Educational Tool For The iPad
Montessori Compound Words makes matching root words to make compound words fun and challenging! Using a chain/step puzzle format, children (and adults!) enjoy making compound words to unlock the beautiful, original photos of real objects matching the words.

Visit MontessoriTech at www.MontessoriTech.net and learn more about Compound Words and our other educational apps.

Download our apps and observe the wonder of learning with ease.

Children will:
- practice their reading skills
- test their compound word vocabulary
- challenge their puzzle skills, as they try to make the intended matches
- learn new compound words through process of elimination of the words they do know
- enjoy matching the words they have made with the beautiful photos.

Options include:
- choosing an easier setting of only 5 pairs to match, or a more challenging set of 10
- selecting the level of difficulty by allowing for repeat root words or not (for example: snowball, basketball)
- a “show errors” setting for easier problem solving or to figure out an especially challenging puzzle

This app, like all MontessoriTech apps, has been designed by experienced Montessori educators. It is true to the Montessori principles of: isolation of quality, simplicity of form, and beauty of design. It is a truly pleasurable experience for children to manipulate these words and photographs on the iPad screen. The reward is in the work itself!

This app is meant to be used in a classroom or teaching setting to teach and practice compound words. While some children enjoy working with this app independently, many children benefit from direct adult involvement in solving the puzzles and discovering the words together.

After working with the app please give us a review.

Clear fun!

This is a great app! The word puzzles are more challenging than it seems they would be, even for an adult. The five word setting is a great way to make it a bit easier. It is more of an activity to do with a younger child, than a way to entertain them. It is fun to do together. I liked seeing how he thought through the work. He loves doing the picture matching himself. Beautiful real photos!

You found a niche, now make it fun!

As a teacher for many years this app has a great start, why, because no one else has taken on compound words. But since I work with kids I'll tell you with a lot of know how, no kid will play with this app unless you force them too. I taught a lesson on compound words and the apps was great if I hover behind the child that was using it. This app is a nice step away from connect the dots on ditto sheets, but for two bucks I can teach a lot more. Make the app more exciting and then we'll talk.

Another winner from MontessoriTech

This is a great way to have kids practice reading skills and learn new vocabulary at the same time. The pictures were very helpful to teach my son learn the meaning of words that were new to him. And as with the developer's other apps, the interface is totally intuitive - especially to any Montessori kid.
