Scholastic Story Starters provides students useful tools.  One such tool is the Story Starters generator.  Students begin by typing their name and selecting their grade level (1-4).  Next, click the handle and watch the four wheels spin.  When it stops, it will provide students with an idea for a story.  If, for some reason, a student does not like a particular wheel, the may spin it again.  Next, students pick the format for their story: notebook, letter, newspaper or postcard. Students may add a drawing to their story as well.  When finished with their writing, they may print it.  If students decide they would like the story in a different format, they can change it, too.
