1588. Kids love stories

Kids love stories. Tell them stories in the target language, English in our case. You can get them from readers. 

Anyway, now with my adult students I make stories up. I give them worksheets with numbered sentences. Each sentence is a short step within the stories. Each sentence is below the previous one. 

With your younger students you all can create a story. Provide the first sentence, for instance with a thriller taste. Ask your kids give you more sentences. Write them on the chalkboard. Though they may be childish to you, accept their proposals – their contributions are important to them.
