This activity is a fun way to get your students writing creatively. This can be used as a bell ringer or exit ticket, as well as a longer activity. It can be whole class, small group, or individually assigned. It all depends on you!
Students (or you) choose one card from each of the four categories: setting, character, plot and and an item. They then weave a tale around they three cards they chose.
It can be as long or as short as you choose.
Included are more detailed instructions as well as the reproducible cards. The cards will need to be cut apart before use.
