In a desperate attempt to find one more idea to blog about I randomly stumbled across this website. I’m not even sure what thought processes went into finding this site but I’m very glad I did.
The website is called Story Starters and is found on the Scholastic website. Students get to pick a genre – fantasy, adventure, sci-fi or scrambler and by spinning different wheels a story starter is generated for them.
For example- I picked ‘Scrambler’ and the story starter that was generated for me was ‘ Write an autobiography about an overweight basketball player who works in a zoo.
Imagine how much fun kids could have letting fate decide their story ideas. I can see this being really engaging and would even get those kids who hate writing keen to put pencil to paper!
