Brilliant. I work in a school, at the moment 1:1 with a 4 year old. I bit the bullet and decided to buy this app to help them with their phonics. One gripe - in the UK we say 'zed- not blooming 'zee'!!! I love the reward of playing with the finished letter. The tracking of the letter formation, have several user profiles and the option to email the results so progress can be monitored is great. The ability to edit and add words is good as this means I can alter them to follow the same scheme we use at school. If I could change this I would ask if the word could be sounded out. Sometimes little people don't want the adult to talk! I am having trouble with the voice that says the phoneme, it is very slow, like a 45 being played as a 33!! This could be because my tablet is old - over 2 years old
I finally got refunded from the Handwriting Without Tears app, which never worked, and used that to buy the full version of this app! I am not a huge fan of using apps for my kids, but with handwriting being such a struggle, this is a fun, low-pressure way for my oldest to practice the letters without me constantly correcting him. I tweaked the settings to make it as low-key as possible. It doesn't have to show crazy pictures, it can just look like a pen. The 5-star practice mode is great for reinforcing the mechanics of each letter and number, and it can be customized by letter size, difficulty, etc. It is well worth the few dollars it costs to unlock the whole game, but you get a decent amount of letters to preview, so try it first!! My only suggestion would be to disable all the "play" after a letter or number is drawn. I thought there was a way to do that but can't seem to find it. Also, a way to disable the crazy animation and games globally rather than for each of the five star levels would be wonderful too!
Very nice. I give it a 4.5. The play time in ingaging but a little long. Would like the letter size to be more consistent. Other than my pet issues, it's an excellent app for handwriting training.
I love this app, as a tutor I have set a few profiles so that I can help each child I tutor. I really like that you can customise each profile to the level of the child, so ,y youngest child can have easier settings than my older children. The fact that you can play with the finished letter is great. The kids love it! I've just downloaded the cursive one as well. Keep it up!!
The app itself is great it is just the adult movie pop ups that came up. We are waiting for the company to respond to our complaint before attempting to use it again.
I thank my clss in kindergarten love this app also keeps good work going they are learning more every day also grate for teachers.
