Writing is taught starting at the very beginning of kindergarten where the students are encouraged to write their very first stories. In working with the students, the teachers focus on the development of good ideas, organization, voice, word choice, sentence fluency, conventions and presentation known as the 6+1 Trait model. The consistent use of terminology such as having a strong “grabber” and “zinger” starting as young as kindergarten, helps to develop our students into strong writers.
