These ‘Library Challenge’ cards were made for my class library, but they could be used in a school library as well.

There’s a selection of 10 Library Challenge Cards, plus a ‘Library Challenge of the Week’ which just allows for changing things up a little without having to print and laminate more cards.
This scheme takes the group step by step through the stages of how to write a story.
