Fill the bags with random items, have the children use them to come up with a story. It would be a great writing center activity, and you can so easily differentiate based on what items you chose. Love this idea!
love this for primary writing-- could adapt according to writing expectations in your own classroom (what do authors do? have words, have illustrations, words and pictures match, fearlessly spell, use punctuation, have spaces between words...)
Emily Stewart, this is a super easy/cute way to work on story elements using (my favorite!) Post-It notes! You can take the Post-Its down and re-use the chart for a new story! Sure beats using boring chart paper!
