Disappointed in Formation of Print Letters
I'm glad I decided to try the Lite version first. The animation seems fun and there were multiple ways to master the letter. BUT the formation of the letter is just plain wrong. As an occupational therapist I cringe when kids master poorly formed letters. The formation of letters is inconsistent with what we'd see in English writing. The letter A is shown to be formed by using /-| and that is inaccurate. Traditionally an A is formed with two diagonals and one horizontal line. There is no vertical line in the letter A (as clearly demonstrated in typing this text A). And it didn't stop there. The letters B, D, & E all teach diagonal lines which are not present in English. I hope you will correct.
I have been using the Letter School App very successfully with children with learning challenges for many years now. Children who struggle with the paper pencil aspect of writing for learning the early foundation skills are extremely motivated by this App. The grading of the skill from guided support to independence is inherent in my goal as an Occupational Therapist. I highly recommend this App to colleagues and parents.
I have three-year-old twins who are in the process of learning to write their letters. I am a huge fan of Montessori sandpaper letters, but this app is even better! As an educator, I have to say this is one of the most impressive apps I've ever seen. It's engaging and interactive and both of my twins' favorite app to date! What makes it even more awesome is how they have the option of doing print, cursive and d'nealian!
I highly recommend!!
