Daily Paragraph Editing grade 8 provides 36 weeks of frequent, focused language practice to help your eighth graders learn the conventions of standard English grammar and usage. The concise daily activities are ideal warm-up exercises to begin your language arts block and are adaptable for small-group and whole-class instruction. How it works: students apply grade-level language skills to correct a paragraph on Monday through Thursday; when read together, the four paragraphs form a cohesive composition. A writing prompt on Friday relates to the weeks four-paragraph composition and gives students the chance to apply the targeted language conventions. The weekly compositions cover a broad range of expository and narrative writing forms.
