FREE! Your students will love this fun and engaging creative writing activity that will have them rolling story element dice (setting, character, obstacle, and a story starter) to create a random set of story components. Once students have their story components, they’ll plan and write a spooky story as they combine each element into an entertaining writing piece.
Write a story about this picture. Or use as a cause & effect prompt-- half the class writes a paragraph about about what caused this and the other half writes a paragraph or two about what the effects of this picture are. Then randomly match one of each together and read out loud. Kids love it!
