Kids love learning to write cursive - especially when they can use shaving cream, paint, and jello! "Cursive Touch and Write" was developed by real classroom teachers, and recreates the fun and effective teaching strategy used in classrooms every day: learning writing with shaving cream, jello, finger paint, and more! Practice single letters in "Single Letter Mode" for more support, then switch to "Whole Word Mode" to write entire words with connected letters! (Note: "Whole Word Mode" is only available for the iPad version.) "Cursive Touch and Write" allows you easily to create your own lists of children's names, spelling lists and favorite words so that you can individualize the learning experience!
‣Comes with 18 different writing textures: shaving cream, ketchup, lime gelatin, chocolate frosting, chalk, pencil, blue pen, lemon gelatin, chocolate pudding, syrup, grape jelly, whipped cream, pumpkin pie, red paint, and vanilla pudding! iPhone/iPod Touch version comes with 16 textures.
‣Comes with 35 different writing papers, including different line patterns children are most likely to find in real classrooms, food papers, animal papers, nature papers, and papers for children with visual impairments! iPhone/iPod Touch version comes with 28 papers.
‣Children can practice writing their own names and create individualized lists of spelling words or favorite words.
‣Comes with the following word lists: ABC Countries of the World (and 1 City), 50 States, The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over the Lazy Dog, ABC Words, Palindromes, Alphabet Letters, Numbers – and of course you may add as many of your own lists as you like!
‣As children write, their actual letter formation is displayed next to a standard letter, so children can compare and work to improve their cursive.
‣Brief reward at the end of each word reinforces learning and motivates children, without becoming a distraction. You may change the length of this reward or remove it altogether on the "Settings" page.
‣Created by practicing classroom teachers – based on best teaching practices!

What's New in Version 3.0
Now allows writing WHOLE words with connected, cursive letters! Still easy to add individualized lists with children's names, spellings lists, or favorite words. Write in Single Letter Mode for more support, then switch to Whole Word Mode to practice connecting letters when less support is needed. NOTE: Whole Word Mode is only available on the iPad. ALSO, in response to your input, we have now allowed you to change the length of reward time in the "Prize Room" or to eliminate this reward altogether. Thanks for your input - you can see we listen to our customers!
Great cursive writing app!
This app is fantastic for teaching cursive! Love the fact that it is customizable, engaging & multi-sensory. I do wish there were a little more visual cues like in the touch and write print app and it seems to be a little hard & frustrating for some of the kids I work with.
I think this app was once better. I think some of the updates have made it far to challenging for children "learning" to write in cursive. If I, the adult, can't successfully write the letters PERFECT enough, how exactly should a learning child be able to enjoy this app??? I think it needs to be less restrictive so kids can actually learn the movements to successfully write in cursive on paper.
Not for beginners
Doesn't really teach handwriting, ok for practice. 8 year old son says it's fun and frustrating. Too expensive. Want my money back
