PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Writing Center: Creative Writing Prompts and Story Starters
Does your writing center need some fresh ideas? Here are three fun writing center activities your students will love!
Center 1: Pick 5
In this center, students pick 5 word cards and use those 5 words to create a story. This is an easy way to get students to use new words in their writing! A colorful poster with directions for the activity is included for posting at the writing center. Also included is a prewriting planning worksheet.
Center 2: Parts of a Story
This center activity is more structured. Students choose one card from 5 different categories: Characters, setting, story item, and personality trait. A poster with directions and a planning worksheet are included for this center.
Center 3: What If?
This center activity contains 24 “What If…” writing prompts. Students choose a prompt and write about a day in which this “what if” scenario really happened.
This writing center activity addresses the common core writing standard for
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.3.3, 4.3 & 5.3 Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, descriptive details, and clear event sequences.
