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.

Love this daily book

It’s great to have something quick and effective to practice on every day


We are a few weeks into this book and we like it so far! It’s nice to have solid and concise points to follow to teach writing, as I have heard from teacher friends that it is a hard skill to teach. I like the writing prompts also, helps my daughter to think of new ideas in general to write about when we do free writing.


This book was a struggle for us at first. My son’s least favorite thing to do is creative writing. Every time I grabbed this book he said “oh no, not that book.” As we keep using it, my son is getting used to the set up and it is certainly improving his writing skills. He still doesn’t love writing but he doesn’t complain about having to do it anymore which proves the value of this book.
