Creative Writing Club In-Person
Join us for the month of October as we learn about different styles of poetry and each week create poems/stories of our own! Registration is for all 4 sessions.
Writing can be such a powerful, fun way to express yourself. Whether it be through writing stories, using pictures and text like in graphic novels, writing poetry (rhyming and non-rhyming/free verse) or a combination of them all - making something out of nothing, something that has never been created before - until you - is super cool! Join Mrs. Whiting each week for fun writing exercises used to create your own stories! Opportunities to share will be provided each week. Grades 3rd - 6th. Please register!
Week 1: Brief overview of poetry styles. Focus of this week will be on Haiku and Acrostics.
Week 2: Review Haiku and Acrostics. Focus of this week will be on rhyming and non-rhyming/free verse poetry.
Week 3: Review and create your own graphic novel!
Week 4: Review of different styles, online prompts and poetry books. Students choose their preferred style and continue creating.
ATTENTION: Teachers will be notified which students are registered for after-school programs. On the program date, students will gather in the WSS cafeteria where a Library staff member will pick them up at 3:10 p.m. All after school programs last 1 hour unless listed otherwise. Students may bring a snack to eat before the program begins.
