Handwriting Heroes teaches lower case letter formation through animation, music and stories that explain WHY the letters are formed the way they are. The playful characters and their humorous antics help children recall the steps for forming letters. The app is part of a highly effective, multisensory program that helps children develop a strong foundation for writing legibly and fluently. Featuring three levels of difficulty, Handwriting Heroes educates and entertains pre-school, kindergarten and elementary-aged school children of all abilities.
- Integrated visual, kinesthetic, auditory and tactile learning strategies
- Letters are sorted into five groups based on their first stroke
- Letters can be practiced individually or in their group
- Specialized Handwriting Heroes font encourages use of continuous strokes and decreases reversals
- Multiple review and practice opportunities
- Unlimited user accounts to personalize learning to each child’s needs
- Additional program materials available at https://appytherapy.com/shop/
Neutralized a few bugs (a.k.a. villains)!
Ratings and Reviews
We love it
This app is truly a hero! It helped my son quickly correct the letters he was regularly struggling with. He had this to say "This is the best app ever!" He asks to use it regularly. He is age 8. It not only teaches letter formation but the order of the strokes is important and it has helped him sort that out. It has also made a great deal of improvement on him consistently getting the letter sizing correct using the clever grass, clouds and sky lines. Thank you!
The must-have handwriting APP
Love, Love, Love this APP. It is such a clever, creative and motivating app to help kids learn how to form letters. The way the letters are grouped is incredibly helpful, and the animation is fantastic. I have recommended it to families with young kids who are struggling to figure out how to form letters, or who are learning letters for the first time. They have made incredible progress, and the program is amazing. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for new learners or kids with handwriting needs. It is my go-to APP.
Not suitable for teachers
I love the app I just wish it would quit restarting halfway through each group and starting back at beginning. It needs to have access to all the letters and not just in the group and for quick access to use in small groups for each student to practice multiple times. A back button or forward button would be helpful as well.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
