This 7 page creative writing packet teaches students about dialogue and also features some “make your own comic” templates, cut-outs, and a fully illustrated comic kids can fill in themselves.
Creating comics is a great way to encourage creative writing (with a bit of optional grammar thrown in). It’s also a great resource to motivate reluctant writers. Making a comic can be a lot less intimidating than filling up a blank lined page!
Here’s a breakdown of the pages in the printable:
Page 1 teaches students about dialogue, the punctuation used with speaking, and quotation marks.
Page 2 features a multitude of cutout shapes to use in the comic templates (speech bubbles and more)
Page 3 has a fully illustrated comic panel with multi-age characters and their speech bubbles. Students get to fill in what the characters are saying. This is great practice writing dialogue without having to worry about quotation marks!
Pages 4-7 are blank comic templates for students to illustrate and fill in.
Extend the activity:
After students fill out the comics, they can recreate the dialogue they wrote in the speech bubbles on paper to get practice using the correct punctuation. Remind students to refer to the speech bubbles in the printable, so that they know when to create a new paragraph and/or new quotation marks.

Learn about adjectives using this fall leaf printable. Kids can color the front of the leaves, cut them out, and then write short sentences featuring adjectives (to describe the leaves) on the back. There are two word banks that feature helpful words to help your budding writers come up with creative and beautiful sentences.
Younger students may have trouble writing small enough on the backs of the leaves. They can write single adjectives on the back.
You can also hole punch each leaf’s base and string them up to make a fun fall banner.
