6-Trait Writing is a writing programme which focuses on the specific areas of:
- sentence structure,
- organization of written work,
- vocabulary extension and word use, and
- grammar conventions.
For Kindergarden, Grade 1 and Grade 2, the 6-Trait writing programme is done in-class two times a week. It is co-taught between the classroom teacher and a Student Services teacher.
In Grades 3, 4 and 5, 6-Trait Writing is taught to small groups of students during Foreign Language time. G3-G5 students who need some extra support with writing follow this programme instead of taking a Foreign Language.
