HASH(0xa10a8ba0) out of 5 stars Make It Easy on Yourself Oct. 23 2005
By Debra Stewart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If ever there was a book that a teacher could take off the shelf and use, this is the one. Ruth Culham has written a book that should be on every teacher's desk. The format is very easy to follow with lots of GREAT ideas that can be used immediately with your students. Not only is it the perfect writing guide for primary teachers, it gives a scaffolding for intermediate teachers to understand how primary students come to be writers.

HASH(0xa10a8bf4) out of 5 stars 6 + 1 = 7 April 12 2006
By Book Obsessed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm sorry, but 6+1 equals 7. Just kidding- I understand why she called her book that. This is the best writing book I have come across for primary grades. Easy to use lesson plans, examples of student work, and book title suggestions all make this the perfect writing resource. If you want to purchase the titles referenced in the book, there is a website that I found that sells them in a set, plus a lot of other stuff: [...] Check them out!

HASH(0xa0c75048) out of 5 stars Primary Teachers Rejoice! Jan. 3 2007
By Shelli Treely - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
We asked. We pleaded. We begged, "Pretty pleeease." Ruth Culham responded to our request with great enthusiasm with 6+1 Traits of Writing: The Complete Guide for the Primary Grades. And teachers across the globe cheered, "Wahoo!" Finally, a resource book for primary educators who have been searching for child tested ideas that tackle instructional strategies and assessment techniques in one comprehensive book. Thank you, Ruth, for doing a wonderful job of explaining each trait, equipping us with developmentally appropriate focus lessons, and reminding us that teaching writing to young authors is a process in which they need plenty of practice and opportunities, and an extra helping of patience on our part doesn't hurt. This must have book for all teachers - novice and experienced alike - won't be another resource that is shelved after a quick glance. It will be close at hand as it is used throughout the year to help develop the talents of young writers.

By C, - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I agree with the positive reviews. The concepts and lessons are great. However, this book must be "all the rage" because when I went online to purchase the trade book from the first lesson plan, I could not find it for less than $50! Of course, you can substitute in your own book selections, but if you want to rely on the lessons as written you MAY not be able to find every book. [...]

HASH(0xa0c754ec) out of 5 stars The Magic Yellow Book for Writing Oct. 24 2005
By Libby Jachles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Ruth Culham masterfully unlocks the magic of writing for teachers and students alike. She's created an invaluable resource for primary teachers to use in guiding children as they begin the journey of learning to write. Included are suggestions on what to say to young writers, teaching ideas, examples of student work, scoring guides to assess primary students' writing and much, much more! Ruth's book will touch your heart and leave you excited about writing. Voice in non-fiction? You bet! Anything's possible, once you know the traits."
