Story Stones are a prompt used to create and inspire stories! They provide endless possibilities for writing and storytelling and can be used in different ways.

1. Writing: Story stones can be placed in the writing center to help students remember small moments for narrative writing, discover topics for informational writing, form opinions by comparing stones for opinion writing, and dream up fun situations for creative writing. Story stones inspire more detail in student writing and offer an engaging and hands-on way to learn event sequencing.

2. Storytelling: Story stones are a fun way to introduce storytelling to children. This is an important skill that encourages creativity, helps sharpen memory, and improves communication and listening skills in young children. This can be done as an independent activity or with the whole class! All you need to do is gather students and have them sit in a circle. Pass around a basket filled with story stones and each child takes one to inspire a new line in the story. Children love this activity and it helps build classroom community! The smooth surface of the stone will calm any anxious storyteller.

Story Stones can be used during a camping trip, after a family hike, or in the classroom! This set goes perfectly with the Camping Theme.

What’s Included?:
50 Colorful Graphics to cut out and Mod Podge onto stones.
7 Writing Prompts to help spark the writing process.
2 Story Mats to help sequence events and organize writing.
