Do your students look like this student when you assign them a new creative writing activity?
Instead, engage your students by providing them with creative writing activities that build their writing skills in a fun and challenging way!
As teachers, we frequently call our writing lessons "creative writing," but it is often a challenge to inspire our students to write their own stories, poems, and share their feelings and opinions on paper.
It is important to provide your students with creative writing activities that they will find fun and interesting. If you start off with a creative idea to begin with, you will discover that your students will become engaged and excited with writing about the topic that you have assigned them.
My students are enthusiastic to begin their new creative writing assignments because I use writing templates that have unique shapes and combine them with fun writing topics.
The writing templates that I have designed are unique in style, layout, and content. In addition, my creative writing assignments focus on the writing process. My students are required to write, edit, and revise their first drafts before they write and publish the final drafts of their creative writing projects.
I have found that my students strive to use their best effort to complete their creative writing assignments because they are proud of their finished projects and the classroom bulletin board displays featuring their hard work.
The bulletin boards in my classroom are filled with colorful displays of my students' finished creative writing projects. I have received positive comments about my classroom atmosphere from other teachers, the administrators at my school, and parents.
I have created four web pages devoted to different types of creative writing teaching resources. Below you will be able to read information about these four different creative writing teaching resources pages.
You can click on the underlined links in each paragraph, and at the bottom of each text box, to go to these four writing resources web pages.

Hi Heidi. I just want t say that my class is year one in Australia and they just love all of your work. We use your book report projects religiously and it has made my teaching and the students' learning improve by about 100%. The students just love it. Thank you so much for your help.

Hi there! I just found your website through Pinterest, and I am looking forward to using your book reports that I just bought to help motivate my fifth grade students! Thanks for putting these out there. I'm a relatively new teacher and need all the help I can get!

I stumbled across your website over the weekend and I'm SO glad I did! Some great ideas and an extra thank you for the UK spellings! I bought the back to school pencils, punctuation puppies, Willy Wonka group project and the characters! I think these are great resources and even though it's the summer holidays, I've been into school to get my display paper up and have put up the title banners - they look brilliant! Thank you!

Heidi, I just had to write and let you know that your website has helped me create the most awesome author study of Roald Dahl's books. My students loved completing the big animal shaped projects you designed for The Enormous Crocodile, Esio Trot, and The Giraffe, and the Pelly and Me. For the final project, they had so much fun writing and drawing about the characters from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory using your Willy Wonka Factory project. Thanks for sharing your scrumdiddlyumptious ideas !

I feel so fortunate to have found your website and I have referred several of my co-workers to your website. Just for the month of January, there were three teachers displaying your book reports. I had the trophy reports, my neighbor to the left had the computer reports, and my neighbor to the right had the birthday cake reports. Thank you so very much for all of your work!

I just wanted to say thank you for the most amazing teaching resources that I have ever come across in my thirty years of teaching. I have used many of your book report sets this year and my students absolutely loved them. What was particularly pleasing was seeing some of my reluctant readers (especially the boys) really wanting to read books and complete the activities. Keep up the great work!
