At Blossom, activities we do in the English Creative Writing curriculum aim to enhance children’s thinking processes and stimulate their emergent writing skills. One of the key areas we cover in the Creative Writing curriculum across levels is, ‘Storytelling Techniques.’ With the wonderful selection of stories introduced during the English Creative Writing lesson, children learn to identify various aspects of writing and creating a story. From writing a simple invitation to eventually progressing to writing their own short storie. The English Creative Writing curriculum takes children through a gradual journey confidence building and age-appropriate creativing writing learning objectives from Nursery 2 to Kindergarten 2.
One of the key areas we focus on in the English Creative writing curriculum across the 3 levels, is ‘Storytelling Techniques.’ Here, children will be taught to look at stories from different points of view, explore various styles of creating a story and try changing plots of stories to their imaginations. By going through these processes, children gradually learn to broaden their minds and learn to think out of the box. Storytelling does not rely on storybooks alone, it includes songs, rhymes and poetry, all of which help to develop children’s vocal and verbal prowess and build their little confidence to do presentations and recitals in front of an audience.
Creative Writing has also proven to be an emotional outlet for young children as they transfer their inner-most thoughts and feelings through writing and role-playing.Some other main objectives of Blossom’s English Creative Writing curriculum are to foster creative expression in children by getting them to contribute ideas without hesitation, to stimulate their thinking by encouraging them to look at the world in a different way and deriving solutions for problems in an unique way. At the end of the day, we aim to scaffold individual child’s learning through age-appropriate activities and to guide the child to acquire writing skills through their journey from Nursery 2 to Kindergarten 2.
