"The world may have written off cursive, but Montessorium has built an app dedicated to the art of teaching handwriting." - Apple
YOUR CHILD WILL LEARN:
- Basic foundations of language, with an emphasis on cursive
- To read, write and understand letters from a-z
- Lowercase letter symbols and their sounds (phonics)
- Phonograms - writing and pronunciation
- Uppercase letters - letter names, writing and pronunciation
- Consonants and vowels
- Fine motor skills
Intro to Cursive includes the following activities in a Universal app that will work on iPad and iPhone:
- LETTER SOUNDS (Lowercase Letters)
Learn the sounds of the letters, in a series of guided, interactive exercises. With an emphasis on phonetics, instead of letter names, your child will trace and select the letters.
- LETTER NAMES (Uppercase Letters)
The objective of this activity is to acquire a knowledge of the names and symbols of the capital letters.
- PRACTICE (Lowercase, Uppercase, and Phonograms)
A special section designed specifically to help your child practice both their lowercase and uppercase letters one letter at a time.
After tracing the letters through guided instruction, take your turn at free form writing.
Use the sandbox to practice free form writing. Challenge your child's recall by having them draw letters that appear briefly, then dissolve in the sand.

Would be 5 stars, except...
The narrator adds an “uh” sound after some of the consonants, saying “buh,” “duh,” and “guh,” among others. The correct method is to give the pure phonics only (“b,” “d,” “g”), as adding “uh” confuses children later as they try to build words by sound.
Additionally, I wish it didn’t say “you did it” after each three part lesson. It gives no time for the child to realize “*I* did it.” The goal of a Montessori education is for the child to develop intrinsic motivation, not hear constant praise from the instructor.
They stop at letters and a few pairs. And even then it works poorly. You can’t move the pen at a natural speed because the app will stop drawing and you have to start over. You have to go very slowly.
Don’t bother buying
The sound is very bad it does not give any extraction to kids
