Learning to Write With Smart Balloons App Review

Let me know if this sounds familiar…. “It’s time to put down the iPad and do your homework!” With the Learning to Write with Smart Balloons By Jan Friml you can now say, “It’s time to pick up the iPad and practice writing”. You kids will love to practice the basics and techniques of writing with the Smart Balloons app.

The app starts with basic finger strokes across the screen and increases in difficulty, direction and shape with each increasing level completed. When the stroke is not correct the app will gently prompt you and repeats the drill so you can get it right. When you successfully complete a level you get to pump and pop the balloon which my 5 year old absolutely loves!

Here is some more detail and screenshots about the app:
Writing is one of the basic activities which children learn after entering school. In their exercise books and under the teacher's supervision, they train lines, arcs, loops and many other graphomotor elements.

Although the iPad cannot teach your child the correct pencil grip or body posture, it can be a very good tool for training the shapes used in learning to write. By "finger writing", the brain activates the same centers the child uses when writing with a pencil.

You can get my favorite new child writing app here:
