Creative Writing Suggestion Box

posted Feb 7, 2013, 4:01 AM by Patrick Johnson

Since September, students have been writing daily. They were given a noun and a verb and had to use the words in a small written piece of work. Students have been very creative and descriptive with their writing. After students finish their writing piece (I usually give 10 to 15 minutes), students share their writing during our community circle. Students are giving feedback from other students and myself which include likes and possible next steps in their writing.
We now have changed this writing time from Daily Writing to Creative Writing. Marshall, a grade 2 student, even created a suggestion box where students can suggest nouns, verbs and adjectives as starting points for writing pieces.
