Widgit Software


A series of apps to develop early language skills

Symbols2Write is a series of apps for the iPad and Windows devices that have been specifically designed to support pupils through the process of writing. Young learners and pupils who need support in learning about sentences and the elements that construct them, can access this series of applications to support and improve their writing.

Starting from the very basics using pictures and symbols, pupils are led through simple sentence construction – subject, verb, object adding adjectives and prepositions, moving onto writing their own sentences from the given vocabulary or from picture stimuli.
