    As I read through these posts I am LOLlaughingLOL (I know....we are all typing in a hurry) at all the grammatical mistakes made on this page alone. Many teachers I know would have fits that the poster didn't capitalize sentences, the word "English" and spelled the word "a lot" as one word. So many teachers are blaming text messaging, email, blogging, and IMs as the the reasons for failing grammar scores. Maybe they have a point? LOL

    Ok. I know. Please....I am not trying to be "mean" here but making a point. Diagramming all those sentences doesn't carry over to writing. This was an excellent question! I use the Daily Language Review. Today, I used writing Cinquains to teach nouns, synonyms, adjectives, participles, and verbs. It was fun!

    LOLNow, let me sit back and carefully edit my post. LOL
