It is a story board, and I am sharing the SMARTBoard version as well as the handout for the students. You won't need a SMARTBoard to do it. Here's how it works:
Each student needs a die and a pencil. I have taken different story elements and put them atop each column. Under each story element, there are 6 options. Students ROLL their story. They roll the die to determine the setting, the conflict...(They love this part!) As they roll an element, they circle it on their storyboard. The SMARTBoard version is so that you can model how it works, or you can use it to write your own!
When they have completed the storyboard, they use the elements rolled to write their story. I usually need to remind my third graders to add details (like naming the characters...) It is a fun activity, and I hope your kids like it. If they do, you can easily set others up more storyboards for other times of the year!
