It’s no surprise that kids love being on electronics but normal games aren’t the only thing they have to play. If kids are having fun they love educational games too… because they don’t know they are learning at the same time.
Last week Elately has released iTrace a new app made especially for the iPad (regular and mini) that will make learning how to write letters, numbers and word both fun and interesting for your children, while sneaking in that teaching factor. I downloaded the app and let Kendall have at it.
iTrace was created under the guidance of seasoned educational professionals to the iPad’s touch screen to teach children the basics of writing and spelling. Numbers, uppercase and lowercase letters, words, and even the child’s own name are all used in a simple, straightforward manner that draws kids in and keeps them interested time and time again.
One feature I like is that the app allows multiple kids to use the app and it will save their history and progress for each user. We only have Kendall using the app since Makenna knows how to do her letters and numbers but I do like the feature of allowing more than one child to learn and have a saved progress history.
The support kids get when drawing using their finger is great because it will tell them it was “too shaky” or “out of bounds” so you and your child know what they need to work on.
Kendall likes doing uppercase letters right now but there is also an option of lowercase letters, numbers, practice and words. After she has successfully completes her letters 3 times an award is given. Next we’ll be moving on to “My Name” where it can help Kendall how to write her name!
- 600+ different rewards
- 50 animated objects
- Supports multiple players
- Saves the entire history of each child’s progress
- Supports multiple methods of writing the same letters
- A simple switch adjusts the entire system for left-handed kids
For those of you with an iPad and a young child, this app is a must to check out, you will be happy with iTrace’s ability to simplify the learning process for your child. iTrace can be downloaded at the App Store for $3.99, check it out!
