    Preschool Writing with the Creativity Journal

    • Product Type: PDF


    Getting preschoolers interested in writing is not always an easy task. I wanted my young children to have more natural experiences with holding a writing utensil, but getting them to the writing center wasn't very easy.


    The creativity journal changed that. I provide students with an idea of something they could put on paper. It may be a shape, a line or a seasonal shape. The students take what shape/object I have drawn and do whatever they wish with it. It is a starting-off point. Some may color in the shape, duplicate the shape, make the shape into something else completely or try and copy the shape name.


    Students are able to remain in control of their writing, but are also given a starting place (which seems to be the frustration with early writers). No two pieces of writing are the same, even with the same starter idea given.


    Preschool Creativity Journal is a way to get kids writing and thinking creatively!
