6 Traits Writing Mini Lessons is a great addition to your 6+1 or 6 Traits Writing Traits Crate! 6 Traits of Writing may be used alone to teach your students about all 6 traits! There are 71 pages!
This has changed the way I do writing. My students used to struggle to write for any length of time. It was because I didn't give them clear directions. Now, with training and these easy to follow lessons, it has made my job easier and my students love writing!

Earn TpT Credits for purchases on TpT. You get one TpT Credit for every $ you spend on TpT. Thing is, you only get the Credits after you Provide Feedback -- both a fair rating and a fair comment -- on the items that you purchase. We will round up for you, too! If you provide fair feedback on a $4.75 item, you will earn 5 credits. Every 100 Credits is worth $5 that you can apply towards future TpT purchases, but there is no need to wait until you have 100 to redeem them. 50 credits is worth $2.50, for example.
