Little Writer is a well-crafted app for writing practice. This app adds shapes and numbers to the usual letter and word practice. Tracing is supported in the app with enough leeway to not frustrate young children. Shapes include stars, diamonds (remind your child that a diamond is also called a rhombus), half circles and smiley faces. Words are built a letter at a time, but when finished your child's own writing labels the picture. One nice feature is that if your child is more advanced the app does not make them wait to follow the dots, but allows them to move along quickly.
