Primary Creative Writing.
Wooten, Vida Jo
Texas Outlook, v52 n4 p24,64 Apr 1968
Children will enjoy creative writing in the primary grades if they are given inspiration, time to write, and the opportunity to share their work with classmates. A second-grade class began a creative writing project by listening to poetry and selecting poems to memorize and recite. This stimulated and encouraged them to evaluate and to write poetry. Because they lacked speed and had spelling difficulties, the children were assisted by sixth-grade students acting as secretaries. Both grades benefited from this experience. Having grown more confident, the second-graders began writing on their own, and the sixth-graders became more aware of correct spelling and sentence structure. (SW)
