**** 5 star review from Fun Educational App - "Must Have Teaching App for Teachers and Parents"
"Sentence Builder App is an incredible teaching tool and a Top Pick in educational app created by the popular developer AbiTalk. Aimed at helping students learn to create grammatically correct sentences. This app gives students multiple levels of practices using various sentence structures. With over 225 built in sentences and a fully customizable 'create your own' section, the possibilities of this app are endless. "
A fun new sentence builder app to learn about words, sentences, pronunciation, grammar, and punctuation.
The ONLY sentences app that can be fully customized with your own pictures, words and sentences.
We worked closely with teachers, parents and kids to design and test this app.
Students can move the words around to build the sentence themselves. Start with the built-in sentences. Then create your own sentences, use your own images, and use your voice to record your own sentences and words.
Each word can be clicked for the sound of the word, and words can be rearranged to make a proper sentence.
The app starts with simple sentences and progresses to more complex sentences. The sentences focus on daily life situations, with many references to numbers, colors, and dialogue.
This app is ideal for self-paced learning or home schooling. It teaches kids grammar, sentence structure, and develops their listening skills.
This game is is like having a private tutor to teach your child one on one.

What's New in Version 2.03
** Fixed the no Internet issue. The app uses the voice service that requires the Internet connection. When there is no Internet, the app will disable the system voice feature.
** Added "skip the completed sentences" option. If the skip the completed sentences option is checked, the app will skip the completed sentences and only play the sentences that are not done yet.
** Added the checked marks for the completed sentences
** Save the configuration settings. When the app exits, all the configuration settings are saved.
As an elementary school Englis as a second language teacher, I use this app often with my beginning readers, kindergarten through 2nd grade. This app allows them to build detailed sentences that are far beyond the level they would be able to achieve without the app. This is because in addition to the illustration, the sentences are spoken and each word the student touches to drag in place is spoken too. I like that the punctuation is required to complete the sentence. I also like how you can use settings to have only the words needed to build the sentence OR have extra words that don't belong in the sentence, raising the level of difficulty. There is a little celebration (a diamond appears and there is the sound of applause) when the student correctly completes the sentence. This is not a game, however. There is no score card or anything. The students just keep building and building sentences, so they tire of playing after 5-10 minutes.
I do like it & intend to use with a specific student. Wish I could select the sentences I want to target. Did not see that option in the settings....maybe I overlooked it. Will check again. If I find it I will change my rating.
Love the app but....
It crashes since the update when I try to create my own lessons. Please fix.
