This document is the first of 6 documents that were created to enhance the 6 Traits of Writing program. I use them in my students' writing binders as dividers. I introduce each trait using a mentor book, an anchor chart and a divider. Individual lessons that support each trait is later placed after the divider. This helps to keep my students organized. It also helps them to see the "big picture". I also print each divider in different colors so that we can quickly revisit skills previously taught. I have included a mentor author(s) to support each trait. Each of the authors mentioned have an interactive website for children to visit.
