UptoSix Letter Formation!

A writing app to teach kids to write letters and numbers with proper formation.

This app includes

  • Uppercase and lowercase letters

  • Numbers

  • Chicken, giraffe and monkey letters

  • Writing on four lines

Pre-writing exercises for those who require a little extra assistance in developing finger control

Letters and Numbers

On each page, an animation repeatedly plays to show demonstrate how to write with proper formation. Children see the animation and try writing/ tracing independently on the red letter given. A stylus or a finger can be used to write. The thickness of the lines can be changed by selecting the pencil or the crayon icon. 

Tracing with a finger is similar to the activities done in preschools and kindergartens. It is like writing on a sand tray with a finger or on a slate with water. Writing with a stylus is similar to writing with a pencil on paper. So children start with finger tracing and gradually progress to paper-pencil writing. 

Pre-writing skills 

For children who need help with more finger control exercises, the Pre-writing skill pages are for them. By tracing different types of lines, various finger movements can be practised. 

Before preschoolers begin writing, they must first learn to hold a pencil correctly. Cutting, sticking, colouring, and picking up small objects with their fingers helps children develop fine motor skills.

Four Lines Writing  

Children need a larger space to move their hands when they start writing. That is why capital and small letters and numbers are big in size where children practice writing. Once children have perfected letter formation and construction, they must learn about letter sizing and spacing and keep their writing within the designated space of the page.

Kindergarten children learn to use the four lines on the page to guide the sizing of the letters.

Chicken, Giraffe and Monkey Letters

Chicken, giraffe, and monkey letters are useful for remembering which lines to put the letters on.

Chicken letter

Chicken letters are small. They sit between the two middle blue lines.

Giraffe letter

Giraffe letters are tall. They have a long neck,  they touch the top red line. 

Monkey letter

Monkey letters have a tail that falls and touches the bottom blue line.

Capital letters and numbers are all giraffe letters. 

We hope this app will help Kindergarteners and preschoolers to learn to write correctly in a fun and engaging way.

Happy Writing!
