Daily Trait Writing Evan Moor Review

Timberdoodle is a wonderful company that I am honored to be part of, I have posted 2 other reviews about books from them so far. This is my 3rd and final for a while. This review is again about Evan Moor and the book is Daily Trait Writing Grade 2 from Evan Moor. So this book was geared toward Lexi.

Lexi has issues when it comes to writing. She is still trying to learn how the proper way is. So this book was wonderful to review. It takes it day by day to learn and understand what the parts are to write. I didn’t understand what “Trait” writing was… So I went straight to the website to try to learn if this was going to be a problem this is the answer I found: “Trait-based writing is an impressive method educators have developed to determine if a child’s writing is skilled or not. The six traits or characteristics that shape quality writing are content; organization; word choice; sentence fluency; voice; and conventions, which include grammar, spelling, and mechanics. It may sound ominous, but Daily 6-Trait Writing has made it effortless.” So then I wasn’t nearly as worried I was pleased to have it all laid out for me so that it was easy yet she was still going to get a well established writing book to help me teach her the how to’s of writing.

This is how the book is laid out:
25 weeks of instruction cover the following trait-based writing skills:

Week 1: Choose a Good Topic
Week 2: Add Details
Week 3: Choose Better Details
Week 4: Stick to the Topic
Week 5: Review

Week 3: Fix Run-on and Rambling Sentences
Week 4: Combine Choppy Sentences
