Trouble For Sammy
(By Cindy Stevens)

This activity is simple. I have provided the beginning to a number of stories. Your children finish them.

For more advanced writers: Have them complete the stories with the requested number of chapters.

Want fame and ... well ... fame? Submit your story ending and every few months I will post the one(s) I think are best. I’m still working on getting some prizes lined up here. Any ideas or want to help? Please .

Submit your story beginning. I am currently looking for authors to help me create a huge collection of story beginnings that children can finish. They must be original ideas.  for more information. (Or sit tight and maybe I’ll contact you.)

School contests: Looking for a great school contest? What could be better than a “Finish Me” Stories competition? Have all your students complete one of these stories and I will (help) judge them. If you let me know beforehand, I’ll arrange a prize for the winner and the school. And I'll promise to post the winners here.

“From a grateful teacher…”
The submissions you received were from my 4th grade class. We are from a small community and the students were very excited to choose their stories and create the endings from your site. You had a lot of great choices for all the ranges of ability. For most of my students, this was the first time they have ever typed a piece of their work. It was a great way for me to meaningfully incorporate technology in the classroom. From a grateful teacher,”
