Central Elementary Hosts Spoken Word Workshop to Spark Writing Creativity

On Dec. 5, Will Richey from JourneyManInk visited Central Elementary with musician Alejandro “JP” Perez. They spoke to 4th graders in the library about ‘feeling’ words and how they can use the power of words to express their feelings in writing and in speaking. Through song and word exercises, students talked about how different situations made them feel. The students were given time to write creative stories about an event they remembered, using techniques they learned through the workshop, and then volunteered to read their stories to the class.
