When the world literally writes off cursive, we build an app dedicated solely to the art of handwriting. We're very pleased to introduce to you, Intro to Cursive.
We've built Intro to Cursive from the ground-up, implementing a number of dynamic features. Wait until you play with the robust functionality, designed specifically with the new iOS 7 in mind. We're hoping it'll set your fingers ablaze...
Here's what's in the app:
✔ LETTER SOUNDS (Lowercase Letters)
Learn the sounds of the letters, in a series of guided, interactive exercises. With an emphasis on phonetics, instead of letter names, your child will trace and select the letters.
✔ LETTER NAMES (Capital Letters)
The objective of this activity is to acquire a knowledge of the names and symbols of the capital letters.
A special section designed specifically to help your child practice both their lowercase and uppercase letters - one letter at a time.
As an additional feature in the practice mode, we've included phonograms. Practice, practice, practice.
After working through tracing the letters through guided instruction, take your turn at free form writing.
Use the sandbox to practice free form writing. Also, you can challenge your child's recall by having them trace letters that appear briefly then dissolve in the sand.
COMING SOON: English (UK), French, German and Spanish.
