PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Squiggle Stories! Creative Writing Activities for Kindergarten, first, and second!

Squiggle Stories promote creative thinking and a range of important writing skills. Open-ended and fun, Squiggle Stories will help to motivate and engage even your most reluctant writers!

Here’s how they work: Using their imagination, students turn the squiggle on each page into a detailed picture. Students then write about their illustration, using words to clarify and enrich their illustration.

Squiggle Stories are appropriate for students of ALL ability levels because they are inherently differentiated! This open-ended task provides multiple entry points for students. Students can participate where they are, reflecting their individual strengths and skills. Squiggle Stories also give students ample room to grow; there is no ceiling or limit to what students can author and create!
