This Write a Fall Story Writing Center has been updated to include a Google Slides™ version to use with distance learning, an instructional slide show, and additional word lists. This Fall writing activity will motivate even your most reluctant writers. It provides CHOICE and includes the TOOLS and GRAPHIC ORGANIZERS necessary to plan and write great fall stories. I wrote this unit for primary students, but it can be used with students in grades 1-5.

Kids love writing stories about the fall – trips to the pumpkin patch or apple orchard, hayrides, football games, changing leaves, and walks in the woods are just a few of the story plots included in this product.

Students can select the plot, setting, and characters for their story which allows each student to create their own unique fall story. No more having each student respond to the exact same writing prompt!


Students often struggle with writing because they are told to just “start writing.” The graphic organizers included allow the students to think about their stories and plan before they actually begin writing. There is also a writing checklist so students can make sure they have all the necessary elements in their story before they submit the final product.

TIP: Do not put out all the cards at any one time in the center. Too much choice is overwhelming, especially for younger students. There are enough cards so you can put out a few each week. I would select 6-8 problem cards at any one time to put out.


  • A poster about the elements of a Fall Story
  • 18 Setting, 40 Character, 44 Problem/Plot Cards, and 44 Item Cards
  • Charts for Transition Words, Vivid Verbs, Sensory Words, Emotions, Character Traits, and Fall Words
  • Graphic Organizers include: the Setting, Characters, Story Map, Story Summary, and Sensory Words
  • Checklist for your story
  • Fall Story Rubric
  • themed papers for students to write stories in two styles and both color and b/w
