Product Description
Squiggles is a fun, no-prep, creative writing activity that is differentiated for many different grade levels, while still being engaging and teaching important writing standards and skills.


Squiggles is a fun and engaging creative writing activity that you will love as much as your students! Every time I use this activity, my students get so excited about it and beg to do it again and again! The nature of the lesson (using a squiggle to draw an illustration and using that as the basis of an original story) lends itself to be different every time your students do it. This allows you to use this product over and over to give your students meaningful writing practice! This product is highly differentiated and can honestly be used from lower elementary all the way up to the upper elementary grades (and maybe even sixth grade).


Perfect for a weekly writing center, an early finisher activity, a sub tub, or just as a way to spice up your writing block!
