The first few sentences of a narrative text are extremely important. Once the reader has read the first few lines of a story, they will make a decision about whether or not to keep reading.

One of the most effective ways to begin is a narrative is to create a ‘hook’ to capture the reader’s attention. This PowerPoint presentation includes seven sensational methods that your students can use to begin their stories in an exciting and interesting way.

Project these sensational story starters onto your interactive whiteboard to stimulate discussion; alternatively, print and laminate the PDF document and display as posters around your classroom.
