Right now, many parents are working hard to prepare their children for kindergarten. One crucial skill children need to master is writing letters and numbers, but for many, the process is far from easy. During the summer holiday, many children become frustrated, and parents wonder how they can help their children make progress. The new app LetterSchool provides an effective and easy solution: it lets kids have fun while they practice the complex skills of handwriting. The method’s educational value is strongly appreciated not just by parents; teachers also respond enthusiastically to LetterSchool. Just a few months after its release, the handwriting app has already been introduced into many schools all over the world.

Learning to write letters and numerals will never be the same after a child tries LetterSchool. - Children’s Technology Review

LetterSchool competes with advanced mobile games, boasting high-quality graphics, effects and animations at a level rarely seen in apps for young children. This simple, consistent, clue-based method is designed to work for all children. LetterSchool ensures that kids absorb all the basic knowledge of handwriting as they develop the fine motor skills they need. This optimal preparation gives them a head start upon entering school.

LetterSchool’s wide variety of games captures the attention and keeps players practicing their letters and numbers, over and over again. That probably explains the app’s success, despite the fact that handwriting isn’t exactly a trendy subject. The continuous highly positive response from parents and teachers underscores LetterSchool’s important role as an innovator in handwriting instruction. By spending $2.99 on LetterSchool, schools not only save money on expensive handwriting methods and software, but also on precious teaching time.

In the app, young children practice each letter or number in four steps combining different learning approaches. They first play every letter and number in the silver level, then play them again in the gold level with greater challenge. To put their acquired skills to the test, players write their very own letters in the final free-form writing game. This extensive practice in two distinct levels ensures children’s letter knowledge takes permanent root. LetterSchool guides kids by providing subtle yet highly effective visual and auditory feedback when it intelligently detects that they need a hand. This way, young players are completely free to explore the mysterious world of letters, acquiring letter and number fluency in their own, intuitive way.

In order to make LetterSchool a rock-solid piece of software, the makers didn’t just rely on their own experience in education, software development and computer graphics—little experts tested the app thoroughly. LetterSchool is a universal application for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.

—Install the free lite version of LetterSchool which will allow you to reach the gold level and test-drive the free-form writing game more quickly.
