These fun sentence starters can be used during a Daily 5 rotation, when learning narrative writing or as a free write.
Included you will find:
~ Cover page & Ending page with 22 sentences of various silly happenings. The pages are meant to be cut into thirds so that students can flip through and make their own funny story starter sentences.
~ Writing paper, both vertical and horizontal.
~ Story Response Sheet ( I use this when students want to read other students’ stories)
~ Silly Story Notebook covers, both vertical and horizontal.
Students choose from the following three sections:
~ a variety of characters --- ex. “ The perky pink pigs are”
~ what the character(s) are doing --- ex. “whistling a tune”
~ where the characters are at --- ex. “in the refrigerator.”
I have found that the easiest way to put together the book is to print them on cardstock, laminate them for durability and then assemble them on a binding comb. After you have the binding attached, cut the flaps. (I would do a test page first to make sure that the holes do not go through the lines you have to cut.)
Now it’s ready!
Kiddos can then use the story starter as either the first sentence to a story or use it as an idea to start a story.
