5 Apps to Help Your Child Write in Cursive

Cursive writing is starting to lose its art. I, for one, have had my cursive writing take a slow, downward decline towards the bad and ugly. Are you in the same boat? I sometimes sit with my kids and practice writing my name. I’ve tried working and showing my kids how to write in cursive, but since they don’t do it that often, they tend to forget what I taught them and then, well, I’m sure you know the rest.

Apps are a part of our lives inside the classroom and out. Teachers are using tablets in the classroom more than ever, so why not teach the kids how to utilize technology and old school practice all in one place? Here are 5 cheap or free apps for your kids to practice cursive writing.
