Literally, this means, “If you don’t enter the tiger’s cave, you will not catch its’ cub.
That is equivalent to, “Nothing ventured, nothing gained“.

Sentence Ninja is an app that was designed to improve sentence structure skills in children and adults. It was designed and authored by two certified speech-language pathologists. Author: Susan Rose Simms, MA, CCC-SLP, and Designer: Barbara Fernandes, MS, CCC-SLP. That’s a good thing, because in case you didn’t know, speech-language pathologists have black belts in the ability to understand and teach correct phrase and sentence structures. They are your local language specialists and have a wealth of understanding in the components of language such as; helping students better understand word meanings, how to put words together to make complete sentences, and with knowing how to teach word combinations that fit specific speaking situations.
A super fun reinforcer is the fact that the students get to earn award belts as they complete each group of levels beginning with simplicity at the Subject and Verb level and work your way toward complex sentences that include Subject + past tense verb + prep phrase + verb + and + verb phrase. Once earned, they are displayed here on the belt Dojo page. Very motivating!
If a student learns to put sentences in the correct order down, then they will also increase their ability to say sentences correctly out loud. The student will in return increase their overall receptive and expressive language skills and that will help them to improve their functional communication skills. Very awesome! As that is the ultimate goal for many of our language delayed students.
Enjoy the app and please take the time to watch the cool promotional video below to gain an even better understanding of it.
