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 time-saving seasonal products that will 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 exclusive freebies for my newsletter subscribers. Sign up for Candler's Classroom Connections to gain access to that page.

How to Teach Kids to Love Poetry (Even If You Don't) - Free Webinar from Laura Candler

Why wait until April to teach poetry? Fall is the perfect time because then your students can enjoy poetry all year long! In this webinar, I walk you through a complete poetry unit, step-by-step. After you implement these lessons, you'll be amazed at how quickly your students are able to read, write, and understand poetry... and even more surprised to discover how much your students come to love poetry, too! These lessons are best for upper elementary students, but many can be adapted for other ages. Even if you haven't enjoyed teaching poetry in the past, you might find yourself looking forward to your next poetry unit! Download the free webinar handouts here, and then click HERE to register for the replay.
