Do you have reluctant or emerging writers? If so, then you need this step-by-step creative writing unit! Using the 'somebody wants but so then' (SWBST) approach, this animals-themed NO PREP digital resource includes a 5-step creative writing formula (slides), examples, writing rubrics, and more.

The formula in this resource only works for stories about animals. I will be developing resources for people and other topics in the near future!

This resource pairs well with my other animals-themed creative writing units, which come with graphic organizers, handouts, and anchor charts:
It makes a great addition to your writing lessons or centers. Perfect for elementary and lower middle-school classrooms, homeschool families, and cooperatives.
