and Write Storybook” includes the interactive features you expect: children can listen to the lines of the story as they are highlighted, children can tap and hear individual words, and children can tap around the illustration to learn new vocabulary. They can also take Papa’s Quiz by reading Papa’s word and tapping the correct part of the illustration. The storybook includes both “Read to Me” and “Read Myself” modes.
Just for fun, four interaction pages are spaced throughout the story. Help Goldilocks knock on the door – but watch out for characters from the wrong story! Help Goldilocks eat up her porridge – better blow on it to let it cool! Help Goldilocks rock in her rocking chair – can you rock her just right? And help Goldilocks test the beds – the sounds will tell you if a bed is too hard, too soft, or just right!
Prepare your child to become a strong reader and writer – the “Touch and Write” way!

What comes in Between?
Each activity allows children to fill in the columns of numbers in any order they choose. Just touch a blue square in one of the columns and then find the appropriate number in the tray to complete the sequence.
Simple activities like this help solidify basic mathematical concepts, such as sequencing, required for all future studies in math!
This activity is a time-tested, teaching tool used in many Montessori classrooms around the world. The app itself was co-developed and approved by an AMI certified Montessori teacher with over forty years experience.

“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!

“A unique Math App that will challenge everyone from 5-99 with 1000 puzzles and 40 levels of difficulty, a4cwsn”
Math Rings FREE is a mathematics game containing simple number equations. Every puzzle in this game has total of four equations to be solved.
There are 17 cells arranged in a circular system. Eight cells in the outer most ring, eight cells in the middle ring and one cell at the center.
The goal of the puzzle is to arrange the circular cells in such a way that all rows solve a mathematical equation. The equations can be solved from “left to right”, “right to left”, “top to bottom”, or “bottom to top”.
The centermost cell is stationary. Cells of middle ring can be swapped with other cells from middle ring; similarly, cells of outermost ring can be swapped with other cells in the outermost ring.
When an equation is solved, the corresponding row cells turn green in color. A selected puzzle is solved once all the equations in that puzzle are solved.

Intro to Colors, by MontessoriumBy a4cwsn On March 16, 2014 · Add Comment “A beautifully put together App that will introduce your child to the wonders of color, a4cwsn ”
With Intro to Colors, the world of colors comes alive. Inspired by the famous Montessori Color tablets, this dynamic and interactive app will guide your children through an appreciation of color, from the concrete to the abstract.
YOUR CHILD WILL LEARN
· The basic foundations of color
Intro to Colors is a universal app that will work on iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch devices. The app is optimized for iPhone 5 and retina screens. The app features these activities:
Learn to identify the primary colors, in a series of guided, interactive exercises using the color tablets. Your child will drag, match and tap on red, yellow and blue.
Learn to identify, select and name the secondary colors, in a number of engaging activities using the color tablets.
Learn to appreciate gradients with the color wheel and by arranging the color tablets from light-to-dark or dark-to-light.
Unleash your creativity on this blank canvas with this painting exercise. In the Montessori classroom, we provide only three colors (red, yellow, and blue) when painting. This constraint empowers children to mix colors and create new ones. Your child will learn that the three primary colors serve as the foundation for all colors.
Explore these creative artist scenes in this seek-and-find activity. Your child will listen for, find, and select the correct color as a fun way to recap their understanding of color.
