with Crazy Creatures where they create their own story character!
Crazy Creatures is fun, engaging and imaginative! Your students create their creature which could be wacky, practical, futuristic, alien-like, inspired by interests, etc.
Their crazy creature then stars in their mini saga, a story told in just 100 words!
The 100-word limit removes the fear of getting something wrong, helps pique less confident or reluctant writers' interest & can be completed in one lesson.
Remember, if you'd like to go paperless, visit Online Writing Portal where your students type their work during a lesson or for homework. Please visit the link above for further info & contact us if you need an account creating for your school.
We also have the presentation that complements the lesson plan available in Google slides here!
