Try this free sample from Finish the Story worksheets.  A fun morning work or early finisher project. This sample is from the FINISH THE STORIES writing product.  3 themed sets that include three pages per set.  Kids begin with a creative writing page by filling in simple WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHY prompts, followed by a page for them to illustrate.  A third lined-page is included so students can either add to their story or make a new longer version of their story.

In first grade, sentences are a key focus of instruction. Who is the story about? What is the story about? Where does it take place. When? Why? Picture and word prompts encourage young writers to build sentences using subjects and verbs. Their brief compositions will describe people, places and things, events and experiences. 

Every child will create a unique page based on their likes, skills and experiences. A START THE STORY page includes words and fun graphic prompts. This is followed by a FINISH THE PICTURE page. Often, after drawing, children want to add to their story. A FINISH THE STORY page is provided.

Challenging vocabulary is included. Fun picture prompts make it easy for students to decode words. 

START THE STORY activities can be adapted to grades K through grade 1. Children are able to respond according to their individual interests, skill and ability levels. 

Sharing stories is a key component to the writing process. Children are motivated by hearing their peer’s ideas, and sharing their own. Funny stories and creative images make sharing time a highlight of the START THE STORY experience.
