Dollar Tree Find #1 {of 7} - STICKER STORIES!

Dollar Tree Find #1 - Stickers!!
Do you have miscellaneous stickers laying around your classroom or home?  What about those stickers that come in the mail.... HOLD ON TO THEM!  Have you heard of sticker stories??  It is an easy and fun way to get little Smart Tarts' creative juices flowing while illustrating the backdrop and writing an innovative story.  I found these cute animal stickers at Dollar Tree.
The hum drum: {Smart Tart}"I don't know what to write about!" or {Teacher} "What writing prompt should I give them today?" is removed.... and all it starts with is a sticker!  Not just ANY sticker, but a sticker that the STUDENT aka Smart Tart chooses.  :)  It gives them a little bit of power. Think of all the choices: cartoon characters, superheroes, animals, shapes, cars & trucks, fruits and veggies... Yadda, Yadda, Yadda {or as my son says, "Yadi, Yadi, Yadi!}

Here are a couple of shots of my very own Smart Tart, Violet, selecting, illustrating and writing her personal sticker story about an elephant lost in the desert.  Enjoy!

Come back tomorrow for my next Dollar Tree find!
