Hi,

I have had the training for step up to writing, but I am having a very, very hard time implementing it in first grade. We are also supposed to be using 6 traits. I am not a new teacher by any means but I sure feel like one!

It also helps them get organized so that they are able to stay on topic when they write.

An easy way to remember Step Up to Writing is like a traffic light. there are green, yellow, and red sentences (in 1st grade we only use green and yellow). Here are some helpful tips:

The first sentence is always a green "Go" sentence. This is their topic sentence and will frame the rest of their writing. (example: I like cats.)

Next, they will need to think of a detail, fact, or reason that supports their 1st sentence. This is their "yellow" sentence because they are slowing down to tell you more. (example: Cats can climb.) Students can have several yellow sentences to support their green sentence.

Your child will learn about red sentences in 2nd grade (red means "stop" and tell me more about your detail, fact, or reason...example: Sometimes cats like to climb on a fence.
