    Wow, Joy's answer makes me feel pretty lame. :-) Her idea is much more comprehensive than mine.

    I do Daily Oral Language (DOL) every day. DOL has sentences to correct, identifies different grammar rules, context clues, synonyms, etc. It takes about 30 minutes (tops!). I give them a sprial notebook to use and then, on Fridays, they take a quiz over what we've done for the week.

    Grammar/Language Arts is my student's weakest point and they are doing so much better. I believe it's because of daily practice of grammar and then they use it immediately in their writing.

    You can buy a DOL workbook at the Teacher Supply Store. I've copied mine onto transperacies. We do it right after lunch so it's at a regular time each day.

    I hope this isn't too confusing and it's helpful. Good luck!
