Exciting Sentences by Alan Peat
Alan Peat is an international author and education consultant who has excellent knowledge about teaching literacy to children. He has a number of books that you may be aware of, such as Exciting Sentences, Improving Literacy and Descriptosaurus. This pocket app is essentially a condensed version of his Exciting Sentences book that highlights the key points for teaching sentence structure.
The app contains solid, trustworthy information that’s explained very well. It’s simple to use and the layout is just like a digital book, with a contents screen that jumps you to a specific category.
The categories in the app are:
- Introduction – General information about the app.
- Sentence Types – A list of the 25 consistent-language sentence types with an explanation and examples.
- Developmental Continuum – Helps schools and parents to understand when (and how!) to best introduce sentence types.
- Sentence Grammar Glossary – Complex grammatical features explained with examples.
