_________________________________
Based on the Montessori* method, Montessori* Letter Sounds works in 4 steps:
- From the age of 3: “I spy” to play sound games.
- Around 4 years old: “Letter sounds” to memorize the letter sounds and shape.
- Between 4 and 5: “Mix and match” to bring together the two first steps.
- Around 4 1/2 years old: “Sound it out” to write their first words using a moveable alphabet.

All four steps are included in this version but two games are locked at first and get unlocked as the children play and win marbles. This ensures progressive learning.

In each step children will find a learning activity and a game to help them put their learning into practice. Self-correction is encouraged throughout the app to increase self-confidence. The system keeps track of marbles won by each player. Marbles are used to unlock games and levels and to stimulate learning.

Children also benefit from a “Toolbox” offering:
- A phonetic alphabet
- A notebook
- A sandbox to trace letters freely
- An image box (great for vocabulary)

*The Montessori Method is based on sensorial learning. Its main goals are to develop children’s autonomy and self-confidence.
**The Discovery of the Child, M. Montessori
