Like a lot of the inspiration I get for my classroom, today’s post was originally inspired by sweet Tara! When I saw her post about story stones I knew that they would be a perfect addition to my Work on Writing choices for Daily 5!
I keep the stones in a little blue basket that I got from the Target Dollar Spot! That basket fits perfectly in my bigger pink basket that I use to organize all the Daily 5 choices for my students!
My students can choose to use the story stones to help inspire them with their writing! They can choose 2 or 3 stones and then take them back to their seat to start writing their story! I make sure to reiterate that they should pick their stones quickly, or else they will just stand there looking at all the pictures forever!
The story stones were super easy to make! I just bought some stones and fun, colorful stickers, which I stuck on the stones and then used Mod Podge to help seal them on!
I love having a variety of simple choices for my students to work on during Daily 5, and they always love when things are changed up a bit!
I’m linking up with Tara for her April Monday Made It!
