Great App!

Perfect practice makes perfect! This app allows some "wiggle room" while forming letters however if you go too much off course it will make you start that particular line or curve over again. After 3 consecutive mistakes, the app will show you how to perform the task again. Having taught k-5 ( gen. ed. and sp. ed.) I can confidently say many children rush through tasks without truly THINKING about what they are doing. This app won't let you do that. I highly suggest sitting down with the child and assisting as needed (hand over hand, etc) until they are comfortable with the methods. I also don't feel this should be used for long periods of time if a child is struggling. A few assisted minutes here and there will suffice and progress will be seen.

A great app, but issues

This app is good for a child practicing the form of the letters when the chalk board is not handy. We own the handwriting without tears books and they work very well. The only issue I have with this app is that it is very sensitive. Your child has to make the line near perfect to keep it from starting over again. I as an adult had a hard time keeping it with in the given space. If you have a child with motor control problems, this app will more than likely frustrate them. I gave the app 3 stars because it has been helpful to my child who is 5 slow down when writing and carful let do her letters well. It did however take a while getting there.


The name is not true to itself. We had lots of tears. The program is so precise that if the child lifts his finger even a quarter inch short of making the complete line, he his told to do it over and after two tries, the program starts over making the child feel like a failure. I watched to see what the problem was and the child’s hand can block the view of the letter completion. The child can go outside the curved line when making a “C” but can’t stop short when making an “R”.
