Use Past Experiences, o Use a memoir or biography based assignment that gets students excited about.
writing Combine the project with an art lesson asking students to include. photographs or drawings of their past experiences Base the size of the project on. the age of the students asking for a one page report from younger students and. longer papers from older kids Brainstorm the project in class asking the students. to record the top five moments of their lives and expand those moments into small. stories for the finished book,Humorous Writing, o If you want your kids interested in writing then opt for writing assignments that. have a humorous or funny slant Give your students a short prompt and ask them to. write a story based on that prompt For example have the students write a story on. what they would do if they found a bag of money or gold on the way home from. school With older students use the prompt as inspiration for short stories not. based on themselves Give your students a short opening sentence that has no. ending and ask for a story that finishes the sentence For example tell the students. I never believed that unicorns existed until and ask them to finish the story.

Writing Exercises Poetry, The list of writing exercises for poetry and all genres really is exhaustive Here are. some of the most successful, o Translation exercise Bring in a poem in a language unfamiliar to your students. Without giving them any ideas about the poem s content have them translate the. poem by mimicking the lines and line integrity the spacing of the poem In terms of. language the students may do their best to divine subject matter and imagery The. result is a selection of poetry from students that is wildly different in focus but. which holds the original shape of the poem When the exercise is completed read. the original out loud Occasionally students will happen upon the actual subject. matter so do not let that surprise you A poem in German about a deer has yielded. for instance five poems about deer in a class of 12 The object of the exercise is to. examine pacing and tone, o Found poetry exercise Find an old book and select a page of text Write a poem.
using only the specific lexicon on that page Some poets choose to mark out words. with a marker leaving behind words that form an unexpected poem This exercise is. particularly useful when discussing language as so many of us call upon the same. vocabulary over and over again Borrowing language pushes writers outside of their. own self imposed limitations, o Photograph exercise Hand out the same photograph or image that features at. least two people to all students and have them write a poem based on the picture. before them Encourage varied approaches first person point of view dialogue. etc but limit the length Restrict space to an index card or drawn square that is the. same size as the photograph Have students read their poems out loud one after.
