Product Description
An activity inspired by Ray Bradbury's "Zen in the Art of Writing." Overcome Writer's Block, Inspire Ideas and Cultivate Student Creativity!

Cut the following phrases and words into slips. Fold the slips, and have students select them at random. Instruct students to use the word or phrase as a title or as inspiration to write a short piece. It can be in any style they wish – poem, narrative, dialogue, etc.

Teacher’s Tip: I like to allow students a time limit, and offer them the opportunity to share their piece with the class once time is up! I’ve also had students work on this activity in pairs as a “speed-write” activity, and then have them circulate the room and share their work with other partners. This is a great opportunity for collaboration, and a low-risk activity for English Language Learners!
