This paper presents 111 specific activities to help elementary students develop their creative writing skills. For each activity, suggestions are given for ways to begin and to develop the activity and for follow-up. Other sections of the paper discuss the type of classroom climate which is conducive to the development of creative writing skills, experiences which provide necessary background for creative writing, evaluating content, and helping students develop mechanical skills. Performance checklists are provided to be used as guides in assessing pupil progress in the development of correct spelling, usage, capitalization, punctuation, handwriting, and form. (GW)
