Welcome to the 6 +1 Writing Traits Lesson Plan and Book List page.  Below you will find books that correspond to one of the writing traits discussed at the 6 + 1 Writing Traits book pass.  These are all books that are owned by one or more of the Chittenango elementary libraries or reading departments.  As teachers develop lesson plans to go with these books it is our hope to warehouse those lesson plans here for sharing between schools and grade levels.  Please let either Jessamyn Cantrell or Jackie Alex know if any other information would be useful on this page.  Enjoy!
