App description

This App scaffolds children’s handwriting by practising letter, number and word writing. The App can be personalised so that your child practices the correct font or writing format for their state.

Reviewers comments

A collection of activities for handwriting, this App includes activities for pre-writing where children trace shapes; it also includes activities for writing numbers, lower case and upper case letters and words.

As this App focuses on handwriting this reviewer felt that using the device with a stylus was beneficial as the child was then also practising pencil grip while playing. In user testing children using a stylus found the App easier to use. It should be noted that some children felt it was “handwriting practice” rather than a game. Teachers using this were pleased that the App focused on and had in-built scaffolds to promote correct writing formation. Further, the ability to review progress and to set the correct font for each state was seen as advantageous.
