Activity Overview


“I don’t know what to write!” is a very common occurrence in the classroom. When writing fiction, some kids need a very solid start already given to them. Some kids will take whatever topic or prompt you give them and turn it into a masterpiece that you never expected! Use Storyboard That to get students thinking about stories. Give them a prompt to work with, or start a storyboard for them to finish. The prompt for this example is, “Lucy was alone in the woods…"

Depending on the level of your students, you may want to enforce the narrative arc, or you may just want the story to make sense sequentially. This particular activity is good for expanding “quick write” ideas, or boiling down a story idea to its major points. It is also good to get stuck students started. Present several finished stories to see the different directions students took!
