Every Friday, I give my Language Arts classes a story prompt, and they write stories for me. Yesterday’s prompt was kind of unusual – it was music. I played a musical piece for them, and asked them to write or describe a story that might go along with it.
I didn’t tell them what the music was from, but it was the “Fratelli Chase” from “The Goonies”. I told them that if they recognized where the tune was from, they shouldn’t say. There was only one student who thought it sounded familiar.
The music I played is HERE. I will also embed it below:
I’ve read half the stories, and it was really interesting – lots of chases and fights.
When they were finished writing, I showed them the opening scene of “The Goonies”. It was fun to see. I should watch that movie again…
For your sentimental enjoyment, HERE is the opening scene. Also embedded below:
