If you suddenly find yourself homeschooling because of corona virus or you just want to help your child boost their handwriting skills, these handwriting apps will do the job!
First grade was a huge eye opener for me! We started noticing that Ethan was a little bit behind in his reading and that his handwriting was atrocious. I mean, I don’t know how his teacher understands what he is writing. I know this is a combination of him rushing through his work and not enough practice. Handwriting isn’t something stressed like it was when I was in grade school. We even had a Penmanship Award every month. Try to find that now in an elementary school.
Since we spend a lot of time on the iPad or other tablet devices, I thought it would be really easy to get in some extra handwriting practice through apps. Most apps encourage kids to trace with their fingers. When you are using these apps to help a child with their handwriting, it’s beneficial to give them a stylus to use. Not only will they be practicing their letter formations but also help them with their grip and posture that is important for handwriting.
