Rainbow Sentences by Mobile Education Tools is a fun app that teaches children how to form sentences using color. Currently at $7.99 this App is priced just right for the hours of educationally content presented in a fun format. Rainbow Sentences would work well for young children just learning how to create proper sentences as well as older children struggling with the concept. According to the Rainbow Sentences App page, “Rainbow Sentences is designed to help students improve their ability to construct grammatically correct sentences by using color coded visual cues. The who, what, where, and why parts of sentences are color coded to help students recognize and understand how combinations of these parts create basic sentence structure.”
The app begins with the settings page which originally prompts you to enter your User Name. From there you have total control of how the game is presented. There are three levels of complexity and each level allows the User turn on or off the 1) Line Color Coding, 2) Word Color Coding and 3) Word Grouping. The ability to customize each level allows the User the opportunity to continue to challenge themselves as they master new concepts and longer sentence structures.
When you get the sentence correct you are prompted to record the sentence so the User can hear the sentence in their voice. You can then save the recorded sentence to the archive to play back at a later time or email it.
If the User cannot form the correct sentence after two tries the app plays a lesson guiding the User through the proper formation.
After getting 5 correct answers the User is rewarded with a puzzle piece. When the User wins all of the puzzle pieces in the Level the puzzle comes to life with a short animation sequence.
Rainbow Sentences comes with 168 images to create sentences. With the added customization described above this will provide hours of playtime. As I mentioned before this app is recommended for young children just learning sentence structure as well as older children struggling with the concept. At $7.99 this app is well worth it.
