Product Description
Its that merry time of year! These printable, narrative writing activities are based on my best selling Build A Story Writing Packet. Developing an imaginative story from a prompt can be a challenge for many young writers. This packet is designed to assist with the development of a character and put it into a setting with a problem. They are then challenged to create their own solution to the problem. Thus a story is born! 
With the fun theme of Christmas, the children are able to focus on the skills of developing a protagonist, antagonist, setting and resolution/conclusion. There is also a game which requires the children to write their own cause for stated effects, thus practicing the skill of identifying and creating conflict and solution. This is both a game and an engaging learning activity in one thematic packet!

There are 28 story building cards for matching, picking and choosing, however you wish to play with your class. I like to copy and laminate the cards so that the kids can write directly on the cards with dry erase felt markers over and over again.

I have used this activity with 3rd and 5th grade writing groups and as literacy centers activities. They align with the CCSS ELA standards.
Please feel free to let me know your thoughts on this product so that I may constantly be improving my work for you.

Happy, Happy Holidays!!
