Here is a free download for students to write a seven sentence story using transition words.
With most classes, I write a story with the whole class having students tell me ideas for each sentence.
This could be done as a partner activity where students take turns filling in blanks. It could be a part of a writing station during literacy time.
If you have a class that could manage this, have one person start with a title and pass it to the next person who writes the next sentence. Then the paper is passed to yet a third person and so on until all the blanks are filled.
We recently studied beach life and had a field trip to the beach. I used this form to have them write their accounts. I like being able to integrate the content with the writing lessons I already have.
You can purchase all ten forms I use for creative writing assignments and bulletin boards here in my Teachers Pay Teachers store and here in my Teachers Notebook store. I have included at least two suggestions for each form that are not here on my blog.
