We spend 10 minutes doing oral review and going over the lesson. Ds then does the work as "independent work" and I grade it when he's finshed. It takes him about 15-20 minutes to do the work. I have him do all the exercises and problems because I think the practice in writing and using correct grammar and mechanics is important.
We do the oral review, I introduce the lesson and he works the required assignment. I am always at the table (our school room) for questions. Overall, the lessons are fairly short because the teacher's manual is very well planned )for Amish schools. However, there are several problems so you may skip a few or decide to do them all. Regardless, the lessons are still short. We do all of the problems and alternate days with the worksheets which are sold separately. Worksheets make for great review of the previous days lessons. HTH

This is the same as with my ds and dd. Neither of them likes going over and over stuff they already understand though, so I go over the review in the book, and only have them do the worksheets if they're stuck on something and need the extra practice.
I usually used the quiz questions in the teacher book and then briefly went over the lesson. We did most of the exercises in the book orally using a white board--because my son does not like to write.
My kids get handwriting and writing mechanics practice in other classes, so I don't have them write it all out most of the time.
