Terrific Tales: Thrilling Word Bank Story Prompts (Printable)

What do a café in Paris, the Amazon jungle, an undersea laboratory, and a black hole in outer space have in common? They’re among the 33 exciting settings that will launch kids into a world of imaginative story writing! 

These word bank story prompts maybe just what you need to encourage more creative writing. With engaging elements such as exotic settings, surprise plot twists, and fun story details, each unique printable writing prompt page will motivate even the most reluctant writer!

Terrific Tales gives children opportunities to

  • Use their imaginations to create fictional stories
  • Plan a story’s elements based on a set of 10 thematic story prompts
  • Express themselves both verbally and in writing
  • Practice writing stories that have a beginning, middle, and end
  • Incorporate character qualities and emotions into their stories
  • Describe a story’s setting

Even when your children’s stories begin with the same 10 elements, no two turn out alike!Whether the setting is a café in Paris, the Amazon jungle, an undersea laboratory, or a black hole in outer space, any story can spill over with humor, adventure, mystery, or fantasy. By deciding what role each element plays, each child determines the direction his or her narrative will take.
