Build a Magical Story During Book Week 2024 

Book Week 2024 is all about celebrating the magic that a good story inspires. Help your students write a magical story of their own with this scaffolded digital writing activity perfect for use during Book Week 2024! 

At the beginning of the resource, the students are introduced to the following scenario:

Welcome to the enchanted forest! The fairies here are searching for new mystical stories to read. Use your imagination and writing skills to build the most magical story!

This interactive procedural writing activity contains the following slides:

  1. Story Title – Type six ideas for the title and choose the best one.
  2. Brainstorm – Brainstorm six different ideas for the magical story.
  3. Characters – Name and describe three characters in the story.
  4. Setting – List a time period, a list of places and a description of each place that will feature in the story.
  5. Plot – Create a problem, an attempt to solve the problem and a solution to the problem.
  6. Events – Describe three main events that will take place within the story.
  7. Draft – Create a draft of the story.
  8. Final Copy – Create a final copy of the story.
  9. Checklist – Check that the completed text contains all of the necessary features.

This interactive activity downloads as a Microsoft PowerPoint or a Google Slides file.

Reading Is Magic… And So Is Writing!

This resource makes a great whole-class modelled writing activity to use during Book Week.

Once your students have completed their magical story, why not have them share their work with another class, the school librarian, your school’s office staff or even the school principal? Your students will love reading their story to others and getting positive feedback on their work.

You could even have your students read their story at a school assembly or costume parade during Book Week!
