Five Question Story Writing is a pack of 20 story ideas with an action cartoon as the point of inspiration. Each activity comes with an accompanying set of 5 questions that, when combined with the featured cartoon, will assist students in constructing a story plot. An organizing page and lined pages for writing the final draft are included.
These activities challenged students to (1) create and solve a simple story problem, (2) structure the story with a beginning, middle, and end, (3) show cause and effect, (4) include sequencing words, and (5) use forceful verbs.
A grading rubric that addresses these elements is included.
This product is designed for 4th-6th graders who like to write stories but struggle for inspiration. Some 7th and 8th grade aspiring authors will also enjoy using this material.
