Story Creation--using skills learned about stories and writing to create their own tales.

Story Bags:  Fill a bag or a box with random objects.  Students will take the items in the "bag" and create a story beginning with "Once Upon a Time..."

Story Sticks. Yellow = character, Red = conflict, Green = setting, Blue = "Special". Choose one of each and then make up a story based on what you've picked.
