PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Help students have writing fun as they spur their imaginations to create short stories.

“I can't think of how to start!” “What am I going to say?” “I just don't have any ideas!”

As a teacher, how often have you heard any of these complaints?

IN THE BEGINNING . . . is designed to help your students
prick their imaginations and overcome those getting-started problems that frequently plague them.

The packet includes 20 reproducible story starters, all designed to give students more than enough information to begin their stories.

Topics range from life as a monarch, to life in the sports world, to life in everyday USA.

Each story has several introductory paragraphs that give background information about the setting, characters, and plot.

Possible endings are also included, but your students may choose to go in an entirely different direction!

After your students have read the beginnings, they can stimulate their creativity and let their imaginations take over.

This classroom-tested activity is suitable for middle school and high school classes. Created by Susan Thurman.
