2021 Winter – Creative Writing for Elementary Students

creativewritingimage

Fostering a love of writing can be massively beneficial to your student later in life, and it will help them think out of the box.

Writing engages both sides of your brain: the right side is responsible for creativity and the left side is the more analytical and logical side. Both sides are crucial to all writing, but especially creative writing.

For elementary students, now is an excellent time to experiment with creative writing because it helps them channel their imaginations into a productive format and learn how to express their thoughts effectively. 

We’ll begin with a discussion of what good writing is and what each of us enjoys about it, then move into an exploration of different types of creative writing, ranging from fiction to poetry

At the conclusion of our class, we will compile our work into a self-published magazine (known as a Zine in the literary world) and each student will receive a copy!

 

all of our advice should just be tiny zines ok | Zine, Teaching blogs, Kids writing
