What better way to get kids excited about books and research, than by celebrating research all month! Using picture books to help students become better writers and writers to become better researchers using mentor texts. Reading for Research Month provides a month long intensive with guest bloggers to help you do just that! The daily presenters are librarians, teachers, and authors or illustrators. The calendar and more information is provided in the link above.
The super fantastic line-up?
