Resources for Writing Narratives in Speech

I love working on the skill of generating fictional narratives with students, but prior to 2020 I almost exclusively used physical games and the occasional PDF as opposed to online writing games or apps. One silver lining of the switch to teletherapy (when did that happen again? time no longer has meaning) has been the discovery of so many cool digital resources and activities that can be used online as well as during in-person sessions.


Some of my favorite physical games for working on writing narratives that I've still been pulling out during teletherapy sessions are:


Tall Tales


This game comes with pictures and tiny manipulatives similar to Dinky Doodads that can be used to create a story. The pictures and objects also have many other language uses such as describing, naming from a description, comparing/contrasting, and categorizing.
