I'm Paul Solarz, 4th grade teacher from Arlington Heights, Illinois. Just about to board a plane to Phoenix (getting away from record-breaking cold weather here in the Chicago area!) Looking forward to a long weekend in warmth! :) Thanks for moderating @oodlesofteach! #5thchat
A1 - I don't do anything exceptional when it comes to Grammar Instruction. I teach it in isolation (yuck) & integrate it into Writer's Workshop. I have my kiddos watch BrainPops, SchoolHouseRocks & play games. Then, they take a Socrative quiz: https://t.co/GSkFchKRyw#5thchat
The best thing ever! You pull a sentence from a text you are reading. Then on Monday you notice elements of a good writing, Tuesday you notice parts of speech, Wednesday you revise the sentence, and Thursday you imitate the writer's style. #5thchat
I've been noticing in some of the other bigger chats folks have been leaving it off. I can't always do a chat live and the A1,A2 helps me skim through more efficiently later on.Thanks for including it! #5thchat
