Teaching creative writing is easy for parents and fun for kids when you use the interactive Bardsy Homeschool writing curriculum that expertly utilizes AI!
Creative writing is essentially the written form of storytelling. Are your kids good storytellers? How are their creative writing skills? Did you know that creative writing helps to improve your child’s math and science scores through improved pattern recognition, construction and extension skills. Storytelling also improves your child’s ability to integrate new material and think critically. Did you know all that? I certainly didn’t! But, when I first discovered this information, I could immediately identify and attest to it with my own children.
My older set of twin boys are wonderful storytellers and they enjoy creative writing. In fact, one of them is currently pondering the topic of a book he hopes to write. Ironically, both boys who excel in creative writing are both very academically advanced.
However, I’m slightly embarrassed to admit that with my younger set of twin boys, creative writing took a back seat to their other academic subjects. Truthfully, it wasn’t even in the back seat; we stopped doing creative writing quite awhile back…and it shows, big time!
I didn’t make the correlation until I read about the importance of creative writing and I truly believe that it could be part of the reason why my younger boys struggle more academically than my older boys.
But, that’s the great thing about homeschooling. We can just turn around and pick it back up, creative writing, that is! And, that’s what we are doing! How about you? Have you inadvertently skipped over creative writing in your homeschool? Or, perhaps you’re not quite sure how to go about teaching it.
How to Teach Creative Writing
Convinced that creative writing is needed in your homeschool, but stumped with how to actually incorporate it? Bardsy Homeschool makes teaching creative writing not only easy for parents but fun and engaging for the kids through the use of AI (artificial intelligence)!
Bardsy Homeschool is “your gateway to better storytelling.” Whether your child is an eager writer or a reluctant writer, Bardsy Homeschool provides flexible curriculum, interactive resources, and professional guidance so that you can help your learner unlock their creative writing / storytelling potential!
A Different Type of Homeschool Writing Program
As a 10+ year homeschooler, I’ve seen my fair share of homeschool writing curricula. And, I can tell you that Bardsy Homeschool is by far the most innovative and technologically advanced homeschool writing program I’ve seen! They’ve created two really cool interactive tools that take creative writing to a whole new level!
The Bardsy Story Spinner is designed to help students with the first steps of the creative writing process – coming up with an idea of what to write. Simply hit “Spin” and students will be presented with character, world, and theme ideas. It’s a great way to help get those creative juices flowing!
The other super cool tool I want to tell you about is the Prospero, Bardsy’s AI (artificial intelligence) writing helper. This amazing writing wizard helps to organize and develop the different elements of your child’s story. Prospero is essentially your child’s personal writing coach, always providing choices about what to do next in the writing process.
With these remarkable, interactive, creative writing tools and the entire suite of Bardsy Homeschool materials, videos, resources, and printables, parents are 100% equipped to incorporate creative writing into their homeschool! Ready to get started?

“Bardsy Homeschool believes that creative writing supercharges every academic skill.
Storytelling isn’t extra-curricular, it’s trans-curricular. It not only bolsters your learner’s ability to absorb, process, retain and retrieve information across disciplines, it also increases their tenacity while tackling complex material, subject-specific vocabulary, and new concepts. Creative writing has even been proven to raise math and science performance.
The Bardsy Homeschool Method breaks storytelling down into two complementary steps: develop and assemble. This method is woven into our online tools to minimize struggle and make writing accessible and fun. Now, you can see this method in action with our online Super Character Toolkit.
