Your students will love this quick and fun creative writing activity! It's such an easy way to get students excited about writing. First they look at the squiggle line provided, then use their imagination to turn that squiggle into a picture. They can color it and add details to make it look nice. Then they can use their picture to write a short story. It's fun to see how each student transforms the squiggle into something different!

This pack includes 4 different squiggle designs plus 1 blank template. I have provided both a younger grades version with writing lines and an upper grades version with plain lines. (10 pages total.) Use the squiggle lines provided, or draw your own squiggle on the template before you makes copies, or let students draw their own squiggles. Either way, they will have a fun time doing this writing activity.

This is great to have on hand for substitutes (perfect for emergency sub plans!), to use as fast finishers, or add it as an option for your writer's workshop.

Thanks for checking out this product! Hope you enjoy!
