These prompts can be used to help spark students’ creative writing skills. You can adjust the expectations for the stories based on the Common Core expectations for narrative writing at your grade level.
I make several copies of the sheets, then cut the cards apart and put them in a witch’s cauldron or plastic jack-o-lantern. Each student draws out one of the cards and that becomes the main subject of the story they write. They draw a quick picture on their card, and then they’re off and writing!
