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 56 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!
The clip art may appeal to younger students. Please look carefully before purchasing. These are open ended so that you can use quickly and easily and will work with upper grades, but you will need to attach a blank (included) to extend the writing.
I have created a bundle with this product and 6 Traits Writing Task Cards at the following link! Save $$ by purchasing the bundle!
