★Adaptée d’une activé éducative Montessori, cette application permet à vos enfants de 3 à 7/8 ans d’écrire leurs premiers mots et de perfectionner leur orthographe en s’amusant !

L’application comprend 240 mots avec illustration et prononciation audio, ainsi que l'adaptation du fameux alphabet mobile Montessori, dont toutes les lettres sont dotées d’une fonction sonore pour écouter le son qui leur est le plus couramment associé.

★Qu’est-ce que mes enfants vont apprendre ?

Pour les plus jeunes :
➜ Apprentissage de l’alphabet
➜ Association du son et des lettres (on entend le phonème le plus courant de chaque lettre quand on la touche)
➜ Apprentissage des différents types de lettres (cursive, script minuscule et majuscule)
➜ Initiation à l’écriture (association de plusieurs sons/lettres pour former un mot) avec des mots simples phonétiquement

Pour les plus avancés :
➜ Renforcement de l’orthographe avec des mots plus complexes

★Mais ils vont aussi s’amuser ?

Oui! De plus, les enfants aiment déplacer avec les lettres qui s’animent lorsqu’on les manipule, et adorent les 21 animations interactives qui s’affichent lorsqu’on a fini d’écrire un mot !

En résumé :

★ 240 mots avec images et prononciation
★ Son des letters (phonème)
★ Choix des mots selon leur difficulté (3 niveaux)
★ Des conseils détaillés pour l’utilisation pédagogique du jeu
★ 21 effets visuels interactifs et colorés (comme un feu d’artifice étoilé) affichés lorsqu’on a fini d’écrire un mot. Vous pouvez interagir avec ces effets en touchant l’écran !
★ L’Alphabet mobile Montessori est aussi utilisable en activé libre pour s’amuser avec les lettres et construire tous les mots que l’on veut.
★ Choix de l’alphabet : cursif, minuscule, majuscule

Customer Reviews

Good app for children

What I'd like to see maybe as an option is to have the word spelled as a model. It would make it more interesting for younger children who do not know yet how words are spelled.
Crashes a few times also (once word is complete and you click on the "next" button)
