HELP EVERY CHILD ACHIEVE WRITING SUCCESS
Students tap words in the grid to build sentences in the simple word processor, then hear each sentence automatically spoken aloud as they complete it, helping them to identify any mistakes and make corrections.
Students can even hear words before they write them, helping them to find the word they want and achieve writing success.
USE ANY SEQUENCE OF SENTENCES
Set up any sequence of sentences for your learners in a few seconds by simply typing or pasting them in. What’s more, get free, ready-made Sentence Sets via our LearningGrids site, which is fully accessible from within the app!
PROVIDE DIFFERENTIATED SUPPORT
Numerous support options ensure that children of all abilities are given the right level of challenge to experience success:
- For students just getting started with writing, show the completed sentence as a model on the grid, so they can copy it word-for-word.
- A model sentence in a popup enables the students to see the sentence, but not copy it. The popup must be closed before they write.
- A spoken model means the student can listen to the sentence, but not see it.
- Automatically randomise the words on the grid, or provide additional support by showing them in the correct sentence order.
USE PICTURES FOR ADDITIONAL SUPPORT AND MOTIVATION
Adding a picture to each sentence provides students with an additional cue. Choose pictures from your photo library, or snap them straight into the grid with your iPad camera. The pictures can be sent into the document too, helping pupils when reading their work back.
CRICK PICTURE LIBRARY NOW INCLUDED
NEW - the acclaimed Crick Picture Library is now included with the app! Browse or search the carefully categorized pictures to add child-friendly support to your Sentence Sets. Our Picture Library contains over 2,500 curriculum-related pictures, drawn by our own artist.
WRITING TO BE PROUD OF
The child-friendly Sassoon font included in the app makes Clicker Sentences documents look great on-screen and on paper.

Ratings and Reviews
Copy and paste
Absolutely love this app. I have clicker docs as well and have used it with my class with amazing results. My son loves how easy it is to write sentences using pictures he has taken. Would really love it if clicker sentences had the same copy and paste features as clicker docs which would allow us to put the sentences into word using cloud on with drop box. This would make it even more functional in a school environment that doesn't have air printers or Clicker PC program.
