The students are instructed to write a ‘hook’ for each paragraph below. Remember, a ‘hook’ is used to catch the readers’ attention.
Some ways to use hooks include; a description of the setting (it was a bright, sunny day in our small town), onomatopoeia (crash, boom, bang), a question (have you ever been hurt so badly you felt like you couldn’t breathe?), a teaser or description of an event (It seemed like a regular Tuesday when I woke up). Be Creative and have fun!
This activity includes seven story beginnings. The beginnings are missing an introduction sentence.
