Ages: 7-11

The resource below contains one hundred different prompts for stories. Each story starter is on a single card which can be used in a variety of ways:

  • Give each child in the class a random card and ask them to continue the story.
  • Give the same story starter to every child and then compare the stories that they create.
  • Choose a card and model the story that you would write using it.
  • Use one of the cards as a prompt for shared / guided writing.
  • Use the cards as a homework activity.
  • Give children more than one card. Can they include the ideas on all of the cards in their story?
  • Challenge your children to make up their own story starters for each other.
  • The ideas could also be used as an Art activity. Can children create a picture based on the prompt?
