There are 3 parts to this set – the dice, the drawing/writing pages, and the booklet.

There are 4 dice – two for adjectives, one for nouns, and a final one for verbs. We talk about parts of speech a lot while doing mad libs, but this way a great way to reinforce the idea that the adjectives describe the nouns.

So the first step is to roll your dice. We just started with the adjectives and nouns as we really just wanted to create a character. The first one we got was a Majestic, Confused Trash Can.

That was definitely motivational! We found the irony quite amusing.

We used the drawing page to sketch a picture and write one sentence.

Then we used the 8-page mini book (see how to make them here!) to write a few more facts, hobbies, and draw another photo.

I love the mini book because it’s something they can create and own.

  • I have a very reluctant writer. Getting him to write ANYTHING is like pulling teeth.
    I printed out this writing game. He wrote about an immense quirky shark who likes to surprise his friends. When all done my son said “that was awesome! Can we do that again another day?”.
    Thank you!!!
