Watch kids grow a firm grasp of the English language through working their grammar muscles in a fun and healthy way by constructing and deconstructing sentences.
Guided by Common Core standards, Grow Grammar was developed for elementary and middle school students, and provides a fresh contemporary approach to a traditional subject. A knowledge of grammar principles is now believed by many educators to enhance and support the development of literacy skills including reading and writing. An understanding of grammar is also important for learning other languages.
Grow Grammar is a classroom app which works equally well in the home, and is suitable for environments where iPads are shared. It is effective for both group activities and individual study.
Grow Grammar comes equipped with two modes of interaction: “create” and “challenge”. In “create” mode, students build their own sentences using a dynamic, grammar-based tree structure. In “challenge” mode, students work in the opposite direction by analyzing the underlying grammar and correctly identifying parts of speech: articles, nouns, verbs, adjectives and prepositions.
Grow Grammar has four levels for students to work through, each more challenging than the last. With each successive level, students grapple with increasingly complex grammatical structures and more advanced vocabulary. Students may work independently, moving through the levels at their own pace, or as advised by a teacher or parent.
Level 1: Students build sentences with articles, nouns, pronouns and verbs in the present tense.
Level 2: Students expand their sentences with adjectives, direct objects, and past and future verb tenses.
Level 3: Students add prepositional phrases to both noun phrases and verb phrases.
Level 4: Students build sentences that incorporate adverbs and progressive verb tenses.
Students are motivated by the opportunity of moving up a level and by expressing themselves creatively in the context of their peers. With an ample and rich vocabulary at their fingertips, kids can learn grammar and have fun all at the same time. Go Grow Grammar!
Grow Grammar is designed from the ground up to help children learn grammar. In Grow Grammar, kids construct their own sentences utilizing the building blocks of grammar. With four levels of play, children work their way up from simple sentences of nouns and verbs to complex sentences with adjectives and phrases. In addition to sentence building, Grow Grammar also has a challenge mode where kids work in the opposite direction, deconstructing full sentences into their grammatical parts.

Challenging, rewarding and fun!
An insightful and fun approach to learning sentence structure and grammar. The advanced levels offered some challenges
for me and my grand kids (K - 4) like the gentle, goofy fun of building silly sentences!
I just wish there were sound effects.
Cool approach to teaching language skills
Sentopiary is a neat app! As a speech-language pathologist, I have used for a few purposes:
-helping students grapple with parts of speech, an important curriculum and metalinguistic category
-working on comprehension/visualizing strategies with constructed sentences- especially silly ones
-elaborating/expanding sentence length.
I have shared with the developers, who are very responsive, that it would be a great addition to have conjunctions, particularly subordinating ones, as there are few resources for working on these with students. Sentopiary is a nice resource that is friendly for older students and I look forward to seeing it develop.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
