Below are some excellent iPad apps that you can use with your kids to teach them handwriting. The apps simulate the paper and pen writing in that they provide a large white paper where kids can trace, draw and write letters and numbers.Check them out below and share with us if you have other suggestions to add to this list.
As a kindergarten teacher, and parent of a kindergarten and preschool child, I love this app! It teaches D’Nealian, which is an introduction to learning cursive. I love that there are thoroughly thought through lessons to break writing into chunks for students. Leaves that student in the exact place they left off, awards the student stars for job well done on each part of the lesson, and gives immediate feedback if a student needs improvement. Brought this to my Assistant Principal to use school wide.
