Creative writing tasks can be difficult for many children. This Roll A Story writing center will make writing fun and help develop strong oral and written storytelling skills in your classroom!
Similar to our Tell Me A Story Pack, this writing center is designed with early writers in mind. Ten different 'Roll Me A Story' mats are included with visual prompts for selecting characters, settings and events. Children simply need to role the dice to begin telling their story.
Use this center to build rich oral storytelling or combine their use with our helpful templates and writing sheets to capture their narratives as they begin writing.
Instructions for use have also been provided along with time cards (today/yesterday/on the weekend) to help improve the complexity of their writing.
Here's what's included -
- 10 different 'Tell Me A Story' mats - 1 per A4 page (UK/Aust + USA spelling included)
- 'How To Use' instruction cards - 2 per A4 page
- 2 different writing templates - 1 per A4 page
- 30 different time (when?) cards - 15 per A4 page
