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.

My son doesn’t enjoy writing but I find this an effective curriculum.

Simple short lessons!

I got this because I needed to fulfill the writing spot of the curriculum kit. I was planning on getting a different program somewhere else instead of using this, but I ended up very happy with this! This is something we ended up using daily and something I'm glad I got. Each daily lesson is so short it keeps my student's attention. Sometimes they have to write sentences sometimes they end up just circling the correct answers etc, but there is enough of a variety to make it interesting. I actually ended up liking this so much that I plan on continuing this program next year!


I liked that these lessons were not long and was a great way to ease into beginning to write.

Fun and interactive

This was a great intro into the importance of descriptions and details when it comes to writing. My son loves making comic books and this was a great tool to help advance his stories and grow his vocabulary for storytelling.


I’m helping a 1st grade become more confident in her writing the lessons are easy to teach and helps her learn how to be a better writer
