Product Description
The brain needs stretching activities just like the body does. This list has been expanded to 50 brief writing ideas so Middle School and High School students can get their creative juices flowing.

They are meant for a 5-10 minute writing session at the beginning of class while the teacher takes role and the students settle into learning.

Although I begin my creative writing classes with this activity, teachers should use it with their English classes to help the students exercise their thinking muscles.

Depending on the topic, give only five to ten minutes for them to write before having students share their responses with the class. The purpose is for the students to be spontaneous and not to over think the topic given them.

Teacher Notes are included along with CC standards and Bloom's Taxonomy higher-level thinking suggestions.
