Welcome to the Writing folder of Laura Candler's online file cabinet! On this page you'll find a variety of writing prompts and other files related to writing instruction. Most of these activities are free and don't include complete directions; if you are interested in writing lessons that include complete directions and printables, please check out the resources in my TpT store.

Free Webinar: How to Teach Poetry Sign Up for the Replay Now!
April is Poetry Month, so it's the perfect time to teach poetry. After implementing these strategies, 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! Most of the activities were designed for upper elementary students, but many can be adapted for younger or older students. Even if you haven't enjoyed teaching poetry in the past, you might find yourself looking forward to your next poetry unit! The live webinar is over; click HERE for the replay!
