Family Homeschool Writing Idea

by Kim

Add a Line and Pass it on

I started a story with just a few words on the first line and then passed it on to one of my children.

They had one day to write a set number of sentences to add to the story. The next day they read it to us and it was passed to the next sibling to follow the pattern.

It was funny to see the twists and turns the story took as it passed from hand to hand.

The first story line I used was,"One day I saw a bear..."


Lovely idea Kim. Thanks for sharing.
best wishes, Julie.

great idea

What a fantastic idea Kim!! My son hates to write and I was wondering how to encourage him without overwhelming him or putting him off writing forever.

I will definitely try this with him.


Ps - would love to see how your story turned out
