Trait of the Day

In our school, the main writing program we use is 6 + 1 Traits of Writing.   I say main writing program because, like most of you, I like to use ideas from a number of different programs. 

One thing I wanted to try this year was to have the children focus on the particular trait we learned about and use it in their writing throughout the day not just during Writing Workshop.  I want them to understand that these traits are applied in all writing not just stories written during writing time. 

I saw this idea on Pinterest and made something to use in my own classroom.  I am going to laminate it and then use Vis a Vis to write the trait for the day.
