Handwriting Without Tears is a digital teaching tool that teaches children good handwriting habits for capitals letters and numbers. It’s especially helpful with teaching correct formation and orientation habits and therefore children learn to write capitals and numbers with the right steps and without reversals.
The Handwriting Without Tears app makes children learn their capital letter and numbers by focusing on proper letter formation. This iPad app looks like a wood-bordered slate and comes with a piece of chalk, a sponge and a paper towel. The children are even provided with a personal instructor who coaches children through the formation steps and helps them fix mistakes. There is a “Pick and Practice” game that lets children practice capital letters and numbers in any order they chose. There are three levels of difficulty for each letter so that children build skills progressively.
The Handwriting Without Tears Wet-Dry-Try app is available for the iPad 2 and the iPad3 and it is priced at $4.99. This includes the capital letters and numbers.
Officials from the company have said that they are evaluating the incoming customer feedback on the app before they make plans to come up with lower case letters and cursive.
