What are your thoughts on using this program. I know some research says it really doesn't work. ??

Do you mean where they have to correct a few sentences each day? I've tried that before and never saw anything positive from it. My biggest concern with it is that they were seeing mistakes so often that I'm afraid the mistakes started seeming "normal". I remember research in the past mentioning how something learned wrong once took so many more times (I forget the number) of doing it right to learn it correctly. I tend to agree with that - since kids hear sentences wrong from their parents and it's hard to break them of those same habits.

I'd personally rather see them practicing it correctly over and over again rather than concentrating on and correcting a purposefully incorrectly written sentence.

I have used Daily Oral Language and I didn't see that it helped them with their other work. They still didn't capitalize or fix their own mistakes. This year I tried the Carson Dellosa Language 4 Today and love it. It is like the DOL with a few problems a day, but covers many of the language and writing skills. This did seem to help them with other work and with the language skills on the state assessment. I felt like I did a much better job teaching those skills this year because of the daily practice.

I do Daily Language Review

By Evan Moor, which many people refer to as Daily Oral Language. Due to our new time-intensive curriculum, I cut it out. After not seeing the results I expected in grammar and punctuation, I "found" time. I like because I get to "preview" as well as review grammar.
I find that it makes a difference.
I don't have them rewrite the sentences, but teach them editing marks, so that it goes faster. Also, if there are verb tenses that need to be corrected, we as a class will repeat the correct version several times with funny voices (high-pitched, low-pitched, whisper, shout) so that they "hear' it and speak it the correct way.

I teach second grade and I also used it in fifth grade.

mentor sentences

I was just reading about this yesterday. This is an effective alternative to Daily Language and makes so much sense. Google it. There are several teachers who blog about it.

I looked up the mentor sentences and absolutely love this strategy. Plan on trying it out next year! Thanks for the advice.

Mentor Sentences

I second the vote for mentor sentences. My problem is finding time in our 90 minutes of ELAR to do them. =)
