Sandwich Story Starters

Students observe a teacher demonstration of a writing metaphor using pieces of dry bread which represent boring writing. They watch as she adds layers to the sandwich which represent good writing traits. They participate in a Story Relay to produce a piece of writing that exhibits good writing traits. They continue this activity until they have a three paragraph essay which they share and publish to a website.
