Daily Language Review, Grade 5 is loaded with focused practice exercises.
Weekly units presented in a Monday-Thursday format that includes:
two sentences to edit, including corrections in punctuation, capitalization, spelling, grammar and vocabulary
three items that practice a variety of language and reading skills
Friday practice cycles through five formats:
identifying and correcting mistakes
choosing reference materials
figurative speech (similes, metaphors)
The short daily lessons may be approached in several ways:
Make overhead transparencies and conduct the lessons as an oral activity with the entire class.
Reproduce the pages for individuals or partners to work independently.
Check the answers as a group using the overhead transparency.
Occasionally use a lesson to test how individuals are progressing in their acquisition of skills.
