StartWrite 6.0 Handwriting Worksheet Software Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
AmazingAStartwriteMy daughter loves to play “school”.  She’s been learning her ABC’s and 123’s at pre-school and loves to continue the learning at home!  I hope to keep the excitement up over the summer months. Finding worksheets online is fun, but we love to customize our own worksheets.

StartWrite 6.0 Handwriting Worksheet Software helps you to make customized Handwriting Practice sheets.  This software would be ideal for teachers and homeschoolers who want to create theme based worksheets.  I created my first worksheet, “Amazing A” in under and hour.  Now that I know what I’m doing, I am confident that I can create the next one in half that time!

The software allows you to personalize your worksheets in so many ways.  Start Dots, Letter Outlines, Decision Dots and my favorite the Numbered Arrows to show your child which line comes next.  I’m a lefty and both of my kids are right-handed so I am finding it difficult to show them how to write their letters, my hand is always covering up what I’m trying to write. These numbered arrows help immensely in showing them where to start.

It comes with a variety of clipart, borders and fonts to help you customize your worksheets.  You can also import your own graphics as well. You can turn on grids to help you layout your design, change the font density, remove the practice lines and even add boarders.

Some of the features aren’t as intuitive as I would have liked.  It took me a while to figure out how to remove the practice lines so that I could write the instructions for each section.  You can adjust the font density, but it seems that you can only adjust it for a single row.  I wanted to make the first A at 75%, the second at 50% and the third at 25% and I wasn’t able to figure out how to do that.

You are not limited to just learning your ABC you can also create worksheets to learn numbers, measurements and even time! You are only limited by your imagination!

The more I use the software, the more I discover.  The software is a fantastic way to help you gain some control over what your child is learning.  I love that I can create a worksheet based on activities that my kids are interested in.  I can create them quickly and can print them whenever I want.

You can download the StartWrite software as a free trial and try it before you buy it.

This is a great affordable piece of software for people looking to get a little creative with their child’s learning!
