How I Use It
I use it during centers in my classroom. The students work on improving their handwriting. It keeps their attention through out their time at the center. I have never had any problems with the app closing unexpectedly. I have also used it as an intervention for my students who have occupational therapy deficits to help them improve their fine motor skills.
My Take
This is a great handwriting app. I love that is forces the student to form the letters and numbers the correct way. The app would also be great to work on recognizing letters numbers and sight words. The other great aspect of this app is that the students never get tired of using this app. I think the graphics and the cute little crab creature they lead around the letter helps keep them engaged.
