(Bonnyville, Ab. Canada)
One thing I like doing to get creative juices flowing and a little creative writing accomplished in the process is cartooning with a twist.
Draw a picture of something (perferably something they are interested in) with a piece missing that they have to use their imagination to complete. For example, an egg that just hatched with nothing inside. The caption on this might read; "What is in the egg?" Or a crater in the ground with a caption "What just fell from the sky?" Or maybe a princess falling from a tower with a caption that reads; "What is the princess about to land on?"
Then have them write a simple story explaining the event.
A varriation of this for more artistic kids is to have them draw a whole comic of the story complete with story borders and quotation bubbles.
