Get 13 quick-and-easy writing prompts for each of the 5 short stories in this download. When students finish a set of 13 short writing prompts, they complete a 16-page mini-book. These 5 DIY stories are about the adventures of Drifty the dragon. Though all students start with the same story, when they finish a set of writing prompts, they have a mini-book that is uniquely their own.
The DIY Stories in this download are:
• Drifty’s Fire-Breathing Birthday
• Drifty’s Dragon School Mishap
• Drifty’s Ungrateful ‘Tude
• Drifty’s Christmas Surprise
• Drifty’s New Year Resolution
How do these WRITING prompts work? The first page of each book starts a story. On most successive pages, students are given an opening sentence and an ending sentence. They get to use their CREATIVITY to figure out what comes between the two ideas presented, which helps them better understand story SEQUENCING.
With a handy Brainstorm sheet, students work to include all five of their senses and at least one form of FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE. By the time students finish writing the last page of their book, they have a story that is uniquely their own.
