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.

Daughter didn't love it

My daughter didn't love this book series at first, but I absolutely love it. I think it does a great job of addressing the details and different areas of writing that she'll need to know. This year, she's giving me a lot less push back, so I guess she's gotten used to doing it.

Daily writing

My 8 year old struggles with writing. This workbook has been amazing for her. It’s very easy for her to understand and I like how it has instructions/ideas for the lessons prior to starting. This makes it easier for both of us.

Daily 6-Trait Writing Grade 3

This workbook was very helpful for keeping my third grader on track and pace with her writing instruction. It's not what I would call a full writing program. You'll want to supplement with having actual stories written, but these are quick daily lessons that cover the mechanics and style of good writing. Each day comes with an instructional paragraph for the teacher. It's not a blast, but it's efficient and effective. We will continue with this quick and easy program as we move up in the grades.


Work is nicely laid out to practice writing.

Does the job better than most!

This is not our favorite subject, but this is our favorite method we've found to teach these skills. Each skill is broken down into simple, easy to understand and complete steps, making bite-sized, almost painless progress towards becoming a better writer!
