Class Tech Tips: Build Sentences with Sentopiary: Grammar Practice on iPads

Sentopiary is a fun and simple app for learning grammar by building sentences. With a clean and crisp user interface, the colorful word parts stand out on the screen and make it easy for students to navigate. The app has four levels that match national curriculum in elementary and middle school classrooms by altering levels of complexity and vocabulary.

In the classroom this app can be used for whole class modeling, individual practice or even literacy stations. Kids can use Sentopiary at home or afterschool to practice grammar and sentence structure. This iPad app has two modes. The sentence creation mode lets users choose a level of difficulty and then build sentences. In Sentopiary‘s challenge mode students are given a sentence and asked to match the grammar structure (articles, verbs, nouns, pronouns, etc.) with the words in the sentence.
