The team over at UKEdChat have created a great, adaptable, classroom resource which encourages creative thinking within pupils by generating silly sentences and then writing a story based upon the cards chosen.
Pupils are encouraged to randomly choose one card from each section: an adjective; a character; an action, and; a location, then write a story. Once mixed up, pupils could write about (for example):
An evil giraffe who blows stuff up when sleep walking!
The instructions from the free downloadable resource are replicated below, but this is a great activity that could be used to encourage pupils writing at home or in the classroom. With 16 choices provided on each column, there are a total number 64 combinations, with space to add your own ideas onto the cards.
The team behind this are creating an HTML5 version of the activity, which will be available on computers and tablets.
