Best Kids Spelling And Grammar Apps For National Grammar Day

National Grammar Day is a day promoting the use of good grammar, a celebration of all the weird and wonderful rules that make up the English language. Grammar is fundamental for piecing sentences together and actually making sense. We’re still not sure how exactly children pick up grammatical skills but, impressively, they do because they’re usually chatting away in no time. However it’s still your job to offer them all the help and support the need to develop their literacy skills. We’ve put together a list of iPad, iPhone, and Android apps that will help support your child’s reading and writing development.

Action Words

Action words are the bare bones of language, so it’s important that your child picks them up as soon as they can. This app uses lovely high quality photographs to engage the children in learning new words. It’s also heavily customisable, so you can add new actions and concepts.

Great for: 3+ years

ABC Genius

ABC Genius provides children with the writing basics, learning how to compose and identify letter shapes and sounds. It includes a variety of games including ‘ABC Tracing’, ‘Find the missing letter’, and maze and puzzle problems.

Great for: 2 – 5 years

Sentence Ninja

This colourful and engaging app captures children’s attention with its game-feel, while teaching children about sentence structure. Everyone can get involved with this app with its multi-player mode and 39 levels that gradually increase with difficulty.

Great for: 5+ years


Intellijoy’s Reading app helps children blend sounds into words; read and form simple words; and learn word families. The app is made up of six different word games and your child is guided through each activity by the on-screen teacher who offers support and positive reinforcement.

Great for: Under 6s


Grammaropolis gives personalities to the different parts of speech. Each character is based on the role they play in the sentence. From the shady pronoun always trying to take the noun’s place to the motherly conjunction who just wants everyone to get along. It’s a fun way for children to familiarise themselves with grammatical terms.

Great for: 6+ years
