Story Stones for Work on Writing!
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!
