John Lewis Childs School third graders in Kelly Higgins’ class participated in a dice rolling writing activity to create winter-themed stories on Dec. 13.
After being paired in groups, the students rolled the dice three times to reveal the stories’ character, setting and conflict. Some characters included a snowman, a sled dog team and a cookie baker, while some settings were a holiday feast, a frozen lake or a snowy forest. Conflicts included getting caught in a blizzard, seeing something magical and going to a holiday concert, among others. Once their story elements were revealed by the dice rolls, the students wrote their stories together in their groups.
“Roll a Holiday Story” is an HMH into Reading writing activity.
