Today, although the importance of creative writing is emphasized in our society as ‘where dreams are sold and commercialized,’ creative writing and oral storytelling are regarded as challenging tasks for children. Therefore, elementary education should be the starting point to help children to have a systematic understanding of literature with a voluntary and independent attitude, to express their emotions and thoughts creatively, and to systematically produce the story based on the structure and development of the story. In this context, the purpose of this study is to provide precise directions for contents development, which allows children to actively understand the story structure elements and recreate stories. The research questions focus on how we can develop creative writing educational contents using story-retelling and the effectiveness of the contents. The effectiveness of the developed contents was verified through pilot tests among grade 3-4 elementary students. Results show that the contents successfully played a role as an interesting tool for creative writing, and provided a framework for creative writing allowing participants to have a better understanding on story structure and elements, and the experience of creating a story on their own. In conclusion, the effectiveness of the educational contents to learners was verified.
