Mobile Education App - TOS Review

We love using apps for learning.  

The iPhone and iPad are seriously awesome tools for all students and especially homeschoolers.  Josie loves playing on ours and, while Angry Birds is great for getting through a long dinner out, I really love the educational apps available.

We were given a chance to review a great app from Mobile Education Store called Rainbow Sentences.


This app was a bit beyond where Josie is with reading and grammar so I did most of the playing with this one.  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 kids recognize and understand how combinations of these parts create basic sentence structure.

The colors are bright and the pictures are really fun.  Josie ended up playing with it with me and really enjoyed it.  She loved getting the puzzle pieces as a reward for getting an answer correct.  I'm really excited for her to be able to use this over the next year or two to learn more about grammar.


From my past searches, it seems like there are a ton of early learning apps, but not much for the older kids.  I think this is a great app for those of you with kids in elementary classes or needing a little help with sentence structure.  It's defiantly fun enough for them to think they are just playing a game instead of getting a grammar lesson.
