Share this printable

One of the most challenging parts of creative writing is getting a new piece started. Once kids get started, the story begins to flow. In this story: Marvin the Octopus wanted to see what life was like on land. He had only lived in the sea. Marvin loved all his fish friends, but he really wanted to see what it was like to live on land with humans. Marvin swam to the edge of the water and stepped onto the sand. The printable has different variations and based on the grade-appropriate horizontal ruling. Kids practice reading in manuscript or cursive and can choose a handwriting style.
