I don’t know what to write about? Have you heard this before? I’m pretty confident that every teacher has heard this at some point!
When students need something to write about, they chose one character, one setting, and one event.
Harry Potter on the playground baking a cake.
Llama in the treehouse watching a movie
Ramona at a friends house getting embarrassed.
Use historical figures as characters. Ex: George Washington at the beach eating an ice cream cone.
Use the world’s biomes as the setting. Ex: Grandma visits the aquatic biome to prepare for a marathon.
Use historial events as the event. Ex: Wilbur at the farm watching the civil war.
Have students create their own 4-6-8 mini poster to refer back to when they are stumped.
Really, the possibilities are endless and the stories that are created are FUN to read!
