DOL/Writing

Hi all!

This will be my second year teaching third and I have tons of revisions to make this time around! First and foremost, is writing. I noticed that the 3rd graders I had last year had a difficult time with basic writing skills - punctuation and sentence structure, before we could even begin combining sentences into paragraphs.

Do you do DOL? I think it's definitely effective and good practice, but where do you get the DOL activities from? Is there a free website I don't know about?

Thanks!

I do "DLI" it is a similar program, but the difference is, it spirals. So once something is taught, it keeps coming up week after week so the kiddos have more practice with it. We had to purchase at school...

I use DOL as my morning work. It helps the class with their basics. I did it everyday-- well almost everyday last year and I saw a huge improvement in their sentence writing. It gives us a chance to talk about grammar topics that might not come up otherwise We had some pretty in depth conversations about verb usage. I will definitely do it again this year. plus it is easy morning work and they LOVE correcting it on the smartboard.

There are several books you can buy that have DOL's for the whole year.

We've been encouraged not to do DOL. Our literacy specialist says that with the population at our school (extremely at-risk) that students don't need to see spelling errors, grammar errors, etc. displayed on the board.

I still like the idea of doing it, though! I think it's great to help them practice editing.

I use DOL from Great Source. I post sentences about 3 times a week as part of our morning routine. Our standardized tests expect students to find spelling, capitalization, and punctuation mistakes, so I do think it is of value. As we near our testing time, I put bubbles under the possible errors and add a "no errors" bubble, so they can practice the format that they'll see on the test.

Editing in writing

I went to a writing class this summer. My students had carry over issues too and we got a book called Quick Start to Writing Workshop Success by Janiel Wagstaff. It has a revision strategies chapter......she says to circle skills they know:successfully tackling skill use in everyday writing. Any way the whole book is good it has essential routines, model lessons, cross-curricular writing idea, keys to editing and revision, conferring how-to's, and more!
See what you think!

We made our own "DOL" and incorporated reading and writing. We revamped a program called
They had to find mistakes in sentences, and eventually paragraphs.
Each day they had to add a specific word- specific noun, adjective, verb, add how, where so by the end of the week, they had a THICK sentence.
Eventually, when we started teaching reading strategies, we added specific questions that included sequencing, inferencing and checking for understanding.
The entire thing spiraled and included both DOL and reading comprehension. It improved our writing and grammar so much!
