Learning Games Ideas - Creating Original Stories

Creating Original Stories

Objective: To help students create original stories and to develop good

communication skills.

Participants: Groups of students

Materials: Good starters for stories

Procedure: Divide the class into groups. Each group pick out from a pile of starters such as, “Once upon a time there was this poor little rich girl….” Each child takes turns by adding clearly a sentence of his/her own story. When everyone has had a turn, somebody makes a ending statement, possibly a moral lesson learned from the story.

Variations: This could be used for special holidays such as Halloween, Christmas, and Thanksgiving, for the spookiest, most exciting, and happiest story.
