Learn How to Write in Cursive with Cursive Writing LetterSchool

LetterSchool is our favorite tracing app. As soon as your kids can use their index finger to trace, they can learn how to write letters and numbers. We even chose it as one of the best apps for one-year-olds.

At the start of the new year, a new edition of the app was released. Called Cursive Writing LetterSchool, it focuses on how to write letters and numbers in cursive. The new app has everything that makes LetterSchool great and then some.

What Makes LetterSchool Great

If you’re not familiar with LetterSchool, there are several things that make it such a great app. First, it lets kids learn how to write in three stages: watching, tracing, and writing. In the watching stage, all kids need to do is to tap the dots in the correct order to see how the a letter is written. Once they've known the correct sequence and strokes, they practice tracing the letter. After they can trace it correctly, they move on to the writing stage where they need to write the letter without any guidance.

Play and Learn about Shapes, Numbers, Letters, Colors, Patterns, and Time with Happy Valley Friends

Playing is not just fun, it’s also the best way for kids to learn new things. The new app Happy Valley Friends proves this concept. It has fun activities to help kids learn about shapes, numbers, letters, colors, patterns, and time.

The Mini Games

In Happy Valley Friends, there are 6 locations that kids can visit. Each location is hosted by a cute animal friend, and holds 4 activities. In the first 3 activities, kids are asked to complete 8 challenges designed to help them learn a topic. On the other hand, the fourth activity is more like a mini game where kids can unwind a bit before they move on to the next challenges.

A common thread through the activities is the goal to match specific objects. The only difference is the matching rules and the difficulty level. For example, in the shapes activity kids are tasked to drag foods of a specific shape to the animal that requests them. Whereas in the numbers activity, kids are required to match numbers against units or equations against the correct results. Another interesting activity is where kids must match the hands of the clock to the correct time.
