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!

We need an update! It really stinks to have to delete a great app because it won’t work with the updates,

Need app update from developer.

I got this app to help our children with cursive.
Being able to create weekly spelling words for them to practice was ideal.
Only, it isn't updated to work with iOS 10+.
(It'll still charge ya, however!)

Having one word, that isn't sized in a way to See the whole word, is not helpful.
(As the word is traced, it will scroll left. No way to see the entire word)
It will show the input word, however it's only useful if kids are practicing IN the app.

**If it's ever updated, I'd like to see an update that would allow any list, specifically created lists, to be shown in list form.

** I hope for a list form that will show the entire list in cursive. That would allow children to see what it's supposed to look like, and for them to complete homework.

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.
