Writing Prompt

This morning we are going back to writing a narrative!  Using the prompt picture below, think about how to include that scene in your story.

You will be brainstorming ideas together in groups, then you will need to plan what your pebble, rock and boulder will be.  You will need to write a sizzling start, and make sure you have a long, strong tension scene. (You can use your 5+1 senses brainstorms here!) and you will end it with an exciting ending and character wrap-up.  So – a FULL STORY plan.

WHO?  Who are these characters? What are they saying?  How old is the girl? What do you think she is looking at?  Does the dog belong to her?  Is anyone else in the plane?

WHERE?   Where are they going?  How did they get there?  Will they succeed? What might happen to complicate their trip?

WHAT?  What could happen next?  What kind of plane is it?

WHEN?  When is the story set?  If this is an old historical plane, have they gone through a time portal?

WHY?  Why are they both wearing those hats and glasses? Why are they there anyway? Why are there no windows?

HOW?  How did they get there?  How are they feeling?  How do you think the story ends?

SIZZLING START: Try to start with dialogue today: “………”


These are some ideas for your brainstorm.  We will start in small groups with a whiteboard and you will need to brainstorm about 10 reasons why they are in a small old-fashioned plane.  Then we’ll share them and you can choose one to write your story about.  BRAINSTORM – WHAT COULD THIS STORY BE ABOUT?
