Do you have students who shut down instantly when they see a sheet of paper in front of them? I do! This story lays out the expectations that every child who comes to school is expected to write at some point during the day whether is just letters or more complex things like stories and larger assignments.
Students refuse to write for various reasons: their hand is hurts, they don't know what to write, they can't spell, they don't know the answer, they writing is boring, etc. This story addresses all of these factors and provides alternate behaviors like: asking for a break, using visuals (see Opinion writing, Fiction writing, Personal Narratives, Abbreviations, etc), using special tools (slanted board, weighted pencil, weighted wrist band, keyboard, pencil/pen with special topper, etc), extended time, or teacher's help.
The story comes with a visual that can be displayed at the writing station or anywhere in the room for a quick reminder that students have "helpers" when they get stuck!
