Daily 6-Trait Writing: Grade 1 (Timberdoodle Review)

Thrift Schooling


There is a point in learning when it just seems to click. I am at that point with my youngest which thrills my heart as a home educator. As the youngest of five, I have always included him in the lessons but this is the one year where he is eager to have work of his own that (in his mind) matches the level of his older siblings. Daily 6-Trait Writing Grade 1 part of Timberdoodle's First Grade Kit mimics a book that his older brother is currently working through. They each have their own book geared toward their own levels. In the front of the book, you find a scoring rubric, based on the six traits writing model to assess your student's writing. This is the perfect model for parents hesitant about grading or scoring their student's writing material, even in other subjects. This works as an excellent framework, or foundation, in a child's writing. The six traits include:

1. Ideas

2. Organization

3. Word Choice

4. Sentence Fluency

5. Voice

6. Conventions 

Beginning with the basics, your first grader is introduced to sentence structure while using short and easy lessons that are engaging. Filled with plenty of pictures and diagrams, this is not simply a writing workbook where your child sits there with a pen and blank piece of paper and asked to write about what they did over the weekend. With plenty of prompts and instructions, your child is learning the building blocks of writing, daily, without even realizing it. 

Parents have all that they need to successfully teach their first grader how to write. With an open-and-go lesson plan and detailed scripted instructions, parents are fully equipped with the instructions needed to teach effectively. 

Be sure to add this resource to your homeschool toolbox if you are looking for a writing resource to use as a stand alone writing program or supplemental resource in addition to your current writing program. It is easy to use and effective!
