Good WAGOLLs (what a good one looks like) or model texts aren’t easy to come by. Teachers often end up writing their own or using one from a text book. It’s time to put a stop to that. On Pobble, you’ll find thousands of ‘real-life’ examples of children’s writing. Over 100,000 of them!

That’s a bank of 100,000 pieces of writing that can be used for teaching ideas, guided reading, ‘up-levelling’, topic research and ‘WAGOLLs’. And best of all, it’s free to access!

All the model texts on Pobble are categorized into age group, genre and topic, effectively making it a search engine of children’s writing.
