In this writing activity, I prepare 10 of each of the following elements of a story: character, time, place and situation. I have my students select 4 numbers (from 1 to 10) which corresponds to an item on each of the elements. The first number is the character their stories are to focus on, the second number is the time for their stories, and so on.
Students should write their numbers on their notebook which they cannot change after. Then I show them this PowerPoint and they take notes of the elements of their own story. Students can add characters or setting, but their chosen elements should be the focus of the story.
