A New Twist on Sticker Stories

I have been using sticker stories with my students this year as a choice in work on writing for Daily 5.  They get to pick 5 stickers to start their picture.  Then they add detail and write a story to match their stickers.  They have really loved this!  Who doesn't love stickers?  I buy the sticker packs that Michaels, Jo-Ann Fabrics, and ACMoore sell for $1.  They have lots of little stickers in a pack.  They always have them out for each holiday.

While blog stalking tonight, I read Cecilia's post at I Love 1st Grade for her new Work on Writing Labels-Sticker Stories. She was kind enough to let me try it out with my students! I am excited to offer this new choice to my 2nd graders! I'm sure they will love it!

Stop by her blog and check it out!
