Teacher Review

Writing Wizard is designed to help children learn how to trace letters, numbers and words. The app also includes some letter naming and phonetic sounds. The app allows the children to learn how to write in smaller and longer forms. 

Writing Wizard is a great app for teaching children correct letter formation and allowing them to practice in a fun and engaging way. We were particularly delighted to see how much children enjoyed playing this app. We’ve tested many letter/writing apps and this stands out for us – several of our little testers were keen to play over and over again because they enjoyed the animations and interactivity so much.

We really liked the way in which children could start with patterns, developing their fine motor skills, and then move on to letters (lower and upper case), numbers and finally words.

The parent area was brilliant and gave detailed reports as to exactly what children had been doing – we really liked the way you could replay how they formed the letter. This is a powerful tool as it will enable parents to correct any wrong formations early on.

Typically developing learners and those who struggle with fine motor, handwriting and dysgraphia will benefit greatly from this app.To keep the kids engaging, Writing Wizard app includes amazing interactive graphics like stars, tiger faces, fun stickers and along with sound effects. The app also ses some clearly identifiable letters to communicate meaning, representing some sounds clearly and in sequence.

For Parents

Tracing History will provide detailed reports to parents on how kids are progressing and where their kids are struggling and whether the current difficulty level suits them or not. These reports can be exported and sent in an email. Parents can print worksheets for kids to practice with a pencil and paper out of the app.
