Whether you're looking for activities to complement your own writing lesson, or a fun, easy-to-follow lesson to leave with a substitute, this packet is perfect for you!
Looking for something short and simple? Use only the “Creating Your Own Character” page, and then have students show what they created with the “Writing a Monologue!” page.
Looking for something longer and more challenging? Make several copies of the “Create Your Own Character” page and use the “Writing a Short Story!” page to have students create multiple unique characters and a detailed story to show them off!
Looking for something in between? This versatile packet can be mixed and matched for use in a wide range of grades and classrooms, and is perfect for use as an emergency sub plan.
It's all in what you choose to build with it!
