    Intro to Letters is designed to help kids learn letters and letter sounds and also learn to trace, read, write, and record letter sounds, names, and phonograms, based on the proven methodology of Montessori. It's particularly useful for kids who need extra help, such as special needs students. Designed to help kids learn letters and letter sounds, Intro to Letters, by Montessorium  is focused and clean, without animation, rewards, or other gimmicks. Kids trace letters with their fingers and hear the letter names and sounds in an activity that mimics Montessori sandpaper letters. The app includes upper and lower case letters, as well as 15 two-letter phonograms. Kids can also record the letter sounds and names if their devices are equipped with microphones.
