Narrative Sentence Starter Cards

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 10 pages | Grades: 1 - 6

Thirty sentence starter cards for narratives.

Use the Narrative Sentence Starter Cards to encourage your students to write something imaginative and interesting.

These cards can be used in a variety of ways. A few ideas are:

  • Project one of the writing stimulus on your interactive whiteboard and set the timer. Have your students brainstorm ideas for a narrative text.
  • Give each student a different writing stimulus. Have them write a narrative text for their sentence starter.
  • Place these cards in a writing center for students to use when they can’t think of anything to write about.

    Hello, When I tried to print these prompts off, the writing is all blurred and black. Is there a problem with this download? I tried several times. This would be terrific for my classes! Kind Regards, Jayne
