Would be great for sequencing or planning a writing piece. I can see my lower functioning students drawing a picture for each, or cutting/pasting pictures or phrases while higher functioning students write sentences.
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!
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!
