I love Razzle Dazzle, 6 Traits + 1 ...also Reggie Routeman's Writing Essentials, and Ralph Flectcher's Writing Crafts.
I love teaching 3rd graders to write.
The best approach (I've found) is to model the idea you're teaching by reading many books to them that have that idea...great beginnnings, endings, word choice, etc. Bring the great examples to their attention. Then have them read their books marking examples with post its and come back and share them and make charts.
They begn to use many of these ideas and then create their own.
