How it works

R is for..

Caught up in the mystery of letters and numbers? LetterSchool makes handwriting incredibly easy to unravel. Just pick a letter, kick back and enjoy the show. As a bonus, you’ll learn the letter’s name, its sound and a word to go with. How cool is that? But the fun’s just beginning! Get ready for three awesome games: taptrace and write



Find the magic dot at the beginning of the letter, tap it and watch as the first part of the letter comes to life. Then tap the other dots in the right order to complete the letter. Congratulations! You’ve earned your first star and unlocked the next game.


You’ve already learned where to start, change direction and finish. In this game, the trick is to trace the letter correctly all the way to the end. A stunning reward awaits you—and your second star to boot. Now hop on to the ultimate challenge…


Time to show off your brand-new skills! Go on and write the letter, this time without training wheels. You’re on your own! Don’t worry, though; while you’re writing we’ll make sure you don’t stray too far from the path.

Three Character Sets

LetterSchool comes with two sets of letters—uppercase and lowercase—and a set of numbers from 1 to 10.

As an advanced feature, LetterSchool lets you choose from three of the most popular typefaces used in handwriting education.

Rewards Galore

Completing the three letter games doesn’t leave you empty-handed. Your achievement is marked by a star in the menu screen and shines for all the world to see. Why not try for a few more?

Two levels: twice the fun, twice the practice

Learning handwriting takes a lot of practice, and polishing up your skills after a while reinforces what you’ve learned. So we’ve built in two levels: silver (blue menu) and gold (orange menu). Once you reach gold, you’ll get to play a whole new set of games and meet your greatest challenge: free-form writing.
