Sentence Starters Aide Memoir

Sentence Starters Aide Memoir

If you are stuck for a story/sentence/paragraph starter then the Writer's Block Head will give you an aide memoir for how to start in a variety of ways. Children can draw parts of the Writer's Block Head too as they write to see how many different ways they can start their sentences. There is a poster and PPT explaining the different elements and examples too. For younger children I have simplified the Writer's Block Head so that they are not overwhelmed.
