I don't know how many times I have heard people say that grammar skills should not be taught in isolation. If you teach fourth grade, you know that sometimes this is a challenge especially if you are testing writing in April. Many times writing time is grouped in with reading, and this leaves me with 30 to 45 minutes of writing time. This is my solution to help teach writing and the supporting standards that are assessed on the STAAR test. This will help you teach and assess both at once.
