PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Getting your students to write can’t get any simpler than this! Simply provide students with a vacation themed spinner and hand out paperclips. Students use their pencil and the paperclip to spin three times. The first spin gives them a character, the second gives them a setting, and the third will gives them a plot element to use in their story. Your students then use their creative license to write a fun story!

For example: a lifeguard (spin 1), at a beach (2), where someone wins their dream vacation (3). Might turn into a story about a lifeguard who saves a rich business owner and is given his dream vacation as thanks.

There is a worksheet provided for students to write their stories, or you can choose to have students write their stories in their journals.

If you would like students to have their own personal spinner, a fun extension is to have them color a space once they have spun it. When creating future prompts, if they hit a colored space, they must re-spin. This process continues until the spinner is fully colored in, and eight stories have been written!
