We used the 6+1 Writing Traits curriculum this past year in first grade. During the first two quarters, we focused on Ideas and Conventions. These are the Smart Board lessons that I created to teach the Ideas Trait.
These lessons meet the following first grade writing Common Core standard:
W3: Write narratives in which they recount two or more appropriately sequenced events, include some details regarding what happened, use temporal words to signal event order, and provide some sense of closure
• 13 individual Smart Board Lessons (5-8 slides each, Notebook file)
• 2 Reproducibles (PDF)
Look for the remaining Traits lessons individually AND in a year-long unit plan bundle!
