Description

*Featured on iTunes under the Educational Games category in 2013*
***"My students and I really enjoy working on sentence and grammar skills with Sentence Ninja. The app quickly captures their attention with the colorful Ninjas, and the tasks are presented in a hierarchical fashion to build upon skills mastered. There are plenty of customization options to meet individual learner needs. I appreciate the color coded cues given during tasks. My students love recording their sentences and tracking their progress." The Appy Ladies***

Sentence Ninja is a multi-player multi-level app designed to improve sentence structure skills in children and adults. Designed by a certified speech-language pathologist, Sentence Ninja uses a fun Ninja theme to engage clients in their learning while teaching word order. Easily customizable to fit nearly every need, Sentence Ninja is a great addition to the therapy toolbox.

Created to facilitate an understanding of how correct word order impacts sentence structure, Sentence Ninja has 39 levels ranging from simple phrases to complex sentences. Each phrase or sentence has a corresponding picture. Sentence Ninja is designed to teach and reinforce the grammar rules of the English language for children, English language learners, and adults requiring rehabilitation.

When playing Sentence Ninja, the active player is depicted by a ninja figure walking across stepping stones. Players waiting to take their turn are depicted on the side of the page. With each turn, a new picture is displayed with the phrase or sentence words shown on various pieces of paper. The player will drag the words, in order, to the sentence strip at the bottom of the page. If the sentence is not correct, the words will return to their position on the picture. When done with the session, a simple tap on the done button brings the user to the reports center.

From the report center, a tap on the avatar of the client brings up the choice of report cards or awards and points. The awards and points center is a great way to help clients see the scores and any awards they have won throughout the game. Report cards are kept for each session and available to track progress monitoring over time. Sentence Ninja also includes several worksheets of various skill levels that are easily printed or emailed.

Sentence Ninja has many customization choices from the “select a player” screen and from within each target page. The facilitator can choose to record the students saying the sentences, display hints, automatically increase in complexity, or turn on color coding cues. In addition, the facilitator can select the “customize word list” to select/deselect item choices.

Sentence Ninja has the following features:
•39 levels of increasing difficulty and skill levels
•Customizable
•Up to 5 players
•Homework
•Receptive and expressive Language skills
•Data Collection over time for each student
•Compatibility with Therapy Report Center for easy report writing and progress monitoring

Customer Reviews

Students love it!

This app is so versatile because it contains so many levels of sentence structure! Your students do need basic reading skills, but other than that I use this app with my entire k-5 caseload. I work with mostly ELL students and this is a very effective way to work on sentence structure! The graphics are so fun and also appeal to a wide age range. Another great app from Smarty Ears!
