Do you need a really good writing example to inspire your students?
This opening paragraph for creative writing sessions (or for homework) includes well structured sentences. It is ideal for Grades 4 to 7. The crime / mystery focus will engage writers and should initiate some good class discussions.
It includes a version that can be easily cut out and stuck in their books, and a version that can be completed on the sheet in class or for homework.
If you liked this, please take a look at the paid version which includes this opener and two new ones.
