Best Review - Top 7 Creative Writing Videos on Elephants

I

nvolving students in creative writing activities can enhance learning, foster student creativity, and stimulate and further develop their imagination and writing ability. The more students get involved in writing, the better their prowess will be as a writer and creative thinker.

After having your class watch these short videos, involve your students in composing either a poem or story.

The lesson plan included in each link gives step-by-step instructions for how your students can ideally proceed. It also includes a slideshow for the students to watch as well.

FYI – There are many benefits in involving your students in creative writing projects. Here are the details below.

For the Teacher

How do you justify taking class time to involve your students in a creative writing activity? How does investing class time in creative writing ventures benefit student-learning?

When you check out the Writing Standards and Speaking and Listening Standards for K-5 on the national level, you will be able to find your answer. The link is included in that actual article.

Writing poetry and / or short stories would fit that requirement. Their stories or poems would use the technique of including an introduction; it will follow a sequence of what happened first, what happened next, and what happened after that; they will include at least five facts about the topic as part of their story or poem; and they will wrap-up the story or poem with a concluding statement or section.

In the actual article, a link is included to more details from the Writing Standards and Speaking and Listening Standards for K-5.

Once again, their stories or poems would fit this requirement perfectly. Their writing should be clear. It should be coherent and easy to understand and visualize. If you allow class time for this activity, they will have the time to sufficiently develop and organize their ideas into a cohesive story or poem. Knowing that they will be sharing their story or poem with the class and submitting it to be included in a class book, your students will likely make the extra effort to make this story or poem entertaining and articulate.

This activity can be enhanced by assigning students to edit each other’s work. They can share their story or poem with a classmate. The classmate can ask questions about points that have not been made clear and make suggestions of how the story might be improved or enhanced with more clarifying details. Stress to students that they will be creating a first draft to be submitted to a partner for editing and then a final draft to be placed in the class book.
