About the Book

Jumpstart! Storymaking is a collection of games and activities to develop the creative process of ‘storymaking’. It focuses upon 'storytelling for writing' as well as creating a whole school culture of storytelling, reading and writing. Storymaking is the process of retelling, innovating and creating new stories.

Like the best-selling Jumpstart! Literacy, this book contains imaginative ‘quick-fire' ideas that could be used as creative warm-ups and starters or developed into lessons. There are over 100 provocative and thought-provoking games and activities, intended to ‘jumpstart’ storytelling, reading and writing in any Key Stage 1, 2 or 3 classroom. Practical, easy-to-do and vastly entertaining, the ‘jumpstarts’ will appeal to busy teachers.
