School Days

Looking for some fun activities to help ease your family back into the school flow?  Scholastic’s Story Starters allows kids to express their creative talents.  Have a case of writer’s block? Don’t worry, Story Starters is here to help!  First, select a story theme, then spin the story wheel for a story topic. After you’ve finished writing your story, draw your own characters and print the finished product to show off!
