Writing and ELD

Hi everyone,
I received an email today from an ELD teacher asking the following:

When I’m going to teach forms to 4th and 5th graders who are EA, what can I do with them that is more advanced? If I give them worksheets, they can get it, but they don’t always carry it forward in their writing. Even if I have them write sentences, they don’t carry it forward into paragraphs. How can I have them practice the forms and produce longer writing?

What advice can you offer?  Please post your comments!

Happy Teaching! Lori
