Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that Write My Name is a content-packed app that teaches kids how to write lower- and uppercase manuscript letters and 112 preloaded sight words. It aligns with kindergarten and first-grade English Common Core State Standards. It’s especially helpful for kids with dysgraphia, who might have trouble with written language processing, fine motor growth, letter reversal errors, visual/spatial issues, and spelling. The app provides audio and visual cues to writers and teaches using the top-down method for forming letters (beginning every letter from the top and working down). Parents can customize by adding names of people or places for writers to trace. When practicing sight words, kids can capture an image of their completed word card to show their progress. Write My Name will not reinforce fluid letter writing, since you can stop mid-letter and begin again where you left off (instead of going back to the beginning of the fluid stroke).

Write My Name is a Education app that is designed for those 4.  The app has an overall rating of 3 out of 5 and a learning rating of 3 out of 5.

Write My Name is available for $3.99 On The Following Devices:



Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

Each task includes bright and charming animation to accompany each letter or word. Parents or kids also can add specific words to practice, which can include an image and/or a voice recording to make it more personal.

The Support Level for Write My Name is about a 3 out of 5.

There is a lengthy guide provided with this app (accessed through the settings gear). Each activity is self-explanatory; sound effects help guide writers to create letters correctly. Kids cannot move on with letters until they’re completed.

We’d like to thank C.S.M for providing some of the information on this page.
