Product Description
This is a great activity to help get your students' creative juices flowing! Good for the beginning of the school year, the beginning of a narrative unit, the day before a vacation, or any time you want to get the students engaged!

The product contains five different story starters for you to use during a "write around" activity.

Using the method of your choice, create groups of up to five students. Explain to students the purpose of the activity: to get their creative juices flowing, to build writing stamina, to have fun! :)

Give each student in the group a different story starter. Provide a time limit (3-5 minutes) for each student to add to his or her first story.

When time is up, have students pass their papers to the right, read what the previous author wrote on the paper, and continue the story for another 3-5 minutes. Repeat the process until students have their original story back.

The students love to read what happened to their stories! I like to have them share within their small groups, then do a whole class share of the best (usually funniest) ones.
