Yum-Yum Letters: Learn & Trace

Kindermatica Ltd.
Worried how your wiggleworm will learn to write his letters? Let a fat juicy caterpillar, smiling snowflake and a fluffy spider teach him. Yum Yum Letters gives kids a gentle introduction to handwriting.

FEATURES:
• Learning letters: letter names + sounds + demonstration of letter formation
• Uppercase and lowercase letters, lined paper, white or animated background
• Popular school fonts (ZB, HWT, D'Nealian)
• Motivation system with mini-games rewards
• Customizable settings for up to 30 students
• Detailed progress reports (mistakes marked, video of tracing, reports to email)
• 14 awards to earn for efforts and diligence!

This “smart” app is so cheery and full of positive reinforcement and encouragement, kids will view tracing as a game. They have a choice of scratching out letters on a frosty window or munching through alphabet imprinted leaves to get to a shiny red apple. Parents also get choices as they can set the app to follow ABC order or present letters developmentally based on starting point and/or type and difficulty of strokes.

After completing a series of letters kids earn a reward which may be helping the caterpillar turn into beautifully decorated butterfly or making a snowflake from jewel-like ice crystals. What little ones won't realize is even these mini-games are building their motor skills and helping develop the control they will need to write.
