Daily Paragraph Editing, Grade 5
Each two-page spread in the Grade Level Teacher Books contains two of the student's daily editing paragraphs on the right-hand side and the corresponding corrected teacher's editing key on the left. Student pages are reproducible and include a "Watch For" icon in the margin which clues them in to some specific types of errors to watch for. Each error is corrected in red in the key, and a helpful error summary is also included with a total for each type of error found in the paragraph. The error summary allows you to inform your student how many errors of each type there are, if desired, to help them find each one. A short "Language Handbook" is found in the back, and makes referencing capitalization, punctuation and language usage easy and accessible through the use of charts and examples.
This series gives students a manageable paragraph of editing practice each day. Each book consists of 36 weekly lessons. Monday - Thursday daily editing worksheets are four paragraphs (one each day) on related subject material filled with capitalization, punctuation, spelling, and language usage errors. A writing prompt related to that week's topic is given on Friday so the student may compose their own paragraph.
An easy-to-use way to include a little bit of editing into the little bit of time you have each day. ~ Jess
