Set,

Write
You have 2.5 minutes to write your part of the story.

Remember write fast, fix spelling later.

Talk It UP
All done? Now arrange yourselves in order and
read your story to another group!

Three Word Challenge
e.g. soup, racing, invisible

The last thing he ate was
soup
, three days ago. The note in front of him asked for food. Yet the man
racing
down the street with the expensive Rolex on his wrist, didn't even see him.
When you are poor and need help, you are
invisible.
Your turn...
Get into pairs - each person has a piece of paper.

On this piece of paper write 3 words. (Like the example)

Swap with your partner. You have two minutes to write a Sizzling Starter using those three words.
It doesn't matter what you are arguing - just be persuasive!
The randomness of the words gets kids thinking outside of the box - creatively.
What's the point of that activity?
GAME ON!!
Start with the ACTION!!
