Wee Can Write II

Here is another practical resource for teaching grades K-4 students the 6+1 Traits of effective writing-this time by using nonfiction books. Wee Can Write II is organized around 36 award-winning titles that are easily found in the classroom, school library, or public library. Titles are categorized into five areas : The Arts, Biography, Language Arts, Science and Math, and Social Studies. Lessons are provided for each book title based on the six original traits-ideas, organization, voice, word choice, sentence fluency, and conventions. Also included are activities that encourage and support the introduction of presentation-the unique "+1" trait of the Education Northwest 6+1 Trait Writing model. A sample of books across the content areas that are featured in Wee Can Write II: More Than Meets the Eye: Seeing Art With All Five Senses , Counting on Frank , A is for America, The Boy on Fairfield Street , Waiting for Wings
