This is a writing center that allows the students to use their imagination! The "2" of Pick 2 = CHARACTER and SETTING.
Print the pictures off on regular white paper or card stock. Cut out each picture and choose two colors of construction paper or other colored paper. Glue each character picture to one color and glue each setting picture to the other color. (Example: All the character pictures are on purple and all the setting pictures are on orange.) Laminate the pictures for durability. Place the pictures in two separate containers.
Students will pick one picture from each container (I tell my students to close their eyes when they pick). Using those two pictures the students write a story and draw a picture!
Here are some fun examples of what you might see:
*Santa Claus in the jungle
*A deer at McDonald's
*A dragon under the sea
*An astronaut at the zoo
*A king in the laundry room
