Have fun releasing the Dino's from their eggs as you learn your letters!
Dinosaur Letters allows your child to practice letter forming in both cursive (joined up) and simple pre cursive form.
Letters are sounded out in either US or UK English phonics to allow your child to develop skills of breaking down words. You can choose your cursive style in settings.
Completion of capital letters reveals a simple phonics based spelling game. Completion of either style of lower case letters is rewarded by a dot-to-dot puzzle which reveals the dinosaur in the egg.

The British Dyslexia association recommend that children learn the continuous cursive style. The cursive style has some significant advantages for Dyslexic students.
The key advantages to this system are:
* By making each letter in one movement, children’s hands develop a ‘physical memory’ of it, making it easier to produce the correct shape;
* Because letters and words flow from left to right, children are less likely to reverse letters which are typically difficult (like b/d or p/q);
* There is a clearer distinction between capital letters and lower case;
* The continuous flow of writing ultimately improves speed and spelling.
Thanks for all of the feedback, we are updating to make the choice of cursive style clearer and have Optimised for iPhone 6 and 6+

Really looking engaging
Developer Response ,
Glad your enjoying the game.
Great writing app
Having tried a few of these this is the best, with a good margin for error around the letters it doesn't get too frustrating. Also the bonus dinosaur games make it more interesting. Now to try with a stylus!
A useful fun tool for children to practice cursive letters.
Has a few issues though which stops it being 5 stars, the ? button doesn't work, the cursive X pattern isn't correct (you end up drawing a line under it) and the pencil pointer is too big (you can't see very well where your moving it, especially the drawing section).
