What's New in Version 1.1
This app is amazing! I love how you can do cursive in letters and numbers. The only thing I don't like is that if you mess up it dosen't repeat the letter or number when you have gotten it wrong. This app has helped me a lot with my cursive issues and I definitely recommend it to anybody even if they don't need help on it. In conclusion this app is great!
Still better than nothing
Schools are lowering their proficiency standards in everything from handwriting to mathematics to reading. This app teaches the new, supposedly "improved," method of cursive, which is basically a dumbed-down version of the traditional method that used to be taught in schools. The careful crafting of curves and slant is part of the artistry of cursive that helps develop a child's intellect, discipline, and creativity. At least this app will cater to parents and instructors with lower academic expectations.
Does not explicitly instruct
Children need explicit instruction. This app needs to model, instruct verbally, and show children when errors are made. example app - Handwriting Without Tears.
In cursive, strokes should be made without picking up the writing tool & children need to know that; because, yes, it's not being taught in schools per the new Common Core national standards. You can thank the dept of education, NOT public schools. Their intention, or opinion, is....people are moving toward technology & I guess they believe handwriting is becoming obsolete.
