WriteShop Story Builders

We’re into our 4th month of school this year, and we’re still loving the WriteShop Primary! Although I’ve only been doing it a couple times a week, our kids are doing quite well. One thing that has really helped us with our writing, is our WriteShop Story Builders!writeshop_storybuilders2


They’ve been a HUGE help on days when they kids just can’t come up with an idea to write about. I printed them all off and put them in a little 3×5 recipe type box. I let them just grab in and pull out a card so it’s a surprise! If they really don’t like the card they pick, I let them grab another one, it’s really not a big deal, and they always find something fun to write about using the Story Builders!




What types of cards do they offer?

Now is a great time for the Christmas Mini-Builder cards, so if you’re kids are having a hard time thinking of things to write about, I encourage you to try the WriteShop Story Builders!

And if you haven’t tried WriteShop yet, take a look! It’s a fun way to get excited about writing! The techniques they use are really engaging and my children are actually excited about writing now instead of dreading it!
