Printable Writing Activity for Grades 3-8
Spin-a-Story printable spinners help jumpstart a creative writing project by providing children with the basic elements of a story—character, setting, and plot. A spin of the pointer determines the story elements and sets a foundation for a fun and creative writing experience.
Break up your routine or add punch and variety to writing lessons with Spin-a-Story. Use these fun writing prompts in addition to—or instead of—a daily writing assignment.
This digital download includes 4 spinners (in color and grayscale):
- Exciting Adventures! Spinner
- Animal Adventures Spinner
- Fantasy & Fairy Tales Spinner
- Historical Adventures Spinner
There are so many possibilities!
Spin three times to find out your CHARACTER, SETTING, and a SITUATION. Once you have your three elements, it’s up to you to create the whole story! Here’s an example from the “Animal Adventures” spinner:
1st spin for CHARACTER: a jungle animal
2nd spin for SETTING: in an abandoned building
3rd spin for PLOT: hears a cry for help
Imagine the fun your kids will have! Construct your spinners and take them on the road for storytelling inspiration! Or use them for your next homeschool lesson.
