Among the proven techniques for improving test scores is regular exposure to skills that will be required for those tests. Daily exposure to language skills -- including skills of spelling, capitalization, punctuation, and grammar -- will build students' skills and increase test scores.

I love this idea. Students would have so much fun with this, especially during the winter (if we ever have a winter again).

Friday Journals—kids write a note on Friday to their parents telling what they learned that week. The parents write a short response back to their child, and the child brings the notebook back Monday. Each parent response earns a sticker for the cover. Love it—a great way to practice letter writing, and to get parents involved. Helps the children ingrain what has been taught into their memory too.

Love this idea! Sentence Surgery...laminated unedited sentence strips, bandaid strips for ending punctuation, small round bandages for commas and quotations, tongue depressors to mark capitalization, and 'Emergency Kit' paper bags w/ red cross on them (to keep surgery supplies). Can  adjusted to use K-6...the kids loved it!
