Apps for Working on Sentences, plus a GIVEAWAY!
When I have a few minutes left at the end of a session, I LOVE to use apps that target sentence structure. Here are some of my favorites:
Fun with Verbs and Sentences: Hamaguchi. ($15.99 in the App Store.)
This app is one of my favorites. The child chooses a character, an action, and an object, (such as " boy is catching a bubble".) After choosing, the child watches an animated movie of the sentence, gets to record and listen. Even my little preschoolers enjoy this one!
I am LOVING Sentence Builder from Abi Talk ($4.99 in the app store). There are three levels, in which children create sentences about a picture using scrambled words. Non-readers can hear recordings of the words and put them in order, readers of course read the words. My favorite feature is the ability to use your own pictures and create the scrambled sentences. My students love to build sentences describing funny animal pictures (that I find through Google images.)
Language Builder by Mobile Education ($9.99) in the app store, helps students understand sentences, create sentences with increasing independence through a cueing hierarchy, and improve expressive language by recording and playing back the sentence.
