Our school is looking to implement 6 Traits next year and I want to get a head start on it. Currently, I use 4 Blocks in my classroom and use the mini-lessons from that to teach my writing. I am unsure of which of the 6 traits I teach 1st? Do I need to know more information about it before I can begin? I have just found a few sites on the Internet to look at, but have no book and there is no training we can go to this year that is out of state (Iowa). If you have any suggestions on where to begin, I would greatly appreciate it!
