Despite the challenges that young age presented to creative writing and additional problems associated with the expression of a foreign language school, the texts indicate that nine- and ten-years students are capable of personal and social creativity and divergent thinking; that, in creating suitable conditions during the learning process, they can understand abstract concepts; to overcome his childhood egocentricity and show empathy and compassion; and last but not least, they are capable of poetic expression. All this makes the texts created significant as pedagogical, and the linguistic point of view.
