Inspire creativity with this spring writing center! It allows students to take familiar elements and mix them up to create unique stories they will be excited to share.

There are 64 cards included in this writing center: Setting (20), Character (24), and Problem (20). All cards are provided in color and line art. Students draw one from each set to plan their story.

This center can be used in grades 1-3, but depending on the reading ability of your students, you may choose to only use setting and character cards for first grade students. Cards can be placed in a center, chosen and taken to student desks, or displayed in a pocket chart. You can let students choose their own cards or “draw” unseen for a greater challenge.

Five different bordered writing paper options have also been provided to accommodate the needs of your class. Full-lined, partially lined page with room for drawing a picture at the top; and partially lined page that has a designated space at the top for writing or drawing each of the three story elements that were chosen for the story. This last option is helpful if they are choosing cards from just looking at them in a pocket chart instead of having the cards in front of them.

Thank you for visiting Resource Ranch! If your students enjoy writing with Draw Three, please leave a quick comment to let others know. If you have any questions, please email [email protected]
