Want a wonderful way to kickstart your student's creative writing? Well, try using Tell-A-Tale along with the Tell Tale card game you can purchase online or use your own cut-out clipart. Have the students randomly select 3 cards or just let them choose three cards to their liking to help create an interesting story. After selecting the three cards, they can draw the cards selected in the picture circles to the best of their ability. Then, remind them to give their story a title, beginning, middle and end. I found it very useful for the teacher to model their very own story using the cards. The wackier the story, the more engaged and excited the students become creating their own story.
