I've started a writing workshop for the kids in my daughter's 4th/5th combination class. It's called "Story Builders". I go in once a week for an hour and meet with them in groups and we talk about stories and play creativity games. I'm also giving them writing prompts to use in their own writing.
Here are the ones they've seen so far:
- Mary's lamb was indestructible.
- Whatever you do, don't touch that!
- She said "Gus" was her plant's name.
These first three came to me pretty easily. (Weird things pop up in my head all the time!) But if you have any suggestions for future writing prompts, I'd love to hear them!
