Have your children learn to write with this colorful app on the iPad! This educative app helps children recognize and learn to write both letters & numbers, stimulated with the sensation of a game-like experience. The development of this app has been done in consultation with pedagogical specialists with the objective to encourage children to learn. The app can be used inside or outside the classroom.
This educational game takes the child through a series of different exercises. Each exercise requires the child to outline the shape of a letter or number by following the arrows indicated on the touch screen. On every successfully completion the child is awarded a reward (much like a tick in the box, only here it’s a butterfly!). This is repeated 5 times and thereafter the child continues to the next exercise. To ensure that children stay engaged the exercises are grouped and offer various combinations of numbers, letters, capital letters and letter combinations. On completion of every group of exercises the child earns a fun sticker. There are a total of eight stickers to collect.
Children can use either their finger or a special (stylus) pen to do the exercises on the touch screen. The use of the pen is encouraged seen as this way the child not only learns the letters & numbers but also how to physically hold and write with a pen, which in turn develops their motor skills.

Tip: Disable "Multitasking gestures" by going to Settings > General > Multitasking gestures.
To rest your wrist on the screen make sure that the "Multitasking gestures" are disabled. This feature of the iPad makes it easy to switch quickly between applications using four fingers. Unfortunately this feature prevents the game to function properly when a child touches the screen with his or her wrist.
