After several years in the classroom, I realized that my students needed instruction on HOW to be kind, respectful, and all the things I was asking them to be. I developed these units to support teachers in teaching and rewarding great character in the classroom! Building a classroom community is one of the most important things teachers can do and it greatly impacts our students academically! This unit on CREATIVITY
is part of a year-long curriculum for teaching students how to have great character! However, this unit could also be used as a stand-alone resource for teaching all about being creativity in the classroom. :)
This unit is part of a BUNDLE that includes TEN units on character education at a discounted price.
Lesson 1-What Does Creativity Mean?
Your class will discuss what it means to "create" and be "creative" and make a class anchor chart about what creativity means. Then students will work to turn doodles into something amazing! Finally students will take a few minutes to draw and write about creativity.
Lesson 2-What If We Don't Feel Creative?
After reading one of my favorite picture books about creativity, your students will work to create their own masterpiece!
Lesson 3-What Are The Types of Creativity?
Your class will discuss types of creativity like artistic, musical, building, problem solving, writing, dancing, baking, or numbers/logic. Students will graph what kind of creative they think they are and write about it.
Lesson 4-How Can We Think Creatively?
In this lesson, you will discuss how creatively can help us in all areas of our life. Your students will think creatively about math, writing, and grammar.
