ABCBuddy is the perfect preparation for Dr. Peet’s WritingBuddy on the iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. This fun, free app is designed to help beginning writers find letters on the onscreen keyboard, at the same time giving them a laboratory for letter recognition. ABCBuddy makes it easy and fun to work on the differences between W and M, Y and T, S and X, etc. After they have reached a certain number of correct letter identifications, they will be ready to move on to the “talkwriting” tool, WritingBuddy.
Beginning writers really enjoy the fun of hearing a funny or congratulatory little soundbite as a reward for finding the target letter. We allow a total of four repetitions per letter before the beginning writer must touch the arrow to change to another target letter.
