Special Sentences - This is the lifecycle of a frog.

To work on a topic, tap its title text or picture in the main view. The topics first sentence will be shown, and the devices build in sound will read the sentence aloud. If you have the Hint set to Always then the sentence to make will be shown in blue, if this setting is set to Flashed then the sentence will be briefly shown before disappearing. You can also chose to have no hint, helping children to develop their listening skills instead of relying of visual written hints. 

Below the sentence to create, all the words and punctuation need to complete the sentence are provided. To put them in the correct order, simply drag the correct card to the blank link. If you need to hear the full sentence again, tap the image. You can also tap word cards to hear the word aloud. Having correctly placed all the words in the sentence, you can move onto the next page by pressing the blue arrow.  

There is an option to present a reward when all the words on a page have been matched: this wiggles all the cards and plays applause. This is on by default, but you can turn it off in the app's Settings (see Chapter 7). Other settings include options to display the text style on the cards in uppercase, lowercase, sentence case and title case, as well as being able to change the font.

To return to the main view showing the list of topics, tap the < or the app icon in the action bar at the top.

You can reveal the topic's table of contents, by tapping the sentence number at the top, as shown below. 

Tap the entry for any sentence to go to that sentence, or tap the sentence number at the top again to close. To prevent the table of contents from being shown, disable editing in the app's Settings.
