Classroom teachers, currently teaching the primary grades, who have explored how to teach the traits to five and six year olds, created this guide of thirty six lessons. This group of eager and excited professionals took the time to teach each of these lessons in their classrooms to their students.
We know these lessons work. We have tested them. We know these lessons produce good work.
We have included student samples. In order to create a viable focus for traits lessons in the primary grades, kindergarten and first grade exclusively, our group borrowed a key idea from Vicki Spandel.
In her book Creating Young Writers: Spandel emphasizes that it may be difficult for young writers, or pre-writers to grasp the notion of the traits. In Creating Young Writers, Spandel gives advice on how to conceptualize each of the six traits.
Later in her volume, she briefly outlines teaching ideas using the traits as concepts. Spandel shares some awesome lesson ideas and our group realized right away that conceptualizing the traits leads to a plethora of primary writing lessons. Lessons we had previously taught, we rethought in light of conceptualization.
New lessons popped into our heads. On this page, we feature lessons from the print guide we created, and we also feature resources that the Six by Six Guide has inspired since its publication. Please feel free to borrow ideas featured on this page, and please consider supporting this website by purchasing the complete guide created through this project by clicking here.
