These checker framed posters have blended the stages of writing with the Six Traits. Students will begin to make the connections between the two processes. Each stage of the writing process has been linked with the Trait/s that are highly practiced during that particular stage of writing. Post in your classroom for daily reference. Students can slide a clothespin along each poster as they begin a new stage of writing. Posters include Pre-writing, Drafting, Revising, Editing, Publishing, Ideas, Organization, Sentence Fluency, Voice, Word Choice and Conventions.
