4th Grade Sentence Correction

I am looking for a website (or from your desktop docs) for sentences in need of correction (sometimes called Daily Oral Language or Daily Language Practice). I have taught 6th for two years and have now moved unexpectedly to 4th, and the sentences I have are too hard. With school starting so soon, I am hoping there's one or more teachers out there who all ready have these typed up (or knowledge of a great website to use) ready for their own 4th graders. Would you mind some sharing? Please send anything your willing to pass along to: williamsl@deerfield.k12.wi.us

THANK YOU!

There are books you can buy at teacher stores for each grade with sentences for editing. However, please check out a book entitled Caught 'ya. This book really makes editing sentences and learning grammar fun. I don't know the author off hand, but the sentences they edit are a funny and wacky story. My fourth graders really love it, and they are learning advanced grammar skills.

also consider looking at the book "Mechanically Inclined" which talks about teaching mechanics through writing and shows the research stating that correcting sentences doesn't work. I, of course, found this after I bought a copy of "Daily Language Review" for my fourth grade! The author is Jeff Anderson and the book is excellent. Food for thought anyway!

Thanks for the Education World link that provided the editing practice. This will work great for mini-lessons before Writing Workshop. Thanks again!!!

I've looked at this and I think it will be very useful for my 4th grade class.
