Writer's block is real. Or at least sometimes it feels that way, right? When your students write, they can be put under some constraints, with pressure to write a certain amount a certain way. What happens when they lose motivation or creativity?
As a teacher, you have the task of breaking students out of their writer's block! What a tough challenge! While it's a daunting task, there are so many ways to go about it.
You can try sensory activities, mindfulness exercises, games, and stream of consciousness free writes. Whatever you choose, just know that you and your students are never going to be stuck with writer's block forever. Sometimes a simple change of scenery can break that block.
