Teachers and parents, students can read literary and informational paired text and write a well-written essay that references the text they’ve read. An added plus are the 6 Traits of Writing posters or if your student or child needs easy access, the Six Traits of Writing Expandable Bookmarks are at their finger-tips.
This resource includes:
- 3 sets of paired text (literary and informational)
- 9 writing prompts: narrative, expository, and argument

This product is Common Core aligned and focuses on reading and writing activities for grades 4 – 6.
