Writing Apps for iPad for Kids That Make Writing Fun? I’m In!
I love it when I find a freebie that makes our learning more enjoyable and, better yet, that succeeds in keeping Super Hero enthusiastic about writing. This little writing iPad app for kids packed a punch doing just that. He –and I– can’t get enough of writing words or short sentences on this chalkboard. Aside for writing our All About Spelling and Handwriting Without Tears sentences, it’s just plain fun for scribbling and doodling too. The sounds that it makes as you write, erase, or change the color of the board are so cool. And, the chalk wearing off while the dust collects on the board’s bottom bar effect make this app so realistic and irresistible. It also lets you take screenshots of your master works right on the spot by clicking on a little camera icon. What’s not to love? (Oh yes, we’re skillful at ignoring the ads … and if we decide to upgrade to the full version, it’s only $1.99. That’d give us more colored chalks to play with 😉 )
Super Hero and I give Real ChalkBoard HD two thumbs up.
How about you? Do you have any experiences with iPad apps that are fun, or that you can recommend?
