This is a neat little activity where your students being to story writing, and is also a beginning to paragraph writing. It is also particularly useful in a pinch, as there is no prep required. As well, the instructions are easy to understand.
There are two components to this activity. First is the writing piece and the second is the drawing portion where students draw what they have written about. I have found that having a drawing element has always helped motivate students with their writing.
I have two default topics already on this activity, but please feel free to edit the topics for new ones and activity sheet itself.
Hope you enjoy it
