This Christmas themed writing activity makes a great literacy center that will get even reluctant writers excited! Encourage students to use their imagination by drawing character, setting, and problem card combinations to use in their writing.
There are 64 cards included in this writing center: Setting (20), Character (24), and Problem (20). ALL cards are provided in color and line art.
Depending on the reading ability of your students, you may choose to use only the character and setting cards for Kinder or First Grade, but this center works well using all cards for 2nd- 4th.
Cards can be placed in a center, chosen and taken to student desk, or displayed in a pocket chart. Students can choose one card from each set to use in writing a creative story or can draw cards without looking for a little more challenge and fun!
Four different bordered writing paper options have also been provided to accommodate the needs of your class. Two full-lined pages, one partially lined page with room for drawing a picture at the top; and one partially lined page that has a space at the top for writing or drawing each of the three story elements that were chosen for the story. (This last option is helpful if they are choosing cards from just looking at them in a pocket chart.)
