PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Great for visual-spatial learners, nonverbal ability, ELL, and fun for all!

Search the keyword creativity and you’ll find a flash flood of hits—many of them explaining how creativity can be harnessed to increase production, innovation, and yield bigger profits. It’s not hard to imagine why creativity and innovation is a key component to 21st Century Learning.

But wait . . . I need creativity in my classroom—today. Well, here you go . . .

In the creativity portion of the Doodles Writing and Creativity Adventure, students use imagination and multiple perspectives to transform doodles into pictures. It’s not only fun but also stretches a student’s creative skills through the creative components of flexibility and originality.

21st Century Learners need purposeful creativity in order to be productive citizens, and the narrative writing activity which follows provides a productive purpose for our doodle creativity—straight out of Common Core Standards. Students provide elaboration to one of their doodle creatures, give it a personality, and take it on a narrative writing adventure.

Our reluctant writers will be motivated as they make visual-language connections through pre-writing character development and narrative sequence graphic organizers.

Finally, students finish with more fun and hands-on challenge as they create a 3D art piece in the stuffed doodle activity.
In this lesson, you get step-by-step teacher instructions, two ready-to-print graphic organizers, ready-to-print themed writing paper, and student sample work.

Note: This lesson does not include a grading rubric for narrative writing. Individual grade level, school, district, and state narrative writing grading rubrics are applicable to this writing activity.
