Learning to form lowercase letters consistently and accurately is an important step to developing fluent cursive handwriting. This absorbing and innovative app is a fantastic way to help children develop these skills. Choose a letter, hear its sound, watch a helpful creature draw it in the sand, and hear the letter name. Now try to draw the letter in its track, watching your trail form as you do so. Choose a new letter or select the tide to come in and sweep your attempt away and try again. Teacher options provide the facility to select what the user hears and what letters they can access for more focused work.
Available for iPad, Android tablet, PC and Mac. For further details on device compatibility, please see the Apps FAQ.
For a complete tactile experience, use alongside our Feels-Write Lowercase Letter Stones.
The Apple iPad version of this app is not included in the multi-platform licence but can be purchased separately via the App Store.
Practical Pre-School Awards Tester –
Our children have really enjoyed playing with these apps and have a good sense of achievement when playing with them. They maintain attention and the older children are showing better knowledge of letter sounds and shapes. The Letter Formation and Pre-Writing apps were easy and appealing to use.

My daughter is only pre nursery age but is absolutely loving your app for drawing shapes and recognising letters. More expensive than I would normally pay but her development is fantastic and worth every penny!
