I’m going to keep my conversational side to a minimum today. *gasp*
Today’s activity was probably one of the most fulfilling and mind blowing educationally we’ve done so far.
‘That little something’ or more appropriate a bunch of little somethings crept in very early on in this activity and I couldn’t shake ’em.
Summer of Fun – Activity No. 13 – Writing Short Stories
We Googled Story Starter Sentences for Short Stories, picked from several different sites, wrote down 20 of our favorites, put them in a ‘hat’, each of us chose one, then we wrote our stories!
Side Note: If you have wee one’s who are not yet writing, please don’t let that deter you. They can tell you a story based on the starter sentence and you can scribe for them. I’ll have to tell you in another post all the “little somethings’ to that little exercise.
We learned so many things, I’m not sure I can get them all down without making this post extremely long.
- Self Confidence
I could go on and on.
Writing, like reading, is so much more than just the actual physical activity. (Psst, that’s the whole of the ‘little something’)
I’m giving you links to our stories, because, well, if I were to write them in this post, you would be here for awhile! Hey, maybe writing them here IS a good idea 😉
My hope is that you will want to read them all, but I know we all have different time constraints, likes, etc. whatever you chose, all or one, we hope you enjoy!
