These 8 comic strip mini-stories featuring animals are for students to develop their narrative creative writing skills (CCRA.W.3), especially dialogue writing (W.4.3b, for example).
The strips have blank speech and thought bubbles for students to write in. Students can also draw/color/design their own settings and other details.

Ideas for use:
Give students a set of vocabulary or spelling words they must use.
Assign a character trait and have students make a character demonstrate that trait.
After students finish comic strips, have them re-write the dialogue in paragraph form with appropriate punctuation (quotations marks, commas). Example: The gorilla wondered, "If I was a different animal, what could I be?"
Choose a theme (moral of the story, life lesson) and have students create a comic strip modeling that theme.
Just for fun:
Inside recess, early finishers, etc.
