PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Get your students EXCITED about writing by having them create characters that will star in their stories they write all year long.

Students will use The Character Factory packets to create their own, personal character… complete with family history, physical features, and hobbies. This character will be the star in each of the stories they write throughout the year, as they explore the different kinds of writing.

Each Character Factory packet includes fun writing activities that involve their character, as well as a writing project that focuses on one specific kind of writing.

Through the activities in each packet, students will learn and implement multiple writing skills…all while having fun using their imagination and being creative!
