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.

Great Addition January 17, 2015
Reviewer: Melissa W.  
I love the weekly break down in this book and the progression and building of concepts and reviews. Our son often has a difficult time elaborating thoughts or ideas in assignments and this book has been wonderful in building his skills and confidence in becoming a better writer. This book really has exceeded the expectations I had when purchasing it.

Excellent Writing Book August 9, 2013
Reviewer: Mrs. Cook  
We love using this workbook. The daily assignments are easy to understand. My second grader is able to work freely on these lessons with very little help from me. It challenges her creativity to come up with interesting topics, describing words, etc. She's a natural-born storyteller, so this material works well for her. And, the bonus is, she doesn't even know that she's learning because she's too busy having fun being creative!

Promotes Writing Skills September 2, 2012
Reviewer: Book Geek  
On the outside this book seemed like it was going to be really easy to get completed in a couple of minutes every day. I love that it is not that simple. I love that the book challenges my daughter to really think of creative stories and sentences which lay the foundation for writing skills later on down the road. Every last day of the week they are encouraged to take what they learned from the that week and apply it to a short story/paragraph. I also like that your child is not bombarded all at once as the book focuses on one trait of writing at a time.
