The VOICES Six-Trait Writing Menu Headings is a set of printable headings that can be used to create a six-traits of writing bulletin board, anchor charts, etc. for your classroom's writing area. The VOICES acronym stands for each of the six traits of writing:
(excellent) word choice
Each heading includes the trait of writing, a student friendly general definition (I can...), and a cute owl!
Similar to the Cafe menu board that was introduced in The Cafe Book by Gail Boushey and Joan Moser, these headings can be used to create a VOICES board for writing with each of the six-trait headings as the top of a column with room underneath to keep track of all of the writing strategies you've taught so far. What a great reference for your students!
