Supporting, Valuing, and Inspiring Young Children’s Creative Thinking
by Abigail Flesch Connors
Young children are naturally creative, but teachers need to support this natural creativity in order for it to develop and grow. Teaching Creativity provides fun new ideas that encourage the development of children’s creative-thinking skills. These easy, practical, classroom-tested (Pre-K - grade 2) strategies increase children’s confidence as creative thinkers, building the foundation for a lifelong habit of creative thinking.
Also included are ways for teachers to ensure their classrooms promote a climate of respect and encouragement so children feel safe in sharing their ideas with others.
Teaching Creativity is a must-have resource for teachers who are dedicated to nurturing their students’ creative-thinking skills.
