    Month-by-Month Trait-Based Writing Instruction

    Month-by-Month Trait-Based Writing Instruction

    by Maria P. Walther and Katherine Phillips

    In this comprehensive resource, two veteran primary teachers share a multi-faceted approach to teaching writing that seamlessly combines the use of powerful mentor texts, strategy lessons, and the traits—ideas, organization, word choice, voice, sentence fluency, and conventions. Their yearlong plan—organized month-by-month—includes ideas for interactive morning messages, read-aloud suggestions, and more than 75 mini-lessons for teaching genre, grammar, the traits, and much more. Also included are reproducible planning sheets for a variety of genres and editing checklists, plus more than 250 literature suggestions. You'll find everything you need to help your young writers soar!
