Learning how to write words, numbers, sentences, math

Learning how to write words, numbers, sentences, math by Kiddyapps is a wonderful workbook style app. This app teaches children how to write in regular handwriting and also in cursive. Children can use their finger or a stylus to trace the lettering in the app. Dot and arrows show them how to trace the letters so they can begin to write on their own. There is over 80 scenes and includes many different types of writing paper. The app includes both lowercase and capital letters along with number 0-9, words, and phrases. This app can be used over and over again unlike paper versions that have to be thrown out and re bought over time. The little monkey in the corner of the page guides your child from page to page as they practice writing. When you first turn on the app and and hit start you will be giving 8 choices. The choices are: Line practice, lowercase and capital, numbers, words, sentences, blank sheet, math, and what looks like a blot of ink is really for practicing your name! :). When you go into a section such as line practice you will be given lines on two of the practice lines and the remaining will be for you to try by yourself. The monkey in the corner is where you can clear your page by touching his nose, go onto the next set by touching his green ear, or go back by touching his red ear. I think by having the monkey and not just arrows it helps so your child doesn't enter and exit all the time. I would highly highly highly recommend this app :)

Pro's: wonderful workbook style, tracing lines, extra lines to do by your child's self, easy but yet hard for child to navigate, no distracting animations
