My kids love writing and sharing stories, but sometimes they’re missing the basics (setting, conflict, etc.) or they don’t know what to write about. So this helps them stay focused and gets them started if they’re stuck. I have them write a rough draft (and maybe final draft) on another piece of paper. You could easily require the use of vocabulary/spelling words, specific kinds of figurative language, etc. in the story also.
