What Is Creative Writing?

Creative writing doesn't mean a physically or aesthetically appealing form of writing, such as font or calligraphy. Instead, it entails the ability of people to express their ideologies and thoughts in a creative, and imaginative way. Children are naturally creative and curious; however, studies show that creativity in children can decline as early as age five.

Helping your child discover a love for creative writing allows them to express their feelings, helps them to clarify their own ideas and beliefs, and discover what they know or think about a topic. It encourages them to think outside the box and gives them an enormous confidence boost. Not only does this improve their communication skills, but also forms the foundation for their academics.

The Module

In this module, the emphasis lies on improving the child’s overall written grip on language and enhancing the ability to construct better words and longer sentences. Correct Grammar is the basis of mastering a language well. Once a child has a strong grip on the Grammar rules, they can write effectively and with ease, learning to experiment with new words.

The program offers activities to improve the child’s grammar and their ability to use the written word. The course focuses on enhancing written command over language via special Creative Writing techniques. Imaginative techniques help the child frame their creative thoughts into neat, clear sentences.  In this course, we lay the foundations of grammar – i.e. parts of speech, sentence fundamentals, common mistakes in grammar and sentence formation etc.

Children are also encouraged to write in descriptive, narrative, factual and persuasive compositions, which allows them to explore the language, its structure, and the various ways it can be moulded in order to convey a meaningful and impactful message. Such activities also allow for personality development for kids, thus making them better communicators.
