Fantastic! This app is great for syntax development. It has so many levels of support so every student can be successful. I would LOVE to see other types of sentences added to the app such as questions and past/future tenses since many of my students struggle with those syntactical elements as well.

Terrific reading app
This is a great app for teaching correct sentence structure. The words and phrases are color coded for additional support. My sons have responded well to this app.

It's worth the money
They put so much thought into this app, it has many levels of differentiation so I can use it with different grade levels. It's simple to sit next to a student the first time playing it and alter the level if it's too hard or too easy, AND it remembers the specific level for every student the next day. Thank you! The pictures and sentences are cute, colorful, and kid friendly. If they make a mistake, a pleasant, encouraging voice helps them. The kiddos love the record feature where they can record, playback, and save their voice (while getting reading practice). This adds another level of creativity and reinforces reading with prosody. I wish all apps were at this level of professionalism. I only wish our entire grade level could afford it. Thanks, Kari

Fantastic App!
This is a wonderful app for children learning to construct sentences! The app employs a color coded system to aid children to correctly construct sentences, and the parent or therapist can change the colors, or as the child progresses, remove the color-codes system. The app has 3 difficulty levels as well. That is just the beginning!

Mobile Education Store has done it yet again. Produced a fabulous app that is customizable for all levels. I am using this with my 4 year old and 10 year old. Love the color coded visual cues. This app will continue to grow with my children for a very long time. Great investment of my money.

Multi purpose
I love this app because it is a great structured way to support syntax development for writing and speaking. The color coding also allowed us to use it to target asking and answering questions. We used color coded "question word" cards that corresponded to the parts of speech that answered each question. After a student put a sentence together, one of his peers picked a question card and formulated a sentence, the first student then answered that question based on the content of the sentence. The app also supported their articulation goals by providing them with an opportunity to record saying the sentence, then playing it back. I also love that the complexity can be increased, and the color and line visual cues can be faded. My only request would be to add the option of making the pictures more age appropriate for high school students who are working on these goals.

One wish
I love this app. The color coding and word grouping help provide support for beginning students and those who need practice to understand how to respond. The settings allow for those supports to be removed. I do wish that I could turn off the puzzle. It just distracts some of my students, and I have to manually close out of it. Then I have to get the student's attention all over again.

Very good!
As an elementary school English as a second language teacher, I find that many of Mobile Education Stores' apps are great. I use Rainbow Sentences because it has students think carefully about constructing grammatically correct sentences in a colorful and playful way. In the settings menu the teacher can scaffold the sentence building so that beginning kindergarteners all the way up to around the end of second grade level students can be challenged and successful. When the students correctly answer, there are some funny animated characters that come out and cheer for them. Likewise, there are words of encouragement if they answer incorrectly. The app has a statistics page so you can monitor the students' progress. One problem I have with the app is that you cannot go from a sentence that you are building to the settings or statistics page until/unless you correctly build the sentence. This creates unnecessary hassle if you want to quickly check-in on a student's progress or change the difficulty.

Play lesson button
Hello, I really like this app. Suggestion though. Can you take the PLAY LESSEN out of the area were the words are located? I use guided access to restrict where my daughter goes and she likes to here the instructions over and over and forget about the purpose of the game. If I block access to that part of the screen, where Play Lesson is, it prohibits grabbing the letters that are in that location. So can you move it up or have an option in the settings to remove it? Thanks!

Rainbow Sentences
Rainbow Sentences is a wonderful app for early writers or struggling writers. The sentences are color coded to match the lines of entry ensuring success for students. With 3 levels of difficulty to choose from, this app is a winner for classrooms of diverse learners. Easy to navigate and reinforcing feedback will help your student stay engaged and wanting to play more. Combined with creating sentences is the opportunity to build a puzzle for addition fun. An easy to access bar at the bottom has settings, archive of student recorded sentences and stats showing number of attempts at each sentence and correct tries. This app can be set up for multiple groups or users. The ability to email the stats/data is a plus.
