Creative writing as a powerful educational tool for teachers

Creative writing

Every day is a challenge for a teacher. The moment you enter in the class, your students are always ready to blow you up with their queries and complaints. The situation get worse when you have prepared a lesson to teach them and they  are not in a mood to continue.  You can’t bring them back from their world to yours.

So it’s sometimes good to flow with the present situation  but with a different approach.

This is what happened with in the class last week and I  found a wonderful solution. At the same time the results were mind blowing and I couldn’t stop myself sharing this wonderful feeling with you.

They were noisy and not ready to listen to me. I was also tired and didn’t want to speak. I couldn’t leave the class too. I  got up from my chair and wrote few lines on the blackboard and  told them to complete the story beginning with these lines.I encouraged them to open the doors of their imagination.

Silence…a perfect silence!!!

The bell rang and I collected their notebooks.
I went to the staff room and started reading their masterpieces.

I found that every child has his own way of writing. I could feel the connection between their writing and their personal lives through their creative writings. The way they created characters in their writings unfolded many stories and their experiences in life.

Some showed their love for nature while others were not been able to give words for their thoughts…thus leaving their stories incomplete.

Some showed the humorous part of their  personality and brought a smile on my face.

Few took me to an imaginative land with lots of surprises and few added a flavour suspense and horror.

I found something common in all and that was the eagerness to show what all was there in their minds. There was no limitation, no boudations… they were free !!!

They poured their heart, mind and soul on the paper , leaving so many questions for Readers.

This was first time I  realised how creative writing can prove an excellent tool in teaching learning process and their physical and mental growth too.

Creative writing prompts can be in any form. Do try once in a week or month with your kids. You will come to know the other aspects of their personality…..!

 

As a teacher,what would you do in this kind of situation? 

As a student what would you like to do ?

Creative writing ideas for young kids – Next post coming soon !!!

Write to inspire – a small initiative

Hello friends….

It has been more than ten months since I am blogging and the learning experience I had during this short span of time is wonderful !!!

I am not a professional blogger.I write whatever comes in my mind and my heart feels.

While writing for my blog and reading others I have felt that…

Words have power to heal ….

Whether it’s writing or reading and this perception  has enkindled me to introduce a new page to my blog

WRITE TO INSPIRE ——See the MENU 

There are few observations behind the initiation of this page which I would like to share with you.

Human beings experience  same kind of emotions and face almost same kind of situations and circumstances to some extend.

Sooner or later we have to prepare ourselves for the tough times of our life.

Write when you can’t tell…

If you  are introvert (even others also), you must have had an experience the suffocation when you can’t tell your feelings to someone. Either you don’t rely on that person or because you don’t have  friend or some other reason.

I am not alone going through this phase…..

Yes, you read it correctly. Sometimes we say it ourselves ‘Why me?’. You will get the answer when will read the post written by someone who is facing the same problem like you.

Learn from the experience of others….

We learn from others as they are in same situation like you or they have come out successfully from that tough times. Then why not to learn from them and why not write how did  you find the peace in those bad days of your life.

Yes, let’s share our experience to inspire others. VISIT THE PAGE and become a helping hand for someone.

IT GIVES A TRUE HAPPINESS….

YOUR ONE WORD CAN BRING

A POSITIVE IMPACT ON

SOMEONE’S LIFE…..😍😍

And the journey continues…………!!!

Self love……!!!!

Find happiness….

Give time to yourself….

Do what makes you happy

Don’t look for happiness around

Let your soul dance in the rain

Let your heart feel pride on your gain

Feel the blessings that

showers upon you

from the vast sky

You are beautiful

You are the survior

You are the warrior

You are unbeatable….

Never let your love affected by success or failure

What a coincidence

he got the success

years later

which she wanted for him

few years back…..!

He has no regret now

because he has some one

who can understand him better

Rather than the one

who misunderstood

him few years back..!
