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.

Good but more of a chore

Lessons are short and it gets the job done. I've got a reluctant writer that does OK on days 1 thru 4, but hates day 5 and doesn't enjoy the book, overall, because she doesn't like writing. It's good for what it's supposed to be, but is more of a chore than an exciting lesson we get to do, because it doesn't inspire my daughter.

Short lessons

These lessons are short, straight forward, and to the point. I never get any complaints when we pull out this book. We do quite a bit of writing so I'm not sure this book taught my student anything she didn't know but it is a nice review of writing topics that can be done independently.
