Here’s a fun way to build sentences and paragraphs and just have fun with your students. This is also a great way to practice writing for the #WIG. Check out’s Mix and Match activity! Want to try the one that I made? Click here.

Want to make one of your own? Check out these directions from Richard Byrne (Free Tech For Teachers). Flippity’s Mix & Match template can be used to create image-based and text-based random story starters. Basically, the Mix & Match lets you create an online grid featuring phrases or images that you have included a spreadsheet. The template then show students the phrases or images in a random order. Watch Byrne’s video to learn how to use Flippity’s Mix & Match template. Or you can test the template (without the image option) on this demo page.
