Spinning a story
, is a quick, easy and fun way to spice up
your writing block
or Daily 5
They're easy-peasy for you, as you don't have to constantly think up seasonal writing prompts, and highly motivational,
as this is that "something creative & different" that grabs students' attention
They will not only be excited
to get down to the business of writing, but I've found that their imaginations
kick into high gear, creating some really awesome work
So that you can use them every year, simply print, laminate, trim and attach a paperclip
with a brass brad.
Children choose one, or several, of the 14-winter story wheels
, then spin 3 to 5 times.
those items into a short story
on the worksheet
For more writing practice, I've included a "Spin a sentence"
worksheet, as well as one where students spin 7 times, give those pictures a one-word name/description and then alphabetize
those words on the worksheet
I'm Diane from Teach With Me, hoping that your kiddos, enjoy story wheels as much as mine have.
Watch for the other "Spin a Story Wheels" coming for Spring, Summer & Fall.
