Are your students excited about scary stories? Are you trying to get your class in the fall spirit? Do your kids just need something different and engaging to inspire their writing? This “scoot”-style writing activity allows kids to flip a coin at each card to determine the components of their stories.
Cut out the cards, place them around the room with pennies or counters by each one. Each student records the results of each coin toss on the response sheet. From there, they can create the rough draft on papers of their choice. For the final copy, they can use the included papers.
Additionally, students can complete the pet monster activities that follow the flip-a-story. Students can record their responses to the four cards on their response sheet. Enjoy! Happy fall!
