Product Description
Do your students have a difficult time starting a story? Does the sight of a blank page make them freeze up? Perhaps they have too many ideas swirling around in their head and they don't know where to start. Perhaps they have very few ideas and an unclear vision for a story.

TRY A STORY MATRIX!

A story matrix is a story elements generator that gives students story elements to include in their narrative writing with a roll of a dice! Matrices help give students direction, while also forcing creativity by oftentimes juxtaposing two (or three, or four) elements that may not seem to go together at first glance!

I use these frequently in my gifted and talented class, but these are absolutely appropriate for a general education classroom as well!
