Celebrating Creativity

We need kids to be able to think for themselves, problem solve and not search for people to give them answers or the easy way out. Some kids find success in an environment that allows them to rote learn, but how is this success measured? Test scores? Some kids struggle in the same environment because they are being taught one way to learn.

By providing opportunities for kids to be creative in their learning, I have found that engagement and therefore interest in their learning increases. This is also evident in the work they proudly submit. I am lucky to work at a school that allows if not encourages creativity being used in the classroom. The skills the students develop and learn throughout any creative project will be useful skills they can utilise in the future.
