My current grammar routine is Mini-lesson, some kind of guided practice with the students coming to the board or using white boards, then the students do an independent practice worksheet. I also look at that grammar skill in their writing that week. What I'm doing isn't effective with the kids I teach. They get it when I teach it and we're doing guided practice, but aren't transferring it to their worksheet or their writing. They take way too long on the worksheets, and it cuts into their Daily 5 time, which I think is more important. I prefer activities that are authentic as much as possible, and I don't really use worksheets for any other subject. Any suggestions on how I can do a better job teaching this?
