Make handwriting practice fun! With Wet-Dry-Try, children learn and practice correct formation habits for writing capitals, numbers, and lowercase letters. The app simulates our Slate Chalkboard and Blackboard with Double Lines and helps children learn handwriting skills in the easiest, most efficient way. The result truly is handwriting without tears!


- A proven multisensory approach teaches children to write letters and numbers with correct habits and without reversals.

- Children can practice letters in any order they choose, or follow the HWT Order, which presents the letters in the proven Handwriting Without Tears® developmental teaching order.

- A personal coach helps children with friendly audio cues to learn formation steps and fix mistakes.

- Student-created avatars let children personalize their learning, and help them easily identify their accounts.

- Each letter has three levels of difficulty that build skills progressively. Master a level and win a star. Earn three stars and win a letter card. Collect them all to win the grand prize!

- The two options for sensitivity allow parents and educators to adjust the writing tolerance depending on each student’s needs.

- The smiley face and Slate Chalkboard frame promotes good handwriting and reading habits for capitals and numbers.

- Lefty-friendly setting lets you adapt horizontal cross-strokes to make their handwriting easier.

- The double lines, modeled after our Blackboard with Double Lines, make it easy to understand where lowercase letters start and end.

Customer Reviews

If it worked...

It would be a great app that really focuses on correct formation of letters if it worked. It locks up after each letter and loses all record of which letters have been practiced. I would just chalk it up to free app bugs and uninstall it, but it wasn't free. If HWT doesn't fix it fast, I'll be demanding a refund. My only other gripe is there is only support for one student. The description says "one or two students" but if you want two students, they want more money.

Not Working Lately

As a former teacher and current homeschool mom, I'm a big fan of HWT. This app has really helped my daughter improve her handwriting. It's been a great asset to have the app "correct" her, rather than just hearing mom nap. I would give it five stars, but it hasn't been working well lately and lost our record of which letters we have reviewed.

Wet Dry's the BEST!!!

Great educational app for parents, teachers and specialists. Love that I can see the students progress and errors so I modify instruction and remediation activities.
