Ratings and Reviews
Excellent App. We've downloaded many educational apps for preschool and elementary. This is the best. It would be equally good for adults to learn cursive handwriting with this app. When dragging the letters onto the line in the correct order for a word, be sure to actually drag them onto the line (another important lesson when writing). I will watch for other apps from this developer.
Joined up is definitely a British program! But I love the style better than what is taught in the US. Have learned it is fabulous for teaching children with diverse learning difficulties and can be introduced as early as preschool. None of my children have any trouble reading or writing cursive anymore! Thank you!
A nice app for British style cursive
I'm an American living in the UK. Thanks so much for this app! It will help my primary school age learn the British style cursive they are learning in school. I was having trouble helping them because I only know the US style. The app covers letter formation clearly, but it would benefit from a few more words as final practice.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
