A great literary text review activity! This activity is dependent on the students to roll a die which assigns them a genre. Based on the genre type that they rolled, the students use their creative magic to write the basic outline of a story. With the use of dice, each activity is unique so it's great for sharing and reusing time and time again.
This can even be a great activity for a sub plan. If you don't trust the kids with dice when a sub is in, just have the sub roll the dice for them!
