Handwriting with Ipads

So we used the Ipads today for handwriting. We are using a free app called Writing Wizard which enables the children to hear the sounds of the letters and also know the starting point when forming letters correctly.
The children always enjoy this and hopefully some of them will get the app on their own ipads at home to reinforce learning.

The children were blind folded and had to guess which flavours were which....
