When you think of Montessori, you don’t usually think of an App. However, I’ve come across two educational apps that will make you consider incorporating your iphone or iPad into your Montessori lessons.
Montessori Crosswords is for the iPad and iPhone. It features a moveable alphabet, allows you to focus on just one sound, and allows you to select from 3 levels. Level 1: simple words with 3 sounds, Level 2: words with consonant blend, and Level 3: words of any complexity.
Intro to Math utilizes favorite Montessori Math manipulatives. This interactive app uses Montessori methodology through the demonstration of each activity before the child is asked to complete the task/activity. Intro to Math was also featured in Apple’s iPad Commercials in their “We Believe” apple commerical to introduce the iPad 2.
definitely a timely post for all those that received iPads or iPhones for Christmas!
