Write Shop / Story Builders

Earlier this year, I signed up for an e-newsletter from Write Shop and a few days ago, they sent all their e-newsletter subscribers a free mini-story builder. I received this one , with a link to a discount for friends, if you are interested. You might want to sign up for their newsletter.
Here's Write Shop's description of a Story Builder from their own blog:

"StoryBuilders are printable card decks that arm your kids with the basic elements of a story—character, character trait, setting, and plot. For children of all ages, these fun writing prompts provide students with all the elements they need to create realistic stories or funny, far-fetched tales."

The Story Builder that I downloaded from that newsletter contains some ideas for ways to use the cards in different ways/games and ideas for just one student or for several at once. For a child with language processing concerns or one who needs some support to move away from memorized scripts toward new stories, new creations, these Story Builders appear to be a great tool!

Hope this helps someone,


FYI: This is not part of the TOS Homeschool Crew review YET. I learned after I wrote the post that the Crew will review two full-size Story Builders from Write Shop. Please stay tuned!
