Trying out new visual writing prompts

Recently I was lucky enough to win some cards 'That's MY story'  by an Australian designer to encourage children to create stories.

I adapted the idea of the cards to a combined session on introduction to narrative in a rural school, a mix of year 3-year 6 children.

Here are some samples:

The children were enthusiastic and enjoyed the group introduction to narrative.  Love the hook sentence also.
The cards were successful and some great initial writing resulted.

Here are the card details: That's MY story  a simple, fun, storytelling card game that encourages imagination and creativity.  There are red character cards, green setting cards and yellow wild cards (complication or problem cards)
