Thanks for using School Writing and helping to make it one of the most popular education apps. We added a fun ‘abc colouring in’ activity as optional on/off via settings.

School Writing contains the education-approved handwriting fonts, including individual cursive letters used in UK Schools.

Brilliant!! ***** by Kasia_London - Version 1.3
I've been looking for an app like this. It's got a cursive font which is used in schools in the UK and offers a complete writing programme from the beginners until KS2. It's fantastic!!

excellent ***** by SusieMla - Version 1.0
The app is very impressive, comprehensive, and heavily customizable. I've found it to be a great tool for helping my child learn. I can only recommend it!

A must have for every parent and teacher ***** by mrsnic123 - Version 1.5
Students just love this app. They love the different colour choices and the replay button. Definitely seen positive results with students with fine motor difficulties. Congratulations on a great app.

Must-Have for all schools ***** by Aunty_Vegemite - Version 1.5
Brilliant App that is more than just a hand writing App. It can also be used in just about any curriculum area. Incredibly easy to make my own word lists with pictures and sounds.

School Writing is a fully-customizable and feature-packed app that provides students with plenty of practice to perfect their writing of letters, words and numbers using their correct UK school font (and lines) on the iPad.

Students intuitively trace pre-handwriting shapes, uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, words or whiteboard images that you import with the touch of a finger. Hear and see letters, words and numbers with customised associated images and sounds.

School Writing allows the teacher or parent to create lessons using written instructions, unique images and audio instructions, to which the student can respond using written and audio recordings. This 'open scaffold' enables the lessons to be words, numbers or symbols and extends the use of School Writing far beyond early education. Completed lessons can be automatically emailed to the teacher or parent with the student’s tracings and recordings included.

With tracing accuracy turned to infants, easy, medium or hard, the students are rewarded with a half or full star depending on their accuracy. They are given three attempts before automatically advancing to the next letter or number. The default teacher tracings or your customisations of the teacher tracings are used as the basis for checking the students tracing accuracy. This allows for complete flexibility over stroke direction for left hand writers.

The ‘Whiteboard’ section allows a teacher to draw or import images, with unique audio instructions for tracing or interacting with. Students can trace and record audio answers. ‘Whiteboard’ is the pre handwriting activities. Each student can have a unique profile.

Too large

I bought this app to help my 5 year old practice his handwriting. Having the practice letters so large makes it unnecessarily difficult. No one writes that large, and for those that struggle with fine motor control, having the letters be more reasonably sized would be helpful. Having the option to change the size would be ideal.

Great app

This is a great app, it allows me to make specific lessons for my daughter. The negative thing is that when I'm imputing the custom words and sounds, the app crashes very frequently. So the only way to work with it, is to input two or three words at the time and then get out of the app so that I don't lose anything.
Having said that, it's such a good app that I don't mind it crashing so frequently but I hope that this problem will be fixed in an update.

School handwriting

Really love this app. It is adaptable for teaching and practising handwriting formation, no matter which style of formation your school teaches. I always use the no entry stroke version even when I need to teach letters with entry strokes for those children who struggle to understand the concept of entry strokes and the basic shape of the letter. I just tell them to start on the line and sweep up to the start of the letter. The children love it too.
The only niggle I have is that it always crashes when you ask it to replay. Please sort this out ASAP and it will be perfect.
