Instructional Ideas

  • During journaling or freewriting time, provide these starters for learners interested in practicing their creative writing skills
  • Instead of printing and handing these out, write or post them up on the board and invite pupils to choose their favorites
  • Pair this with instruction on how to construct a narrative
Classroom Considerations

  • While the resource says to give one to each student, you'll have to print more than one copy of some of them unless you only have 17 students
Pros

  • The starters include a good variety of different characters and settings
  • Kids will enjoy using their creativity to expand upon these ideas
Cons

  • None
