Did you have the Smekens training? They recommend taking either 6 or 12 days(one day per trait or 2....I'm doing 2!) and introduce each trait briefly maybe with a read aloud and then the song?

I'm combining that with No More I'm Done's suggestion of a 10 minute quiet write with music. Everyone dates their work and writes! We did that today for the first time and they loved it....haven't looked at the writing yet, but it isn't necessary to do a rubric or have any expectations at all...simply an introduction.
