Story Starters from Madame Esmé

I furiously adore story starters, and in a future life I shall do not much more than complete story starters and eat blueberry muffins.

Esmé Raji Codell’s story starter list makes me want to be a young learner in her class.

Write the lesson plan of a very mean teacher.

Describe the school of your dreams!

Describe a walk down the street from the point of view of a ninety-year-old person.

Write something using exclamation points as your only punctuation.

Check her book How to Get Your Child to Love Reading for loads more (pages 324-330).

What’s your favorite story starter?
