School House 7 – Creativity Week – Day 5

Posted at 6:25 PM, Jun 06, 2020

This is creativity day 5. Jay reminds us of the four creative thinking skills which are fluency, flexibility, originality, and elaboration. Today he focuses on elaboration or one’s ability to expand an idea by embellishing it with details. At home it would be great to create an elaboration key. Jay uses the example of giving kids the task of drawing your neighborhood playground. To help you help your students at home with elaboration, Jay Hall created an elaboration station. He explains the three ideas to work with your student at home.

1. Sensory details
2. Sentence expanders
3. Idea system
