PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Creative Thinking in the Classroom!

Did you know that creativity is a skill that can be taught and learned, just like reading and math? Yes, for real!! :-) Through exposure, experience, and practice, creative thinking is a skill anyone can cultivate.

Not only is creative thinking FUN, but it is also important! Divergent thinking increases a student’s desire to learn and supports his/her intellectual development. When we encourage creative thinking, we promote student engagement, motivation, and love for learning.

Paul Torrance, who is frequently referred to as the “Father of Creativity,” identified four key features of creativity:
- fluency
- flexibility
- originality
- elaboration
The materials in this download look closely at each of the four elements and provide a wide variety of ideas, activities, and no-prep printables for you to use with your class!

This resource includes:
- 6 pages of Teacher Tools with detailed explanations and implementation ideas
- Four 8 ½ x 11 posters (fluency, flexibility, originality, elaboration)
- 10 No-Prep Printable Activities

This packet is a perfect, easy way to promote creative thinking in your classroom! Activities are ready to print and go; no teacher prep required!

Printable Activities can be used as:
- Bell Ringers
- centers/stations
- Anchor activities
- partner/cooperative group assignments
- enrichment for fast finishers

Be sure to check out the preview to see all that is included. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions! I want you to be 1,000% happy with your purchase!
