welcome to their world apps

LetterSchool by Boreaal is an awesome app for learning how to write your letters. I absolutely love this app!!! This is defiantly the most amazing writing app of individual letters I've seen yet. This app is perfect for special needs children with all the bright colors and repetitive motions that really help to get it to stick. My four year old is just starting to trace letters and he loves this app. My six year old is still working on writing correctly and this app really helps get his letter format down. My eight year old is learning to write her letters correctly in different formats with this app. The app has four levels for each letter. Level 1 is intro- introducing the letter's shape, name, and sound, Level 2 is Tap- learn by tapping the dots to make the letter, Level 3 is trace- Tracing the letter, and Level 4 is Write- where your child writes the letter from memory. Each letter and level brings a new and exciting item such as a train track, chalk board, and more. This app not only helps with letters and letter sound recognition but sensory needs too with all the sounds and sites. This app also includes numbers and how to write them up to number 10. This app helps a lot with fine motor skills as it will not allow your child to go out of the letter lines. The app offers three letter styles: The D'Nealian Style, Handwriting without Tears, and Zaner-Bloser Style. My children learned the HWT in preschool but not that the older two are in Kindergarten and First Grade they use the D'Nealian Style and it has been a challenge with them. This app has helped with learning the little extra curve at the end and how to form the rest of the letter while adding the curve. I highly highly highly recommend this app for handwriting skills :) Please check out the free version and see if this app is for you :)

Two levels: twice the fun, twice the practice

Learning handwriting takes a lot of practice, and polishing up your skills after a while reinforces what you’ve learned. So we’ve built in two levels: silver and gold. Once you reach gold, you’ll get to play a whole new set of games and meet your greatest challenge: free-form writing.
