WriteShop StoryBuilders - Winner of three awards from The Old Schoolhouse Magazine's Review Crew!
World of People StoryBuilders
What’s this? A grumbling pirate on horseback meets a talking animal? A kindly professor finds his long-lost uncle in an ancient city? What kid wouldn’t love to write a story filled with such intrigue, mystery, humor, or whimsy?
WriteShop® StoryBuilders card decks help to jumpstart a creative writing project by providing students with the basic elements of a story—character, character trait, setting, and plot—laying a foundation for a joyful writing experience with some clever surprises thrown in along the way.
Break up your routine or add punch and variety to writing lessons by occasionally offering StoryBuilders. Use them in addition to or instead of a daily writing activity.
StoryBuilders may be used by students of all ages, from kindergarten through high school. Using the StoryBuilder Cards, they’ll develop their tales by picking one card from each category. Does the hero save the day? Will the notorious bad guy learn a lesson? And what twists and turns appear in the character’s path? A hurricane? A bag of loot? A mysterious letter? With hundreds of possible story combinations, no two will be alike!
"I am really mad at WriteShop. These StoryBuilders have proven to be too fun and my kids don't want to do anything else! Looks like math and science will be flying out the window today as we have already spent the morning writing from the cards. The boys are still at it! We are having a really fun day of creative writing. Thanks for giving us a boost!" --
Wendy, homeschooling parent
"Takes the groaning and moaning out of reluctant … writers." --Denise O., Chai Mommy
"And then came my miracle. My used-to-be-writer started writing and couldn’t stop! He started writing page after page! And he began making plans for the sequel before he even finished the first. Needless to say, I *LOVE* StoryBuilders!" --Kristin G., Adventures in Homeschooling
World of People features human characters such as policeman, candy maker, and detective.
