Product Description
Celebrate Valentine's Day with this engaging communal story-telling activity!

This product features a communal story-telling activity in which students practice using Freytag's Pyramid plot structure in their own narrative writing. In this activity, each student begins a story inspired by a unique Valentine's Day-inspired photograph. They are prompted to write the exposition of the tale by introducing the setting and main characters. After the allotted amount of time, the story is then passed to another student who is prompted to write the inciting incident or conflict and begin to detail the rising action. The paper is passed from student to student twice more until the story is resolved. When the stories are finished, the worksheet is returned to the original student who can then make edits and is responsible for producing a final draft.

With this intrinsically engaging activity, each student has the chance to tap into their creativity while applying knowledge of the 7 steps of Freytag's Pyramid. It is a great activity to introduce or reinforce the plot diagram and is perfect for a Friday, a substitute plan, or simply for when students need a creative break without sacrificing learning and hard work. While ideal for Valentine's Day, it can be used at any time of the year!

Product Includes:

- 31 unique "Collaborative Story Time" worksheets with Valentine's Day-themed photographs (2-sided)
- 1 blank worksheet so that you may include your own picture or photograph
