September Story Starters is a collection of individual topics your students can write about through expression of their thoughts and feelings. Each Story Starter states a particular theme which is connected with the month of September or Back to School. Your students will then elaborate on the given theme by writing their responses with as much detail as possible. Each page starts with an open-ended question or unfinished statement about the month of September or Back to School. Your students will then use the rest of the page to supply their written response by writing on the lines provided.
Some of the Back to School writing themes include:
*describing the characteristics of being a leader within the classroom or school
*describing the qualities of a good friend
*explaining how to be a good listener within the classroom
*explaining how to participate within the classroom setting
*as well as other topics.
In addition, some of the writing themes state particular celebrations/special days that occur within the month of September. Open-ended questions or unfinished statements about these special celebration days are given so that your students can elaborate on these particular themes as well.
