Do you need a really good writing example to inspire your students?
These opening paragraphs for creative writing sessions (or for homework) include well structured sentences. They are ideal for Grades 4 to 7. The crime / mystery focus will engage writers and should initiate some good class discussions.
Three openers are included. Each 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.
The three starters are titled...
1. The Guards
2. In the Middle of the Night
3. The Plan
I am teacher based in the UK, but have written this so that the spellings are accurate for both the UK and the US
Please take a look at the TRIAL version - the one with the green cover. It includes one of starters from this pack to try with your class.
