With the Montessorium’s Intro to Letters app your child can hear how the letter sounds, see how you would write it, and then they get to trace the letter with their finger. The lowercase letters sound focuses on phonetics instead of letter names.
In the app, there is a phonogram section with 15 different combinations. Your child will hear the phonetics, see how they are written, and then get the chance to trace.
In the app your child connects the sounds of the lowercase letters with their uppercase counterparts. Each slide is the lowercase letter and its phonetics and then the capital letter with the correct name.
In the Montessorium Intro to Letters app, your child can hear how the capital letter sounds, see how it is written, and then get the chance to trace the letter with their finger. The objective of this activity is to acquire a knowledge of the names and symbols of the capital letters.
The most unique feature about the Intro to Letters app is the Soundcards. The special recording section helps your child learn sounds, phonograms and names by allowing them to practice saying it themselves.
