What educators are saying

Loved that this resource breathed some new life into developing story ideas/writing prompts. THANK YOU!


My students love their Roll-a-Story boards! And, anytime I can get them excited about writing, I'm a happy teacher. ;) These boards are easy to prepare and they are printer friendly, too!

To use, students simply roll a die and match the number they rolled to their board to get a story prompt. Each prompt includes a character, a setting, and a problem. Students will elaborate on these ideas in their writing. The prompt is designed to help students get creative without giving away too many details.

These boards are perfect for use as a fast finisher activity, in a writing center, or as part of your writing block/Writer's Workshop.

The following is included in this pack:
*Contents/explanation of how I use these boards in my classroom
*10 themed Roll-a-Story boards
*10 "generic" or anytime Roll-a-Story boards
*Writing paper (two versions are included: handwriting lines and regular lines)
*1 bonus board (designed to be used in place of the December Christmas themed board; this board features winter themed prompts without any reference to the holiday)

Be sure to check out the preview file!
