6+1 Writing Traits min booklet is written in kid friendly language. Students can use the mini-booklet to check their writing piece to make sure they have included the writing traits. Each trait has the students reflecting on their writing.
(For example: My beginning will make you want to read more. You will be interested in my piece because...) There are three reflections for each trait.
The booklet is small enough that if students create a "strategies" pocket in their writer's notebook it will fit nicely!
If you are unsure how to assemble the mini-book, Directions can be found at: http://www.edzone.net/~mwestern/mini.pdf (Start with page 2)
