LetterSchool - learn to write letters and numbers

ABC & handwriting app for kids

Android - Free iPhone/iPad - Free

Teacher Overview

LetterSchool is a beautifully designed handwriting app that will teach your children how to write letters (both upper and lower case) and numbers (from 1 to 10) in an animated and fun way. Using a set of four activities, LetterSchool can really enchant your children  to play with the app for a long time.

This is a literacy based app that is aimed at helping young children who are taking their first steps in learning how to read and write. Based on a large amount of research the app has been developed to provide children with the best approach in learning how to first formulate letters and shapes and then how to create letters as part of words. The research behind the app has also created the best approach for children as they learn how to create letters. This app could be used as both a school and home learning app as the learning that is undertaking through it could be applied to either usage.

Teacher Review

The developers of this app have clearly done a lot of research into working out how best they can create an app for young children on their journeys to becoming proficient with letters, numbers and the skill of writing. From just looking at the developer’s website there is a trove of information that anyone interested in learning could learn a lot from. They highlight in an easy to understand way how and why the app has been developed in the way that it has. It is very refreshing to see a developer who takes so much care and dedication to creating an app with their sole purpose being to create a product that maximises the learning of the individual as much as possible.

The app itself is broken down into a number of different sections; however they do not necessarily need to be followed in a certain way they could be ‘dipped in and out of’ by the user quite easily. Once the app is first opened the user is given a number of options to choose from. These range from learning to write activities via shapes then letter formations, number formations and learning to write and spell certain words such as CVC or CVCC words. As mentioned a user could simply work their way from the beginning section of the app, the learning to write via shapes and progress through in a linear fashion, progressing through harder activities as they learn to become more accomplished. However, an older child who can already create letters would still benefit greatly from this app as they could begin, not at the start, but with one of the harder activities such as creating CVC words.

One of the biggest attributes of this app is the design and gameplay. As already mentioned a lot of work has gone into researching how best to create this type of app so it is no surprise that the app works in such a smooth way. The graphics are truly sensational as are the animations within the activities of the app and this would certainly keep any user engaged in the app and wanting to come back for more. Another important feature though is the way the learning takes place within the app. At the beginning of the activity the user is guided through how to access the activity by watching the app complete it first. After this they are then given the opportunity to start interacting themselves with the app by tapping the areas highlighted on the letter, shape or number they are to be recreating. Then, they are asked to trace the letter, following the movements already shown and finally they are able test their knowledge from memory by recreating the letter shape themselves. These are clearly tried and tested ways of helping children to not only learn to the best of their ability within the app but to keep them engaged by feeling they are continually succeeding when using the app.

Overall LetterSchool is a fantastic app that could easily be used at home or in a school setting for children of different ages and abilities in terms of learning how to write and spell.
