Our new "first sentence" series asks the question: "You can't judge a book by its cover, but can you judge it by its first sentence?"
With these simple worksheets, each containing a different sentence from a classic story, students will exercise their skills of prediction, research, and creative writing.
Look for more "first sentence" prompts every week!
