A fun new sentence builder app is designed 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.
•Teacher approved content
•Two different levels
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.

•The app includes two built-in levels and self created sentences
•Level one is designed for kindergarten and first grade students

Ratings and Reviews
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.
Seriously Consider Sentence Builder
I love love love this Sentence Builder app. It's purpose is to teach children how to create sentences in a simple fashion. This app provides a large selection of sentences to choose from. Choose Level 1 or Level 2. Each word talks as it easily moves with a tap of the finger. Child is learning to read and listen to the spoken word at the same time. Think out of the box with this app - can be used for teaching grammar, vocabulary & sentence recall. Create your own lessons and target speech sounds for practice too. Can be used for preschool - 3rd grade. Create your own lessons can be a little tricky but once mastered, you can customize lessons for your children.
Not optimized for the iPad display
I was looking forward to checking this app out, and for the most part it worked. But I could not get all words to show up on the iPad screen. A few words are cut off in portrait mode, and are only visible if you turn the iPad around to landscape. Even in landscape mode, the background graphics don't fill the entire screen, leaving black patches on one side. I hope this is fixed in the coming versions, because this is otherwise an excellent concept and a brilliant app, especially the ability to add your own custom sentences and recordings,
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
