NWREL's latest addition to the 6+1 Trait® Writing collection, Wee Can Write: Using 6+ 1 Trait® Writing Strategies With Renowned Children's Literature, shows kindergarten, primary, and upper-preschool teachers how to apply the 6+ 1 Trait® Writing model with beginning writers. Developed by kindergarten teachers in conjunction with NWREL 6+ 1 Trait® experts, this book ties the literacy needs of very young writers to instructional strategies with creative and developmentally appropriate activities, including assessment of student understanding. Divided into the four seasons of the year, these flexible lessons continuously blend connections among reading, writing, speaking, and creative artwork, supporting a thematic and integrated approach to the writing activities. Text is color coded to easily identify what is information for the teacher or instruction to be delivered by the teacher. A supply list for each lesson is also provided. Wee Can Write features: * Short instructional scripts for each story as well as each focus trait within the story * Bright cheerful easy-to-use design uses helpful color coding so that the teacher can easily determine which part of the text is meant for directions to students, which part is a list of lesson materials and/or examples * Engaging illustrations and other teaching aids for the teacher's use in conducting the trait-based lessons
