Descriptive ~ Creative workshop #1 – Follow up

Posted on

Yuvan’s first ever story on that picture in his own words…

Picture :- A woman and her cat  travelling in a Taxi

The story goes like..”a lady and her cat were travelling in a taxi and they were ”

Yuvan continues as

going to a movie called The transformers – dark of the Moon – in China. They both liked the movie and they couldn’t wait until their next movie on Wednesday..

The next day  they went to  the Merlion and had lot more  fun and went back home.

Two things to improve

His handwriting was not his usual good.. and he left too much space between the words.. which was result of hurrying up to finish writing what he thought…

He could fill in between the  incidents….next time may be…

But well done!!!!




Descriptive ~ Creative writing – Workshop -1

Posted on Updated on

I wanted to introduce creative writing and descriptive writing for a long time and I was really stuck on where to start it , though I had a pool of resources. It was all that I wanted  him to have an interest for creative and descriptive writing ,as well learn the basics well.

So finally I decided to start with something , in this case ,it was a picture of a horse ( as he always is fascinated by animals ) and I did ask him to write a few sentences about it. To my surprise he was able to write more than 10 sentences giving a lot of information by himself , with a little bit of leads with my questions like ” does he love horses ? has he been on a horse back ?  “.

Then he was more interested, excited to do one more .This is what I wanted …a curiosity and the interest about the work he always does 🙂

Then I wanted to try doing a story with a story starter and a picture , with lots of room for imagination … And to my surprise, he came up with a funny story which was creative enough for a 5 year old, attempting his first story..

It was a great productive and creative one plus hour of work.. we both enjoyed it and this creative writing workshop is set to continue at home step by step !!!!

First Kudos to Yuvan!!!!

Stencil Creativity

I am Right now amazed by Yuvan’s creativity and incorporation.

I have never thought of buying him a stencil set before except the stencil in a ruler he has !!!!yesterday The a small stencil came along as a free bee with Milk. And look at what he has done with it…

Stage 1

I am sure amazed by his creativity of using the stencil to show a race among the fishes /dolphins (to be precise) in the sea and he has incorporated a Ordinal number concept in it… i.e..1st , 2 nd…  and what the other fishes that are behind may be thinking / feeling… Awesome .. and he did it without any single tip from me… I am indeed feeling guilty Why didn’t I Buy him stencil’s before 😦 Time to buy now!!!!

Every time he keeps proving he is a very good visual leaner and an interpreter!!!!!He is  a conceptual person.. He needs to know things from scratch and if taught that way, he always grasps t quickly and he s confident that he knows a lot about it right from the scratch!!!!

Stage :2

He has here tried to color it.. but he made mistake of coloring the thought cloud after writing, but has tried to redo it outside.

To take note of his creativity or filling the theme are the cars on the road.. aeroplane in the sky…

I am really proud of you man!!!!Keep it going 🙂

A complete scene

Another recent causal work by him  –

This is another surprise  – Because he tried to draw the Indian flag – all by himself and he has tried to complete the scene,which I find it awesome !!!
