Today I’m writing about our favorite Handwriting Apps for iPad! We have tried MANY apps for handwriting…some great, some NOT so great! 😉 Here are our Five Most Favorite – the girls love them, and just as importantly…I love them!
Our favorite handwriting app is a fun one called Letter School. My girls love tracing the letters and watching the imaginative animations. It is our FAVORITE letter and handwriting app!
My girls chose this game as a reward because of the cute giraffe! I was so glad they did. It gives my girls lots of handwriting practice – and they hardly realize that they are practicing their handwriting because they’re having so much fun! This feels like a “game” but helps kids practice their letters over and over again. What’s not to like? It’s one of our favorites!
This is another winner in the Handwriting Apps category. It’s never a problem to get my girls to play this game – they love seeing what will happen when they trace the letters.
We are introducing Cursive into our homeschool, and this is an App that my girls LOVE to play! You can “write” using pudding, shaving cream, and all sorts of other fun things. Using this app taught my girls all their cursive letters – with almost no help from me! It’s pretty frustration-free, in that even my four year old can use it. Definite recommend!
From the makers of the popular program Handwriting Without Tears…comes Wet Dry Try! I was hestiant to buy this app because of the higher price tag (it costs over twice what any of the other apps I mentioned cost). But, because we love Handwriting Without Tears, I decided to give it a shot!
I love that my kids are learning the correct way to form letters. This app is a little light on incentives, and my kids don’t BEG to play it the way they do the other apps. For a child who is having problems with letter formation, this is a GREAT app. I like having it in the mix, and it taught my preschooler how to form all her letters correctly. We then used those skills to transfer over to writing on regular paper!
Hope this helps someone…goodness knows we went through a lot of Apps before we found some good ones that worked for us! 😉 Which Apps are you loving right now?
