Having taught Kindergarten for a while, I can identify with the importance of having children learn to write their letters in the right format. In the classroom, guided sheets show the particular order of the letter to be drawn, rather than making the letter randomly out of lines. This is called tracing your letters. Now your child can do this on your iPhone or iPad with Alphabet Tracing. Your young one will learn to trace letters with his or her finger correctly, and additionally change colors and textures to do this, or write on a blank doodle practice page.

There are so many cute and helpful facets to Alphabet Tracing. When you are on the screen with the letter to be traced, you may choose what kind of train, truck or worm follows the directional arrows to demonstrate the writing by clicking the train icon at the bottom of the screen. Whenever you want to be reminded of the direction of tracing, simply tap that same icon, and the chosen vehicle will proceed down the lines of the letter again. When you are ready to trace your finger yourself, tap on the paintbrush. Select whether or not you want to trace letters or numbers by tapping the appropriate icon on the top of the screen. If you want to change the color with which you are tracing, go back to the menu by clicking the raccoon which is the top left icon. On this screen you may choose color from a lovely color wheel, texture from among many beautiful selections, toggle Sound, or even open a Blank Page upon which to doodle. Alphabet Tracing is really a perfect handwriting app with which to improve your child's understanding of handwriting techniques.
