PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Put these 80 character and setting cards in your Writing Center and your young writers will always have a place to go for story ideas! By choosing one card from each container, writers will have the beginnings of a funny or unusual situation, which they can then develop into a longer piece of writing. This resource consists of 40 captioned Character Cards, 40 captioned Setting Cards, and 2 storage container labels.

Thank you for your interest in this set! Please see more of my materials for primary literacy and math at my blog at

My students did a great job with using these picture cards. I had them use describing words about their setting or character and then had the class have to guess who/where they were.
Super!
