Sentence Maker

Sentence-MakerSentence Maker, by Grasshopper Apps, is just terrific! Somehow, Sentence Maker fell through the cracks and we didn't review it when we first started using it. This simple, yet sensational, the app is powerful. We've had students working with Sentence Maker for some time and have seen the marked improvement in their skills. One of the first things we noticed and liked was how easy this app is to navigate and customize. The developers have included all the essentials. The left to right directionality mode is perfect for reading readiness purposes and it is great to have a choice of upper or lower case letters.

Grasshopper Apps states, "We believe that educational apps need to be insanely fun, highly educational and affordable for all. Period." TWA couldn't agree more, and highly recommend all of their apps to teachers, parents, and caregivers everywhere.


  • You decide what stage of sentences to focus on. Whether you want to get started with 2-word combos or jump straight to 5-word sentences is all up to you.
  • Turn Tile Magnets ON or OFF from the settings page. The tile magnet automatically snaps letters in their place. This is great for toddlers with little fingers but now you can turn this off if you are ready to take your spelling skills to the next level
  • Add your own voice - now your toddler can learn everything in mommy's or daddy's voice
  • Add your own items - add your own pictures and start making sentences with the items around your home!
