My 4-year-old son’s reading skills are really taking off, and I’m pretty sure it has much to do with the educational apps we have on our iphones/ipad. It’s really cool how interactive these games are and how much the kids really pick up from them. I’ve never been a fan of video games for kids, and I know that ipad apps are not a far cry from video games… but when they’re educational and when you see how much your kids are learning, it’s pretty hard to resist them.
Our newest discovery is the Montessori Letter Sounds App from Les Trois Elles Interactive, a French company creating educational (and beautiful) apps for kids. This might be our favourite app so far. It’s extremely educational but also really, really fun. The app is based on the Montessori method of teaching kids to read and includes letter tracing activities, pronunciation exercises, and loads of fun learning games. It’s also tastefully done (I did say it was made by a French company!).
The app is available in English and French, and they also have an App for learning numbers. View their website for more details, and click here to see a demo video.
This app looks really good, beautifully made. I love the principles of Montessori, my girls both attended a montessori preschool. Do you have any recommendations for early readers? My girls are 5 but I seem to be unable to find them apps that suit. Thank you. Jackie
This app would also be great for a 5-year-old. My 4-year-old son loves it and so does my 6-year-old, even though he already knows his letter sounds. I suppose it depends on your daughter’s reading skills. I’ll try to find others and let you know what I find…

Hi courtney, there is no need to look for me please, i just thought you might know one off the top of your head. I am going to get the montessori letter sounds, my girls were really excited when I showed them the trailer. Thank you, Jackie
it’s too bad that it seems this is only for the ipad for now…
Loving these. even my 7 year old enjoys a bit of play when the four year old allows it 😉
[…] still loving the educational Montessori Letter Sounds app from Les Trois Elles, and were thrilled to discover they have just released a new animation app […]
