    Depends a bit on grade level

    I like to begin the year with a kickoff of Six Traits. We review them all week---not in depth---but touch on each one. We begin to use the language and then we have a Six Trait SUndae Kickoff party. After that, it's a part of our daily language....everything we read we mention traits. We also do mini lessons on traits--some we publish and some we just put away for later. I teach third grade so maybe people do it differently at the younger grades. Ruth Culham does not advise that traits be split up by grade level though---you need to be talking about them all----all year IMO.
