School Writing

A learn to write app, containing the approved handwriting fonts that are taught in your school. School Writing includes 28 individual plain and cursive letters for use in American Schools - Zaner-Bloser and D'Nealian styles. It also contains the correct fonts for each Australian state - NSW, QLD, SA, VIC & TAS, New Zealand, South Africa and the UK. This app is certainly a must have for every parent and teacher ***** by mrsnic123 Students just love this app. They love the different color choices and the replay button. Definitely seen positive results with students with fine motor difficulties. Congratulations on a great app. Must-Have for all schools ***** by Aunty_Vegemite Brilliant App that is more than just a handwriting App. It can also be used in just about any curriculum area. Incredibly easy to create my own lists of words with pictures and sounds. Using this app, students are able to intuitively trace pre-handwriting shapes, uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, words or whiteboard images. School Writing enables hearing and seeing the letters, words and numbers along with customisable associated images and sounds. School Writing allows a student to easily and quickly respond to the lessons by means of written and/or audio recordings. School Writing as an 'open scaffold' design, can provide far beyond an early educational stage. With the option of tracing accuracy turned on, students are being rewarded with a star depending on their level of accuracy. They are given three attempts before proceeding with learning of next letter or number. The teacher tracing feature enables audio recording for the letter sounds, changing the letter images and recording tracing instructions or individual letter phonetics. The ‘Whiteboard’ section allows a teacher to draw or import images along with unique audio instructions for the purposes of tracing or interaction. Students can trace and record the audio answers. The app enables creation, saving and sharing your own word lessons, profiles and customizations to suit your curriculum, while providing complete control over the lessons' management, the app and the student profiles.

Selecting any of the choices kicks you back to the desktop. This doesn't work at all. Save your money.

Please fix your software. When you select an exercise and try 25% of the time your program/app does not take user input than I have to close the app out and try again. Also accuracy of the program is off. When you complete the letter b and I don't care how you write it 50% of the time it tells my son to keep practicing and does nor award a star. I have tried myself and get the same results so there is definitely something wrong with the calibration of your software.
