Reading & Writing
Lesson Plan
Creative writing is typically fiction or poetry. Writing creatively lets students employ their wildest imaginations while continuing to learn how to write complete sentences and effective paragraphs. Unlike persuasive writing, fantasy is front and center. These resources teach skills essential to writing successful fiction and poetry and help students develop creative writing confidence. Students learn how to write creatively by responding to fun writing prompts, considering what-if scenarios, and adopting different perspectives. A variety of lesson plans and workshops are designed to help students in first through fifth grades with creative writing. With these resources, students will learn skills associated with creative writing, such as how to develop strong characters, and you will have fun teaching them how to write from their imaginations. After students complete these activities, they should be more comfortable writing poetry and other creative genres.
