Ten Ways to Use Drama to Develop Writing Skills

Creative drama can have a positive impact on children’s writing skills. Drama games and activities provide our children with a wealth of make believe experiences they will want to write about and structured drama techniques help them focus on the writing skills they need.

  • Using role play to develop contexts for writing
  • Using drama techniques to deepen the children’s understanding of a topic
  • Storytelling techniques are a great stimulus to writing
