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.

Daily 6-Trait Writing Grade 4

These lessons are well laid out and don't take much time to complete. A little bit every day builds your student's writing proficiency in a natural way. The book includes instruction for the teacher to give the child.

Decent and quick resource

My younger kids enjoy this product but my 8year old is not loving this product this year. It’s a valuable addition to any language arts study program. Quick and daily writing practice. Definitely important and useful.

Daily 6-Trait Writing Grade 4

Love this book. Easy to follow direct instructions that your child can complete with little to no instruction.

Daily 6-Trait Writing Grade 4

This made writing easy. It had lessons for each day that were simple and they built upon one another. The 5th day all the lessons preciously done that week helped complete a writing assignment.

Daily 6-Trait Writing Grade 4

Not super exciting, but very useful. My daughter needs to strengthen her writing and this book is helping her to do that. I know it's not as flashy as a lot of the things that Timberdoodle offers but I've been very pleased to see the large amount of topics covered in this book in detail, with such small assignments each day
