These five trait lessons are designed for single writing workshop minilessons (approximately 15-20 minutes each). The accompanying student/writer instructions have follow-up activities that may be used the same day for practice in existing writing or extended for many days as part of a larger publishing project. Traits included: ideas, organization, voice, word choice, conventions.
I am a proud 2004 graduate of Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. I majored in elementary education and minored in counseling psychology. Since then, I've completed my master's degree and earned my All-Grades Reading Specialist License. I have taught third grade in Indiana for eight fabulous years. Reading and writing are my favorite subjects, but I love creating hands-on math lessons too. I strive to inspire my students to become critical thinkers and lifelong learners. Teaching is so much fun!
These materials make my life easier, so I hope they work for you too! If you have any questions or want further explanation of a particular product, please don't hesitate to ask. I'm happy to answer any questions and provide insight into your literacy program.
