This month’s App is Sentence Builder. In order to build a sentence in English that is grammatically correct and makes sense, it is important for children to first understand the basic principles of sentence structures.

Sentence Builder helps your child learn about words, sentences, pronunciation, grammar, and punctuation.  The app starts with simple sentences and progresses to more complex sentences. The focus is on daily life situations, with many references to numbers, colors, and dialogue.

Each word can be clicked for the sound of the word, and words can be rearranged for your child to build a proper sentence.  They can start with the built-in sentences, then create their own sentences and use their own voice to record sentences and words.  The app can also be customised with your own pictures, words and sentences. There are two levels;

  • Level one is designed for kindergarten and first grade students
  • Level two is designed for first grade and second grade students

It is ideal for self-paced learning.  It can be used to teach your child grammar, sentence structure, and develops their listening skills.

Find it here (for Apple) or here (for Android).
