Full Review:

Understanding how to write a complete sentence is a struggle for many children. Rainbow Sentences, an app from educational-app powerhouse Mobile Education Tools, calls in color to help kids get a better grasp on the different elements of a sentence and how they come together.

This is an intuitive, beautifully designed app that's completely customizable to fit a child's needs. Users can choose from three levels of difficulty, and choose from different types of color-coding for all kinds of learners—kids even develop their own theme background. Positive word placement reinforcement is encouraged verbally, as each sentence is spoken aloud as it's created, and using color-coding for the different parts of a sentence. Once a child has mastered the five W's of a simple sentence, build his skills with 5 additional levels of sentence complexity.

This app's not all work though; as children ace sentences, they earn puzzle pieces that come to life once a level is mastered, which encourages continued play. Regardless of where a child's sentence-building skills are, this app's got something to challenge and help his skills grow.

Teacher Features:
Kid-friendly graphics and interactivity help successfully teach the 5 W's of sentence building.
