Acrostic Response & Tell All About It: Disguising Writing Part 3


Listen to the full episode to hear two creative writing ideas:

For the last few weeks, I’ve been sharing creative writing ideas that get students writing and working on their literacy skills in a fun and non-threatening way. I love coming up with ways to disguise writing and have so many ideas, but narrowed it down to my final two that I’m going to share. Those two routines are Acrostic Response and Tell All About It.

If you’ve listened to Episodes 135 and Episode 134, you know that I’ll be breaking down the purpose, suggested time, general tips, examples, and ways to support or extend each routine. While these routines still work on literacy skills, what makes these two creative writing ideas unique is they touch on a genre and type of writing that usually doesn’t get a lot of love or attention. 

Since we’re at the end of the series, not only would I love to hear which creative writing ideas were your favorite, but samples of what your students have created! Share your hard work and dedication to these routines with me on Instagram or email me at!

In this episode on creative writing ideas, I share:
  • Two writing routines that are engaging and enjoyable
  • Each routine’s purpose, suggested time, tips and support ideas 
  • How to get these routines implemented in a matter of minutes 
  • Helpful tips to continue this work in your classroom
  • How to effectively use the Sampler Pack when using each routine
  • Ways to get students talking and interacting with their peers
