PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

There are 30 different Shape Stories pages in this packet. Students are to use the given shape as a starting point, then incorporate it into a creative, illustrated scene! Students then write a description or short story based on their illustration. Voila! You have an EASY, NO-PREP creative writing activity that students love! This concept is similar to “squiggle” stories, but uses shapes instead.

How To Use:
1. Choose a Shape Story template.
2. Start by tracing the given shape(s), then continue to transform
the drawing space into a creative picture.
3. Give your drawing a title.
4. Write about your drawing on the lines provided.
5. Share with the class!

When To Use:
This packet is great to use in writing centers, as morning work or as a quick-write, homework, early finisher work, leave for a substitute teacher, or any way you see fit! It's neat to see how each student will come up with a different drawing based on the same shape!

What's Included:
•30 different Shape Story pages.
•Shapes include—triangle, square, circle, star, oval, rectangle, diamond/rhombus, pentagon, hexagon, octagon, parallelogram, heart, cube, trapezoid, and arrow.
•Each shape is featured on two pages—one shape on the first, and a double shape on the second.
