PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Introductory PowerPoint covering the elements of a short story plus silly story starters for creative writing in a "Roll-a-Story" format. These four "Roll-a-Story" cards allow for 864 different story combinations! Students first roll a die to select a character, then roll to select a setting and one more roll to select the conflict. Then let the creative writing fun begin.

I suggest laminating the "Roll-a-Story" cards. Students only need to use a card briefly, for three rolls of the die. Then they can pass the card to another student. This format also works great for use in a writing center.

This resource includes:

★ An introduction to the 5 elements of a short story PowerPoint
★ Guided Notes - Elements of a short story
★ Four Roll-a-Story cards
★ Planning Sheet
★ Creative writing stationery (2 pages)
★ Dice

Please take a look at the FREE preview above to see this resource in more detail.

This is a zipped file which includes the PowerPoint plus a PDF file.
