Create your own story by randomly choosing different task cards. Each bag will have a variety of options for you to choose from. The twist is you cannot see your choices until you’ve selected them from the bag! The “WILD” bag is a twist that you MUST include in your story. Be creative, be silly, write fiction, be the author, be the creator!
There are 6 bags labeled: who, what, when, where, why, wild. Each bag has 16 task cards and they give you an interesting way to create a creative writing piece. EX: a "who" card you could select is: "A crying cloud," that character now HAS to be in your story! The students will select cards from each bag at random, record their cards and then create their piece! The best part is each story has to have a "twist," which is the "wild" card!
