View on the App Store: School Writing – Learn to write and more. (Australia/New Zealand) - demografix pty ltd

Features of School Writing – Learn to write and more:

  • A full course taking your child through pre-school shape formations to writing sentences.
  • Learn how to write numbers, shapes, upper and lower case letters and words with maths puzzles and other activities too!
  • Individual account setup with progress recorded for easy tracking.

  • Show guidelines to aid learning and fully customise font choice, type of tracing guide, encouragements plus more.
This is a very effective, well designed, fully comprehensive writing course for children and adults too, perfect for the special needs environment. Designed for students and teachers this content can be exported and emailed to track learning. 

Audio recording is possible for phonetic accuracy or instructions that can be played while your child traces.  You can remove all sounds or add delightful harp or chimes in the background to enhance your child's learning environment if that suits their style. 

Begin the course at any point depending on the skill level of yours child.  Set the  difficulty level to easy, medium or hard for measuring accuracy.  Using a stylus emulates pen and paper style learning. 

The levels where your child is learning their numbers and letters has a LEARN button.  When pressed this shows your child the CORRECT way to form the letter or number.  If you click on the camera icon during the exercise you will see the appropriate picture. 

When your child practises, if they get it right they earn a star, or a half star for nearly right, or they need to redo it.  It is possible to RESET, the number of times it has been reset is recorded. 

Start the course at shapes and pre- letter formations for toddlers and young children.  This course includes tracing shapes, simple maths, dot to dots, letter order and has 14 lessons.

Letters are learned in Upper and Lower Case with every different Australian and New Zealand state variation of style and font. Hints and grids are available.

There are 4 pen colours to suit your child' preferences with the blue pencil perfect for the more detailed lessons.  

Within the WORDS section there are 35 excellent lessons including Words Starting With, Family Names, Fill in the Missing Letters,  Write the Words in the Pictures, Unscramble Words, Using Words in Sentences, Opposites, Incorrect Spelling and Missing Vowels.
