This Back-To-School Squiggle Story packet is a fun creative writing activity that is low-stress for students, yet allows the teacher to get an early assessment of each student's writing at the beginning of the year.
Students are to use the given “squiggle” line and school-themed image to incorporate into a creative, illustrated drawing! Students then write a description or short story based on their illustration. Voila! You have an EASY, NO-PREP creative writing activity that students love...and will get everyone in the Back-To-School spirit!
There are 15 different Back-To-School Squiggle Story pages included, plus an extra blank writing page for students who want to write longer stories.
How To Use:
1. Choose a school-themed Squiggle Story template.
2. Start with the given squiggle line, then continue to transform
the drawing space into a creative picture.
3. Give your drawing a title.
4. Write about your Back-To-School scene on the lines provided.
5. Share with the class!
When To Use:
The school-theme makes this great for Back-To-School, but it could be used ALL year round in writing centers, as morning work, homework, early finisher work, as a sub plan, or any way you see fit! It's neat to see how each student will come up with a different drawing based on the same squiggle!
