Handwriting Practice with Apps | My Hullabaloo

Handwriting Practice with Apps | My Hullabaloo | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"The iPad has many uses in my class but the area I feel it helps the most is with kids that are struggling. Typically when kids struggle in an area it is also something they do not like to do.

So we all try to find creative and fun ways to get hose kids to practice their skills… enter the iPad. "
