Mixed Up Fairy Tale Writing Prompt


I was inspired to create this FREE Mixed Up Fairy Tale Writing Prompt after reading ‘The Great Fairy Tale Disaster’ by David Conway.
In this book the Big Bad Wolf is fed up with blowing down houses. So off he goes in search of a new fairy tale to be in. Wearing the ball gown in Cinderella does not work and is embarrassing. Climbing up the beanstalk and seeing the giant scared the wolf, and getting kissed by the prince in Sleeping Beauty is not for the wolf at all. As the wolf runs from page to page the whole book of fairy tales becomes a great mixed up mess.

With this writing prompt, students roll a die four times. The first roll will decide their main character, the second the other characters, the third decides the setting and the fourth the problem of the story. Students then create a story with their rolls! You can either display this table on a smartboard or data projector, or photocopy the blackline master to hand out to students.
