School Library Journal’s Myra Zarnowksi, Marc Aronson, and Mary Ann Cappiello serve up some common core nonfiction mentor texts in an article. Here Come the Humpbacks is included, hooray! This year it’s been productive using the book with kids to get them writing. Apparently a lot of what I do in presentations and books ties in with common core. Educators are cluing me in on how how it all dovetails. Feel free to contact me and share your wisdom. I could use links to anything you do with my books or see in my books that ties in well with common core. I would like to share general common core/nonfiction resources with educators I meet at conferences, school visits, and so on. This year I’m speaking a lot at STEM events. The more quality books/resources that reach our children’s minds, the better! As always, INK, .inkrethinkblogspot.com is a font of inspiration for nonfiction and the writing process. I’m not blogging on there this year but did so in previous years.
