πŸ“ 3 Word Stories – the cure to creative writing

If you’re wanting to introduce creative writing but aren’t sure where to start, Β one great technique is to use “3 Word Stories.”

Just as the title suggests you give the students a topic and they write a whole story in just 3 words.

It sounds simple, yes?  But you should see some of the amazing works of art that come out of it.  It is just mind blowing! 🀯

And of course it removes the dreaded “fear of the blank page” paralysis that all humans face.

Here are a few examples from the fantastic Genki English community on Facebook – you are all amazing!

3 Word Stories on “Autumn” Β 

3 Word Summer Stories

 

And two Sets of Happy 3 Word Stories – Part 1

And Part 2Β 

 

What will your students come up with?

Be genki,

Richard

P.S. Β Here’s a bonus collection for Easter next year!

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. And when I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. So I'm sharing it all with you now...
