LetterSchool is a “best of the bunch” letter learning and handwriting app that will keep kids coming back for more. Which is, after all, the whole point.
This is educational technology as it should be!
Subtle audio clues help kids learn the correct way to form letters (paying attention both to order and direction of lines). Got more than one letter learner in your house? No problem. This app can store scores for up to three.
Why we like it:
The app presents kids with a giggling, dancing alphabet. They choose a letter, say Z. “This is the letter Z!” enthuses the app, “for z, z, zebra!” Then, kids have to trace the letter three times. But it’s not just boring chalk, oh no! They trace with lights, rockets, gardens, train tracks, chains, and candy necklaces. Simple animations boost the replay value.
Teachers and occupational therapists will love the fact that they can designate lower or upper case letters (or numbers) as well as choose from three handwriting learning programs.
Once they conquer the blue background level, they’ll unlock the orange background level with many more games.
Watch out for:
It would be nice if we could input kids’ names instead of choosing from the three characters in the settings (which isn’t really very clear). Maybe for future updates?
