Dave Sharp, creator of Startwrite, produced this helpful program after trying to help his four-year-old daughter with her handwriting lesson. As soon as he saw how difficult and time consuming it was to replicate his daughter's worksheet from school by hand, he knew that Startwrite would be a program that parents could really use to make a difference in their children's education.
Give your child a head start in writing with Startwrite. This time saving, effortless program makes learning to write fun and meaningful and allows parents to be directly involved in what their children are learning.
"Cursive writing requires a very different skill set from print writing. It involves using the hand muscles in a different way. Additionally, it activates a different part of the brain than regular writing does. At the age cursive is taught, around 7 or 8 years old, these skills can be very beneficial in furthering motor skill development."
"I can't tell you how happy we are and how excited the children were to use it. Unlike our old handwriting books that had no meaning to them, the children are able to trace and then write things that are meaningful to them! My daughter even wrote a thank-you note to her grandparents. We're very, very pleased."
