Grasshopper Apps, one of my favorite app developers, has developed Sentence Maker app and it is currently gone free!
Sentence Maker App , similiar to Grasshopper’s Little Speller app, is an app that provides opportunities for 2, 3, 4 and 5 word combos when creating the sentence. Customizable, Sentence Maker features the ability to change the words, sentences, sound and sentence length. Compatible with iPad, iPhone/iPod Touch (Free).
It also allows options of sentence order (alphabetical or random), word order (right to left, left to right, any order), word case (upper, lower, capitalized) along with settings to turn on/off sound, sentence hints, visual hints, word hints or the tile magnet. Typical to the Grasshopper apps you can add a list of names.
A great literacy app to share with your special education or preschool and primary elementary teachers, or as a language app with the speech pathologists you work with. I am anxious to trial its use with students for functional skills as identifying and create their first and last names or create sentence on functional tasks or signs they are engaged in. I am working with a few students who are working on identifying images of basic feelings to assist with their use for communication. Using pictures and a sentence, I feel sad, I hurt, might be another way to customize this app for them. Time to give it a try!
If you have not checked out or are not familiar with Grasshopper Apps, check them out. If you work with students with emergent literacy and math skills you will find oodles of app that are customizable, clean and suited to work on a range of skills.
Check them out to see if they are a fit for your OT iTool Kit!
