The Learn English Sentence Master app is a useful tool to teach children about sentence structure or to help an EAL child develop their knowledge of the English language.
What The Children Do:
Children are given a list of jumbled up words and they must put them in the correct order to form a sentence. There are hundreds of sentences for the children to work through and they get progressively harder as the levels increase – eventually, children will be asked to complete whole paragraphs.
To make the app more challenging there is a time limit in which the children must complete the sentence and if they place a word in the wrong place they face a time penalty.
It’s a very simple app but is very effective and I think it’s a useful tool to have in any school as it can be used with children of all ages.
How It Works:
The children simply need to tap the word they think comes next in the sentence. Once they’ve got the answer right, the app will verbally read the entire sentence out to them. It’s very easy to use and children will be able to work independently through the activities.
Why It’s Good:
I like this app because it becomes progressively more difficult so the children are constantly making progress. I also like the sheer amount of sentences on offer as it will keep children learning for a long period of time. It’s also very easy to use and can be played multiplayer so the children can challenge each other.
