LetterSchool is a writing app to teach proper handwriting in a fun, non-traditional way. The target age is between 4 – 6-year olds, however, it is excellent for reinforcing handwriting technique for older children and students that struggle with fine motor skills.
The settings are customizable and the app uses a multiple step learning approach. First, it introduces the letter. Then the student taps on the dots and watches how the letter is written. Lastly, the child practices tracing and writing the letter free form. The graphics are bright and colorful. And, the sounds are not annoying or distracting. The students’ settings and progress can be stored for later play.
LetterSchool is a favorite app among occupational therapists. They like that the app features the ability to choose a specific handwriting curriculum. And, student information can be saved for up to three students. We also reviewed this app one-on-one with a 4-year old student with muscular dystrophy and she loved it.
Children enjoy playing and learning with this app and it is a great supplemental handwriting resource for classrooms, homeschool families and therapists. LetterSchool is a BridgingApps favorite.
