Anyone with children of school age will probably be familiar with the famous Montessori learning method. Montessori Crosswords is an app designed by L’Escapadou studio founder Pierre Abel after he saw how much his daughter enjoyed playing with a Montessori picture-spelling activity. Beginner or fluent readers will be able to use the multi-level, auto-corrective crosswords to develop their writing/reading skills by building more or less phonetically complex words from a set of pictures. Packed with animations and sounds, Montessori Crosswords also features an animated Moveable Alphabet to entertain younger children and help them learn the letters.
The app can be used by children as young as three, and up to ten or even older to improve and reinforce their spelling and general literacy skills. The game is auto-corrective, and the three increasingly difficult levels are based on the word series defined in Montessori teaching according to the difficulty of each word.
You can download Montessori Crosswords for $4.99/£2.99 from the iPad App Store, in the Education category.
