    I am a 1st year teacher looking for any and all ideas others may have about lessons that can go along with the 6+1 Traits of Writing approach. This approach focuses on voice, ideas, organization, conventions, etc... The first focus is on voice. I teach 2nd grade! Thanks for the help!

    Do you have any of Ruth Culham's books? IMO they're the best introduction to 6 + 1.

    For online resources, NWREL is a good place to start. Here are some primary grade lessons for voice.

    I would go to different districts websites. Many have 6+1 resources listed. Try this link: http://www.pike.k12.in.us then click on 'Schools' from the districts homepage. A list of schools appears and then click on 'New August Public Academy South' From this elementary school's home page they have 6+1 ono the right hand side of the page, mid screen. There are lots of resources there too.
    I've also used teacher workbooks that have lessons on each specific trait that I got from resale bookstores.
