ADD COLOR AND HUMOR TO YOUR WRITING CENTER WITH THESE CARD DECKS. Too often students give blank stares when asked to write a narrative. These colorful, humorous cards make creative writing fun, even for reluctant writers. Students draw Character, Setting, and Problem cards and then weave the elements into their stories. The variety of combinations is almost limitless. Cards include cartoons by Ron Leishman's Digital Toonage.
You won't run out of ideas with the following:
104 character cards
104 setting cards
104 problem cards
Writing stationery for both full sheets and interactive notebooks
The process of weaving the three prompts together leads to unique and fun stories.
How I Use These Decks of Cards
The variety is endless! Students have fun weaving the three prompts together in their stories.
I keep each set of cards in a separate matching plastic cup. That way students know where the cards go after they’ve copied the character, setting, and problem onto a writing sheet (provided).
At times when we need a class prompt for a quick write, I have one student pull a character, one pull a setting, and one pull the problem. After we finish writing (including me), we share our stories. It’s fun to compare our stories!
Near our writing center, I have a separate creative writing board where students can post their stories by fastening them along a fishing line with a clothespin.
