A fun way to learn letters and numbers

Young children work magic as they write letters and numbers with sparkling candy, squealing tires, cuddly animals, whistling trains and humming lawn mowers.

Boreaal, a small Dutch publisher, has invested heavily into LetterSchool, the new handwriting game it released a few weeks ago. The makers used all their experience in education, publishing, software development and computer graphics to achieve a fully intuitive game. In addition to a variety of learning modalities, the app offers high-quality graphics, effects and animations at a level not easily found in educational apps for this age group. Boreaal is pleased with LetterSchool’s first place in the category Best Educational Game in the 2011 Best App Ever Awards.

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. Young children work magic as they write letters and numbers with sparkling candy, squealing tires, cuddly animals, whistling trains and humming lawn mowers. The wide variety of games captures the child’s attention and keeps young players practicing their letters and numbers, over and over again. At home, at school, in the car and everywhere else, children can learn at a comfortable level and at their own pace.

The response to LetterSchool is unanimously enthusiastic. This reception confirms what Boreaal suspected: it’s high time for a new approach to handwriting instruction. At home, parents don’t always know how they can best help their children learn to write. At school, overfull curricula leave little room for handwriting lessons. Also, studies indicate that many teachers received poor handwriting instruction themselves. The quality of LetterSchool’s instruction is constant and independent of the person, place and time. As users and experts have pointed out, LetterSchool makes learning handwriting particularly entertaining.
