Six Traits: Conventions


Start small with your editor's checklist and add to it as the year progresses. Be sure your editor's checklist doesn't get too long. Consider consolidating capitalization, punctuation and spelling. I've seen the mnemonic device: CUPS (capitalization, verb usage, punctuation, spelling) in many classrooms.

Cheryl,

I LOVE your blog! I am taking a six trait course now and your blog has further inspired me to get this started in my 3rd grade classroom next year!

Thanks so much!

Melanie
