Interactivity is an important ingredient when involving learners in any learning process.
The TinyTap app...
   - provides a free way to start building that interactivity into lessons.
   - is a simple but immensely powerful concept where static images and photos can be combined with recorded audio and digital hotspots to create fully interactive games and lessons.

Try it out, it's FREE

“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!
