Product Description

Based on the proven Montessori learning method, this app helps kids develop their reading, writing and spelling skills by building words from a set of 320 word-image-audio-phonics combinations using a phonics-enabled Movable Alphabet.

The iPad/iPhone version, Montessori Crosswords, was mentioned in the New York Times and Wired's GeekDad, and was awarded "Editor's Choice Award for Excellence in Design" by Children Technology Review.

Montessori Words helps kids learn and understand two fundamental concepts:
First, the app helps kids understand that words are made up of sounds/phonemes (phonemic awareness). For each word, kids can touch the empty rectangles where letters must be dragged to complete the word, and hear the sound the corresponding letter will produce.
Secondly, the app helps kids memorize the phonics associated to letters, by providing a phonics-enabled alphabet where kids can touch each letter and hear the associated phonic.


Montessori Words allows you to select words according to their difficulty or sound categories:
Level 1 displays a 3-letter word with no difficulty for beginning readers (CVC words)
Levels 2 and 3 bring more complex words that contains more complex phonics (as long vowels sounds or blends).
44 sound categories : choose words that contains a specific sound (e.g. long a, “k” sound,...)


To create an enjoyable experience, the app also includes sounds and animations and, in particular, interactive visual effects that are displayed after a word is completed.

The app also features an activity with only the Movable Alphabet that allows open-ended activities for young children learning their letters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant app 23 Jan 2013

I bought this app for my 6 year old daughter. She really got into it and it is helping her immensely to understand letters, words, sounds and spelling. She loves spending time spelling words, she takes it as a game, the phonetics method is excellent and it has greatly improved her reading and spelling. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad game 15 Sep 2013

I bought this 'game' for my four year old son. So far we have only played it once and I think I liked it better than he did! It held his attention for a short while but he wanted to move on to something else pretty quickly. This may have been my fault for putting it on after another words type game when he was wanting to play something else....I will persevere as I think it is great, good quality and the accent is fairly neutral. Worth a go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic - my 5 year old Loves this one 18 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase
This is my five year old daughter's favourite app. She often asks to play this one & loves the 'reward' screens of floating stars/hearts/glitter that you can move around with your finger. Unlike a lot of early spelling apps this is relevant to UK children learning phonics and the accent/pronounciation isn't as 'american' as with a lot of others so less word confusion. In the absense of a good early years spelling app in UK English, this is the top of my list. I've recommended it to the school.
