Last month, I had a guest post on the fabulous Melissa Stewart’s blog. Do you know Melissa? If you teach any nonfiction reading or writing in your classroom, Melissa is somebody you should be reading (her children’s books, her blog, and her professional books). She’s doing a series of posts by children’s writers called “My Favorite Research Story.” In my post, I talk about how I researched Snowman-Cold=Puddle: Spring Equations. Research is tricky when you hate interviewing people and are on a limited budget. The techniques I share here would be easy for students to use. Enjoy!
[My Classroom Connections posts share a way to connect one of my books or poems to a classroom topic–often something timely that you might be covering in the next month or so. Please share this post if you have educator friends who might be interested–thanks!]
