Parents are sometimes encouraged to teach their children to write at least their first names before they begin school. The most important first step in learning to write is for the child to learn to follow the right ‘movement pathway’ of each letter. This is because our writing system goes from left to right and correct formation follows this principle. It also ensures that the letters begin and end in the right place for moving on to the next letter and, later, for joining. If young children are allowed to form letters ‘their own way’ these habits become established and may be very difficult to correct later.
This app shows them how to follow the right ‘movement pathway’ indicated with arrows.
Colors (green= correct, red= wrong) will indicate if the letter is traced correctly.
Once the letter is traced an encouraging sound will appear.
