Product Description: 

Rainbow Sentences is a reading, language, and vocabulary tutorial program designed for use by children with language, developmental or learning disabilities, autism spectrum disorder, or adults with aphasia. It is designed to help students improve their ability to construct grammatically correct sentences by using color-coded visual cues.

Main Features: 

  • The who, what, where, and why parts of sentences are color-coded to help students recognize and understand how combinations of these parts create basic sentence structure.
  • Students will learn how to recognize the parts of sentences such as nouns, verbs, and prepositions, improve their understanding of how combinations of these parts create basic sentence structure.
  • Students have the opportunity to record their sentences in their voice to improve their receptive and expressive language skills.
  • Incorporates multi-sensory teaching strategies by providing students with a hands-on sentence construction experience that enables them to integrate the printed word with the spoken word as they manipulate words on the screen to match the picture presented.
  • The built-in color coding in Rainbow Sentences is supportive of a noun phrase/verb phrase sentence structure with more advanced levels including a modifying phrase and a rationale clause. 
  • Sentences are color-coded for these specific structural phrases (as opposed to individual parts of speech) to help students build an understanding for the WH elements (specifically the who, what, where and why) within a sentence. 
  • Educators can establish their color scheme for these underlying phrase structures, enabling them to work within a modified version of the established color-coding systems with which their students may be familiar.
  • Includes a playback button for students to check the accuracy of the sentences they have created, as well as record and play options that enable them to read and listen to the sentence they have just created in their voice. 
  • Helps students develop improved self-monitoring skills for the content of what they are reading and the accuracy with which they are reading it.
  • 165 images to create a sentence from.
  • Words are spoken as they are being dragged for non-readers.
  • Words can be color-coded for added visual support.
  • Word groups can be selected to simplify sentence construction.
  • 6 levels of sentence complexity.
  • Pictograph lessons to help students learn proper sentence construction.
  • Record feature allows students to record sentences in their voice.
