Syntax like a ninja!

Good morning Tek-Ninjas! As a lover of all things "Ninja" I am easily engaged by things with "ninja-osity". Yes. I made that word up. But you know what I mean. 

Multiple Adjustments
One of the Smarty Ears apps that I've been so impressed with is called "Sentence Ninja". It is a very powerful education tool, which teaches sentence and grammar skills, all the while recording data.  It retails for only $19.99. 

 Per the app designer: "Sentence Ninja is a multi-player multi-level app designed to improve sentence structure skills in children and adults. Designed by a certified speech-language pathologist." The app teaches syntax, aka, word order. 

Sentence Ninja is easily and very customizable to fit most learner's needs. Used in conjunction with a therapist's clinical reasoning, it can be a powerful teaching tool. With 39 levels ranging from simple to complex phrases, syntax teaching can be fun and effective. 

Using the Smarty Ears Therapy Report Center app, which I blogged about awhile back, the clinician or teacher can easily and quickly "dump" students into Sentence Ninja quickly. Data can be collected and shared as needed. 

So, if you are working on Syntax, be sure to take a closer look at Sentence Ninja!
