Best app I have seen for learning cursive!

My son is now learning cursive, we have tried all the different free apps out there. This app is worth every dime! The best thing about this app is that it tells the child what letter they are practicing and also demonstrates how to write it. Most of the time with the free apps my son was not sure what letter he was practicing because it only had pointers to how to write the letter and wouldn't state what he letter was and didn't show how to draw it real time. The app is beautifully illustrated and fun for my son. Thank you so much for this app. Parents look no further, this app is the all in one place to help your child practice cursive. Being able to add your own cursive words and to record it with your voice is awesome! It even has a print option for your custom lists with the dot to dot lines to let your child practice on paper. Absolute A+!

A definite asset

My visually-oriented kindergartener, who reads at a 3rd grade level, was having a bit of a problem following directional instructions for making cursive letters. After 10-15 minutes a day playing with the Cursive app, and then going back to his printed worksheets, he is breaking through his barriers. The animation feedback, repetition, and totally dispassionate patience of the app is just the thing he needed.

Our 2-year-old preschooler, while playing with the Writing Wizard app, is learning small motor skills and the importance of following instructions. Because of the miscellaneous animations, she is also learning physics, fluid dynamics, and so much more. We have definitely recouped our investment in the app by the end of this first week.

Thanks for your positive review !

This is perfect for teaching children cursive. I have my kids use it with the Apple Pencil so the skill will transfer over to real life writing with pen and paper, and it does. The instructions are straightforward and simple enough I didn’t have to explain to my five-year-old—she didn’t need my help at all. And the animations are dope. They remind me of those bubble things you buy for your desk for people to play with or old Windows screensavers. They are interactive and oddly satisfying.
