This is a great literacy center activity for work on writing.
1 Printable with 10 Character and 10 Setting cut outs
1 Character label (for character sticks)
1 Setting label (for setting sticks)
1 Printable Story Writing Worksheet
Cut out, laminate, and paste onto Popsicle sticks. Place the character sticks into a cup, and the setting sticks into a separate cup. Label the cups using the labels included
Students will select a character & a setting to begin their story writing process. They can choose to do a story where the character and setting match (mermaid & ocean), or a silly story (pirate in outer space) if you so choose to let them.
This also familiarizes them with the elements of a story to help them in reading.
