Shared Writing is hard! In our Sprout activity, the Sprouters went over story elements. Then they each began a story. After 5 minutes, we announced, “SWITCH!” then the person to their left had to pick up where they left off. Each story ended up being well developed and interesting (some said weird, lol). Even though it was hard for some to get started and others to give up their original work, the day turned out fabulous with lots of laughs.
