Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding  

This download includes two slightly different worksheets – the first provides students with possible words to put in the gaps, while the second has students picking between adjectives, nouns, animals, etc. Pick the worksheet that works for the majority of your class and then level up or down for each, depending on the skill level of your class.

An option is to have students work in small groups to create the story and brainstorm possible word combinations.
