Designed for children ages 18 months through 7 years, Plume’s World allows kids to choose activities, based on Montessori methods. Users will find three different levels corresponding to three educational steps and two differents modes.
Quiz: A fun quiz that asks the child to match words and images. In Level 1, the quiz focuses on discovering new vocabulary. In Level 2, users tap on the Christmas image that matches the written word. In Level 3, the challenge is reversed and users must find the written word that corresponds to the image. Each area includes five questions, giving kids a chance to learn and practice more than 40 new words. Users must demonstrate mastery of a word before a new one is introduced.
Puzzles: Each word is available as a puzzle for the youngest users
Memory game: Have fun with this memory challenge featuring three levels of difficulty. Users are asked to match written words with images as well as audio words with their written counterparts.
Link the pair: Use your finger to link the matching pictures in Level 1, or the word and the corresponding image in Levels 2 and 3. An audio hint is available in Level 2, but is not accessible in Level 3, so that beginning readers have more of a challenge.
Word Scramble: Kids unscramble letters to form words. Hints are provided at Level 2, but not at Level 3 for an increased challenge.
Bubbles game: Is your child quick enough to pop the bubbles with the indicated images before they float off into the sky? Available at all three levels.
Book: For younger children, each word featured in the app is highlighted in an interactive book.
Sticker game: Each success gives your child stars that will be transformed into new stickers. Users interact with the stickers, learn to move them about on the screen, and pinch in and out to scale them. Available at all three levels.
A settings page allows parents to choose the app’s language (English or French), mute the music ...
This app, built by a team of parents and professional educators, will do so much to help your child ages 2-7 grow academically. Kids use the app independently, and have so much fun with it that they don’t even know how much they’re learning.
Available in English and French.
