Rainbow Sentences is designed to help students improve their ability to construct grammatically correct sentences by using color coded visual cues. The who, what, where, and why parts of sentences are color coded to help students recognize and understand how combinations of these parts create basic sentence structure.
Students will learn how to recognize the parts of sentences such as nouns, verbs, and prepositions, improve their understanding of how combinations of these parts create basic sentence structure. Students have the opportunity to record their sentences in their own voice to improve their receptive and expressive language skills.

Ratings and Reviews
As an elementary school English as a second language teacher, I find that many of Mobile Education Stores' apps are great. I use Rainbow Sentences because it has students think carefully about constructing grammatically correct sentences in a colorful and playful way. In the settings menu the teacher can scaffold the sentence building so that beginning kindergarteners all the way up to around the end of second grade level students can be challenged and successful. When the students correctly answer, there are some funny animated characters that come out and cheer for them. Likewise, there are words of encouragement if they answer incorrectly. The app has a statistics page so you can monitor the students' progress. One problem I have with the app is that you cannot go from a sentence that you are building to the settings or statistics page until/unless you correctly build the sentence. This creates unnecessary hassle if you want to quickly check-in on a student's progress or change the difficulty.
Great - but don’t put ads in a paid app
The app is just what I have been looking for, but every time I open the app I am forced to dismiss an add for another app the company sells. If this was a free app, then I would expect that, but this is a paid app. Remove the ads, and this would be a 4-5 star app.
Fantastic app for writing!
Until today!! I am used to seeing another app advertising when I open the app, but it easily is closed. I use this app in Occupational Therapy in schools. Today there is an advertisement for another Mobile app that I cannot get rid of. I don’t want to erase the app, but it is worthless like this.
Developer Response ,
Deb - there is a close button on the top right of the advertisement. It's a little hard to see I admit - we are going to make it bigger.
