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: • language usage • identifying and correcting mistakes • combining sentences • 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.
