In my Seasonal File Cabinet, you'll find free printables and teacher resources with active engagement teaching strategies to keep kids on task and learning during special times of the year. You'll also find seasonal products that will save you planning time and make it easy to implement the strategies.
If you followed a Pinterest link to this page, you might not find the item here if it's for a different season of the year. In that case, you can probably find it on Laura's Best Freebies, a page of my best freebies teachers. Sign up for Candler's Classroom Connections to gain access to that page.

My daughter Wendy is a talented artist who has a TeachersPayTeachers store called Digital Classroom Clipart. I know that a lot of teachers like to create their own classroom awards at the end of the year, so I suggested that she create some Award Clipart. She created a beautiful collection of ribbons and trophies that you can purchase from her store and customize with your own words. Please follow Wendy's store so you'll be notified when she adds new items.

Did you miss my poetry webinar, How to Teach Kids to Love Poetry (Even If You Don't)? No worries because I've added the webinar recording and the free resources to my Poetry Bundle.
Check out the feedback from happy teachers like Kelly who wrote, "Your webinar inspired me to update my poetry unit. Your bundle is exactly what I needed to help me with those students who are the grumblers. Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and experience!!! LOVE THIS BUNDLE!!!"
