Children already have a ton of great stories in their heads and it is extremely exciting to watch our young students learn how to formulate ideas through brainstorming , exploring different writing styles, and structuring their own creative stories. It is our job to give our students the tools to take those stories and ideas that they already have and organize them into great writing.
