Creative writing is an important writing style for students to learn about and experience on their journey to becoming writers. Helping students embrace their creativity is a great way to get students writing. Students enjoy writing more when they get choice over their topic and format. Read more about how I use the RAFT writing model in the blog post Student Engagement Through Choice Writing.

Creative writing can be used weekly during free choice writing time, as a stand-alone unit or left for those days when you have a substitute teacher and want to leave an engaging lesson for your students.

Check out the creative writing lessons below to help infuse excitement into your writing program.
