Monday 5 October is World Teachers’ Day! In the lead-up to this and the first day of Term 4, we’d like to send a huge thanks to all the teachers who bring their passion and dedication to school each day. We thought we’d celebrate by sharing some creative writing ideas for the first week back after the school holidays.
Below are some interesting ways to take the classic question, “What did you do on the holidays?” and turn it into a piece of creative writing!
Describe a memory of your holidays using every sense except sight!
I want to smell the cookies you baked, feel the warmth of the afternoon sun, or hear the sound of your family dinner!
Don't tell me about your holidays; let me experience them for myself!
Ordinary to Extraordinary!
Take the most boring day of your holidays and change one thing that instantly makes it extraordinary!
It might be that you see giraffes dancing outside your window, or you have a surprise visitor who has never heard of Zoom or Vegemite.
This is a wonderful opportunity to remind students that story ideas can be found all around them.
Where young writers (and some older ones) write.
