I have tried to put more focus on creativity in my 2nd grade classroom.
We brainstormed what it means to be creative and the students did very well describing what it means to be creative. They said creativity means putting things together, building things, if you mess up you can make something new out of it, doing things you haven't done before, using different things, and making something new.
I've tried to have a Creative center for the students to participate in once a week.
I am still trying to come up with 4-5 things that sum up what it means to be creative and haven't settled in on them.
I am starting with the assumptions that everyone is creative and people must be creative to succeed.
Here are some links that I have found to be helpful...
