World of Animals StoryBuilders
What’s this? A curious porcupine hears, “Help! Save him!” . . . and it’s coming from the pantry? A forgetful robin flies into a car and gets separated from his family? 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!
You can mix and match cards from other WriteShop® StoryBuilders decks, because every card is different! Expand character options, settings, and plot possibilities by adding to your StoryBuilder collection. Watch for new titles coming soon!

“A success! StoryBuilders came to my rescue one Monday morning as I prepared to teach creative writing to 3rd through 6th grade students at our home school co-op. Some of the results were hilarious! It has become one of the class’s favorite activities. I highly recommend it for your homeschool or classroom setting. You’re almost certain to be surprised by the results!” –Stacy, IL
