I have prepared Resource Booklets for each of my books to aid teachers in providing backgrounds and activities for their students. These booklets are provided in Adobe PDF format for you to download and use. If you do not have the Adobe PDF Reader installed on your computer it is available free of charge from Adobe.
Here are some exercises that can be used to generate ideas for creative writing. I used these in one of my sessions at the Package Your Imagination Conference organized by the Canadian Society of Children's Authors, Illustrators and Performers.
