With Clicker Sentences, users learn how to arrange words into proper sentences. To do so, users are prompted with text and images. In response, they are to add to the prompt by tapping words that appear in a grid on the lower third of the screen. This action adds words and sentences to the original prompt. For additional word options, a simple finger swipe will reveal more words for users to include in their sentences. When punctuated, the completed sentence is read aloud. Any word from the grid word bank can also be read aloud by Clicker Sentences when users tap the SoundShift icon, and any and all entries can be modified by selecting the edit icon. Model sentences are presented visually or audibly to help support users as well. Plus, users can fully customize the lessons to fit their classroom material by inputting their own words and sentences, colors, guiding pictures, modeling type, and more.

Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can instruct students to use this app when creating basic sentences that include certain nouns, verbs, and other parts of speech. Students can self-check how those sentences sound out loud by using the SoundShift and sentence-reading punctuation functions.
  2. Teachers can instruct students to create a paragraph about a specific picture that the teacher has pre-loaded into this app, along with a word bank of appropriate words. Students can then construct rich paragraphs with the aid of the word bank and audible read functions. Students can export their paragraphs as a PDF or print them to be displayed around the classroom.
  3. Teachers can instruct students to go into the customizable features, and with teacher oversight, create their own word banks and pictures. Students can then switch tablets with a partner and cooperatively work on constructing sentences and using different parts of speech.
