Scholastic: Story Starters

The Scholastic Story Starters website can be used in the classroom to support the development of ideas during the creative writing process.

Write a short interview with a bewildered mermaid who hatches from a speckled egg.

This could be used during literacy workshops as a short or extended writing exercise. The site also allows you to create your text online.

You can also access a Teaching Guide to support the use of the resource in the classroom.
