teaching kids handwriting is not as easy as it sounds. because most of the parents and teachers try to teach children while having the worst writing skills of their own. Boreaal Publishers thinks it’s high time for a new approach to handwriting instruction. The need for one is high; in the United States and other Western countries, handwriting quality is deteriorating. Boreaal says that LetterSchool, the educational game it just released, can provide better instruction than parents or teachers.
In LetterSchool children between 4 and 6 learn all about letters and numbers: writing, counting, phonics and more. It is a universal application for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. The makers have invested heavily into high-quality graphics, effects and animations to make it much more attractive and fun for the children.
In the app, young children practice each letter or number in four steps combining different learning approaches. this might become more useful to improve the children’s handwriting in a fun way rather than boring them with normal old school writing techniques.
