Story starters

We are learning how to write ‘Sizzling starts” during writing time. Sizzling starts capture the readers attention and makes the reader want to read more.

We have discussed some sizzling starts begin with a sound “Bang, crash”, I slammed the car door and stormed off towards Blake’s house, he was not going to get away with it this time, I was going to make sure of that!

Some sizzling starts begin using dialogue such as “How many times have I told you, your little brother’s head is not to be used as a mop!”

Our next step, is to learn to write quick written responses to some very funny story starters. Use the link below toΒ explore a fun way to create your very own story starters.
