Winner of BEST MOBILE APP
Edublog awards 2014
Alan Peat’s sentence types are already used in 22 countries. Now, for the first time, they are available as an app with genre-links and in-built interactivity.The Alan Peat Pocket App of Exciting Sentences provides teachers and parents with 25 ‘consistent-language’ sentence types, clearly explained and right there on either iPad or iPhone instantly at hand.
The app includes an Introduction to the sentence types with THREE sets of examples for each sentence: generic examples; genre-specific examples (both fiction and non-fiction) and Mathew Sullivan’s Introductory language/ Intermediate language/ Higher order examples.
Additionally the App includes a ‘Developmental Continuum’ designed to help schools and parents to understand when (and how!) to best introduce the sentence types – ideal for ‘whole school’ approaches to grammar.
For ease-of-use the app also features a ‘Sentence Grammar Glossary’ using plain English to explain complex grammatical features of sentences, with the useful addition of embedded teaching tips.
Finally the app also allows users to make and save their own personal notes/ lesson plans directly in-app. You can also back them up to Dropbox and email them directly from the app: two handy tools for networks of schools seeking to share ideas and planning!
