It is based on a method of teaching cursive handwriting developed by a UK Literacy teacher with over 20 years teaching experience. Since its introduction in 2005 this method has helped thousands of children master cursive handwriting.
The app has three levels: Beginner, Intermediate and Expert.
Beginner Level teaches children to recognise letters by their sounds and to write individual cursive letters correctly on the screen with their fingers.
Intermediate Level shows children how to recognise letters and blends by their sounds and to join letters together correctly on the screen with their fingers.
Expert Level teaches children to sequence the sounds they can hear in a word and then join the letter together and write the word correctly on the screen using a finger or a stylus.
