Round Robin Writing

I did a round robin writing activity with my classes today. Some of my students just amaze me. They are worse than second graders. I gave each student a story starter, explained what we were doing and how the period would work. Some of them just looked at me in awe; they stated they were confused and didn't know what to do - how could they start a story from the line I gave them??? UUUUGGGGHHHH. I swear.

Augh.... I agree! They are so helpless.

I know that you are not looking for a solution... maybe brainstorming the next line as a group would help them get started so that they would leave you the heck alone!!! I do not like individually helping each child in class!
