Use this month to celebrate Thankfulness.
As I think about what should be written this month, my memory recalls friends and districts which encourage or mandate the use of 6 Traits. First, let me say, Six Traits is a wonderful idea. For myself, the ideas were solid, but I often I was at a loss for how to ultimately tie them all together. Today, as I was doing a google search, Six Traits popped up in my writing search. It only took a few minutes to go over the concepts; they matched SFW in every way! The templates for SFW are the missing link to tie it all together!
Strategies for Writing dovetails perfectly with 6 Traits, providing concise, simple templates to generate strong writing for all genres. In fact, the SFW templates complete six straits, supporting it in all aspects of the program. (https://www.thoughtco.com/six-traits-of-writing-2081681)
If you are a teacher who follows six traits, but are a little unsure of where and how to implement the traits for the child who needs clarity, give Strategies for Writing a try! It might be just the gift you need for this month!
