Great For

Allows the user to easily select lower or upper case letters or numbers.
There is a choice of 3 different fonts for the letters.
Each letter is labelled, sounded out and used in a word example with a picture cue.
Each letter has a series of 3 models starting with a demonstration of how the letter is formed, a click and drag formation with a template, and formation without a template cue. The tasks are interesting and interactive.
Errors are supported by providing additional visual cues.

Please Consider

Verbal examples are provided in an American accent.
The letter fonts may not match those used in some Australian states.
Some students may find the auditory feedback on error motivating.
The game continues to make noises and demonstrate animations if left on but not used. This may be distracting for some students in the classroom.
Does not support the progression to combining letters into words.
Only supports the formation of numbers up to 10.

Generalise Skills and Knowledge

As with any letter formation app, Letter School can be used as one modality to support the learning of letter formation. Consider using other modalities including interesting textures as well as pencil and paper.
