I LOVE to help out other teachers.  It’s why I write this blog everyday – to help as many teachers learn and grow so that they can have an impact on the students in their classrooms.  So today is really special for me.  It’s…..GIVEAWAY DAY!

Today, I’m giving away the book “6+1 Traits of Writing – the Primary Grades Guide”.  I have used this book for years (we have several copies in our school professional library), and so have many other teachers that I know.  It is chock-full of great tips for writing, organizing it into 7 categories for teaching:

Ideas, Sentence Fluency, Organization, Word Choice, Voice, Conventions and Presentation.

In addition, it comes with so many great ideas for using arts integration throughout the writing process.  You can truly take this book into your classroom and implement the ideas right away. For more info on the book, click here.

I love this book so much that I bought a copy and am giving it away today to one lucky winner!
