I teach littles ,

Love it, but could use one fix...

I tried out several handwriting apps before settling on this one. This is really the best one out there! I really like the self-correcting feature that helps children learn to keep their lines within the space and correct stroke order. I love the ability to add words for my daughter to practice spelling and writing.

The correct stroke order is HUGE for me. I’m a teacher and I see SO many students forming their letters with the wrong stroke order and it leads to confusion with certain letters. I also see many students who have incorrect placement of letters, particularly those going below the baseline - g, j, p, q, y. To that end, one important thing I would like to see added is writing guide lines so children work on placement on the line and letter formation simultaneously. It would really help to have the letters being practiced displayed on guide lines and still keep the self-correcting feature ensuring correct stroke order.

It might also be nice to have some control over how much they have to stay within the letter tracing to make it more challenging as children advance to encourage neater, more precise letter formation.

Overall, this is a great app!

We Freaking LOVE IT!!!

Let me start by saying I am in love and thankful for your App. I swear it's the best! my name is Diana and I'm a stay at home Mom/Teacher to my son (which by the way just turned 3 in December.) and I introduced your app to him so that he can have some kind of practice tracing. I can tell you that he picked it up quick by the second day, and he loves it. I had to purchase the full app to get everything you guys provide. Thank you for making tracing that much easier to teach... To all the moms out there this is the best app there is ...

Great Learning Tool

I use this app for tutoring 4-6 year olds but it's fine for pre-readers as well as for older children to help with handwriting/vocabulary. The option to add your own words and photos really boosts the power and longevity of this app. Many apps have busy graphics and annoying rewards that can kill concentration, but this app has very clean and simple graphics, with the optional pleasant background music. The creator really strives to make this a great learning tool for children.
