Daily 6-Trait Writing
Help your child develop writing skills using daily lessons that fit into every language arts program. Are you familiar with trait writing? Trait-based writing is an impressive method educators have developed to determine if a child's writing is skilled or not.

The six traits or characteristics that shape quality writing are content; organization; word choice; sentence fluency; voice; and conventions, which include grammar, spelling, and mechanics. It may sound ominous, but Daily 6-Trait Writing has made it effortless.

With 125 dynamic writing lessons, Daily 6-Trait Writing will provide your child practice and instruction concerning all the skills essential to becoming a competent writer. Research proves that a solid understanding of the six traits of writing improves a child's ability to write successfully, and just fifteen minutes or less a day is all it will take. Daily 6-Trait Writing is correlated to state standards for educators, with a dash of fun for our apprentice writers.

Great Workbook

This has been a blessing for me as I teach my kids. Easy to read them the lessons every day and understand what they are to do.

Love it

This is a great way to introduce writing skills and get kids to love writing. Each day is a short and simple lesson and the instruction is scaffolded which is perfect.

Minimal Prep, Great Worksheets

I appreciated that I could pull this book out and read it right then and there and away we go. There's an easy breezy worksheet for each day and then a story suggestion at the end of the week which incorporates the work from the previous days.

Great Workbook

This has been helping our little one practice her handwriting and writing skills. We are very glad we got this book. It's quick and easy and to the point.

Excellent writing practice

Writing is not one of my son's favorite subjects. He prefers math and drawing. That said, this book has just the write amount of writing that he can get through a page a day without burning out. Ordered the next book for next year.
