Hi All! I am struggling with fitting everything in to Language Arts. We (finally) have a 2 hour language arts block, where I will devote 1 hour to reading workshop and 1 hour to writing workshop daily. I need help with figuring out how to fit in word study (actually WORKING with the words, not just spelling tests) and daily oral language (like identifying parts of speech, etc.) I have tried introducing my word study words on one day in class and the rest of the work they do for homework. This is not working. I need to have a more direct hand on their word study. As for daily oral language, I was giving sentences with mistakes in them for morning work. They worked on two sentences a day and we went over them on Friday. I tried to throw a mini lesson in here or there about apostrophe and such, but my kids still really struggle. Any ideas?
