Teacher Says Handwriting helps improve your child's handwriting and writing skills. Children can watch an animation on how each letter is formed, trace the letter themselves, and practice their writing on blank lined paper complete with visual symbols.

It is an interactive app that provides children with the opportunity to write letters, words and sentences. Letter formation arrows are provided to assist children with proper letter formation. The animated tracing screen makes it simple to see how letters are formed. Children can also trace each upper and lowercase letter.

FOR PARENTS: A perfect app to help guide your child through the writing process to promote learning success. Practice writing your name, words and much more!

Step 1: Practice forming and writing letters
Step 2: Join letters together to make words
Step 3: Join words together to build sentences

FOR TEACHERS: This app is an excellent tool to use for whole group, small group, or individual handwriting/writing instruction. Helps to teach and reinforce letter formation, CVC words, sight words, spelling words, phonics and grammar skills, sentence structure, shared reading and writing experiences and reading response activities.

• A fun and colorful, child friendly interface
• Blank primary ruled lines to practice letter, word and sentence building and writing creativity
• Children can choose the color of their pencil, use an eraser, or touch the trash can to erase the entire page
• Letter formation: Just choose the upper or lowercase letter that you want to learn. Every letter is animated so you will be able to see it’s proper formation, and trace it with the guidance of arrow prompts.
• Allows for the developmental growth of emergent writers with the ability to choose one, two, or three primary ruled lines per page
• Visual symbols to assist with top, middle and bottom line starting and ending points
• While a stylus is not required to use this app, using one will allow a child to practice using a pen/pencil to write while reinforcing grip/fine motor skills
• Connects writing to reading as children read what they are writing

Love the lined "paper"!

Sahm 94518

This app is affordable and useful for my son to practice letter formation with my guidance. I like the option to trace letters, and you did a good job instructing the tracing order with numbered arrows. I have only tried letter Q, but I expect this will meet our needs. One additional "quiz" function would be nice, to allow children, or any user, to test if they have memorized the proper sequence of letter formation for every letter. If there was a correction aspect when a letter stroke is incorrect that would be a useful setting. Also, another useful setting is just to allow user to draw letters from a to z, test lower case and upper case together, test lower case alone, test upper case alone. Report number correct, and list the letters that need more practice.

Perfect app for teaching

I am so glad that I found this app! I teach kindergarten and have been looking for an app like this for two years. All of my students have iPads and I use this app daily for whole group lessons and for my centers. It is easy to use and the kids love it. I use it to teach handwriting, writing and more. I would definitely recommend using this app. I have encouraged parents to use it, especially to reinforce name writing and to practice writing sentences!



I love this app because I’ve been looking for a handwriting app with plain blank lines as well as animations for each individual letter. My class is enjoying the app because there’s a giant area to practice letters unlike the very minimal area most apps have where the students have to crunch in their letters (defeating the purpose of practicing letters and using iPad). They can also practice sentences on the 2 and 3 lined paper. Glad I discovered this app!
