Rainbow Sentences, by Mobile Education Store, is another incredible learning tool, just released, by the award winning developer Kyle Tomson! Initially, when using Rainbow Sentences with students, we were taken aback by how many different levels of play can be adapted for differing student’s needs. There are three levels of play with 55 sentences in each level, and 6 levels of sentence complexity. And though this may sound complicated, it’s not! Rainbow Sentences offers you have a lot of control over the play, but the interface makes it really simple to set up the levels of play. Kyle worked diligently on this app perfecting every feature and made the app customizable with every conceivable setting. Rainbow Sentences offers a unique environment for improving a student’s ability to create grammatically correct sentences.
