reflection on responses
Instructions: write opening sentences or phrases on slips of paper. For example: ‘it was a dark and stormy night’, ’All I want for Christmas is…’ ‘The story made me want to…’
- Put the slips of paper into a non-see-through bag.
- Nominate a person to begin.
- He or she should reach into the bag and pull out a story starter. The starter they have drawn must be used to open their story. The story can be built and extended however the speaker wishes.
