Teacher Review

iTrace is ideal for homeschooling as well as classroom setting at Preschool, Pre-K, Kindergarten, and K1-K2 levels. Take a look at the selection of apps to help your child with handwriting

iTrace - handwriting for kids is an early handwriting skills app that provides kids lots of tracing practice with letters, numbers, and words, plus a special mode that focuses on tracing a kid's own name. A realistic hand holding a pencil shows kids where to trace on the model letter or number, and it erases incorrect tracing back to the previous step. Detailed progress reports include images of each tracing and assessments, such as "too shaky," "out of bounds," and "overextended." Each letter includes a default version and alternate version (including left hand) for different handwriting style preferences. Fun rewards include seek-and-finds and cute animated scenes. 

This app would be great for those children who do not typically enjoy writing, as it seems more like a game and they are using their finger (or try a fun stylus!) rather than using a traditional writing utensil.
