Η ανάπτυξη του γραπτού λόγου είναι μία σύνθετη διαδικασία που απαιτεί χρόνο. Περιλαμβάνει την σωστή χρήση γραμματικής και λεξιλογίου, την επεξεργασία πληροφοριών και οργάνωσή τους για τη δυνατότητα απόδοσης νοήματος και την κατάλληλη χρήση σημείων στίξης. Ωστόσο, ο γραπτός λόγος εξακολουθεί να είναι και μία δυνατότητα δημιουργικής έκφρασης.
Οι μαθητές μπορούν να αποτυπώσουν τις ιδέες τους με φαντασία, να εκφράσουν τα συναισθήματα και τις σκέψεις τους μέσα από τους χαρακτήρες που επιλέγουν και να νιώσουν μεγάλη ικανοποίηση για τις ιστορίες που γράφουν.
Με αυτό τον τρόπο, οι μαθητές μπορούν να απολαύσουν τα οφέλη της δημιουργικής γραφής, ξεφεύγοντας από το μοτίβο ‘γράφω για τις εξετάσεις ή γράφω υποχρεωτικά για ένα συγκεκριμένο θέμα.
Παράλληλα, βελτιώνουν όλες τις δεξιότητες που χρειάζονται για να αναπτυχθεί σωστά ο γραπτός λόγος αλλά με περισσότερη ελευθερία και φαντασία.  Με αφορμή την σημερινή μέρα που είναι ” Tell a Story Day”, κάποιοι μαθητές αποφάσισαν να γράψουν τις  δικές τους ιστορίες!

It was midnight and Mali couldn’t sleep. She saw the light from the moon coming from her window. She saw herself in the mirror and she was yellow all over her body; it was like a yellow fire shield that formed a fox. She was scared because she had never seen anything like that before. It was like magic. She couldn’t understand why she had this fire shield. After a few hours, she felt asleep.
The next day she went to school and she wasn’t sure if anyone could see the fire shield so she called her boyfriend, Paul. Paul came near her and asked her what had happened. She explained to him but she wasn’t sure if he would believe her. He said to her that she was his girlfriend so he believed her. He asked her if she could show him the fire shield. Mali said that she didn’t know how to transform herself into a fire fox whenever she wanted. Paul, also, asked what time it was when she turned into a fire fox. She said that it was midnight so he understood that she could transform herself into this animal only at midnight.
They planned together to go to the woods at midnight. He saw her becoming a fire fox. Mali said that she would understand if he was scared and he didn’t want to be with her anymore but Paul kissed her on her soft, red lips and he told her that he would love her no matter what. She kissed him back and said to him “I love you”.
Suddenly, she turned into a fire fox again and started being angry with everything around her. Paul was trying to stop her while she was trying to hurt him. «Mali, stop! It’s me, Paul! » Paul was shouting to her over and over again. « You have to go away, please listen to me!!» Mali said to him. « I ‘m not going anywhere without you », Paul said. « I ‘m going to kill you if you don’t go, I can’t control it! » Mali said to him loudly. Paul was standing in front of her, saying again and again « I love you Mali! I can’t, can’t go! ». Then, Mali opened her mouth and bit him. Blood was coming now from Paul’s body.
After a few minutes, Mali was normal again. She ran to him and started crying while whispering « I’m sorry, I ‘m sorry please! Forgive me, please! » « Please, don’t cry, it’s not your fault! » Paul said. « Of course, it’s mine! I love you, please, don’t leave me! » Mali cried. But Paul didn’t answer…… Her eyes welled up with tears. The only thing that sounded in the woods was her cry for her dead boyfriend.
