This Back to School Writing Prompt resource will get your students writing creative and wacky stories of what students could encounter when they head back to school! With over 7770 unique possible combinations, you could use this year after year and never get tired of the outcomes! Students roll a dice to decide the location of the story, the scenario, an extra character, a surprise twist and a specific school-related item they must include in the narrative with this handy Roll-A writing prompt resource. Instead of getting students to write you a letter or sitting them down for a spelling test, let them go a little crazy, writing something awesomely creative – and then sneakily get them practising their sentence writing and spelling anyway! The stories your students write will be rich with imagination, for sure!
