CLASSROOM SLICE OF LIFE STORY CHALLENGE: DAY 25 OF 31
It’s Day Twenty-Five of the Classroom Slice of Life Story Challenge. You are ALMOST there! Just six more days to go!
A really great lead sentence can really pull a reader into your story–not only that but as a writer, once you have a great lead sentence, the rest of the writing comes more easily!
Check out some great leads by students over the past few days and weeks:
“I watched as mom slid the batter into the oil. Bubbles formed and encased the little clump of batter.
‘See how it rose to the top immediately?’ she said, ‘That’s how you know when the oil is hot enough.'”

Rain has a mind of it’s own. One moment the sky is bright and blue. The next moment it is dull and grey.
