Parents are provided with a tracking screen which is helpful for evaluating child’s progress.The logging system allows the app to be used by more than 1 child without loosing their scores and rewards given for correct answers.

* knowing the sequence of numbers from 1 to 10,
* counting up and down,
* understanding the relationship between numbers (1,2,3…) and ordinals (first, second, third…),
* making 10,
* learning halves, quarters and thirds; recognition of symmetrical division,
* recognizing left from right.

Love to Count by Pirate Trio aims to encourage your child to discover and understand maths, rather than learn it by heart.

### Description

Love to Read by Pirate Trio is an iPhone and iPad app for children who are just starting their adventure with reading, designed to lead them through the steps of getting to know words and understanding how to apply them.

Inspired by Montessori teaching methods, this app allows your child to play with ‘deconstructing’ words by shaking the iPhone or iPad to scatter the letters. The challenge is to then put the letters back into place so that the word is re-constructed again. While attempting to put the word together, the app teaches its young users how letters sound individually as well as in fixed combinations such as: sh, ch, th, ph, ck, ai, ee, oo. Learning the relationship between each letter and its sound is believed to be an excellent foundation for fluent reading skills.

Once the word is successfully re-constructed, the app demonstrates the meaning and possible use of that word in a sentence, to expand your child’s vocabulary and general knowledge. In addition to the simultaneous reading and displaying of each sentence, the app allows users to hear individual words when they are touched. The Love to Read by Pirate Trio app enhances memory via visual and audio stimulation, which conforms to the Montessori principle that learning is most effective when it takes place through as many senses possible.

Children using this app do not just learn how to read and write the names of many common and useful items, but also learn where these things belong, what they look like, how they may be used in practice and what their most important features are. Love to Read by Pirate Trio is therefore recommended for home schooling.
