Do you often wonder how to help those reluctant writers get started? How to spark their imagination and help guide their writing?
Introducing the "Creative Writing Prompt Game!"
This simple yet effective game can spark any students' imagination, and can be easily adapted to suit any style of writing or topic being studied.
All you need are some dice, writing paper and pens, and the Creative Writing Topic Card of your choice, and away you go!
Follow the instructions to help allocate 6 prompts for each student to get them started on their writing piece. You can make the prompt categories and choices as specific or complicated as you like - or just start by using one of the 15 different Topic Cards included in this pack!
Every time I have used this activity in the classroom it has been a hit - from creating our own superheroes, to writing Ancient Egyptian Creation stories. Students of all abilities love this activity - the gifted writers take their prompts and run with them, and the students that are slow to begin can always start by drawing their character or scenes first to help become inspired.
