New T-Rex compare and contrast lesson plan

For the teachers out there, I've uploaded a new lesson plan to my website that teaches the concepts of comparing and contrasting by comparing T-Rex to people. It uses my latest picture book as a resource. Plus it has a cross-curriculum component that gives you the option to use comparing and contrasting to have students form or validate scientific hypotheses about T-Rex. Check it out at www.kenbakerbooks.com/lesson_plan_t-rex_compare_contrast.html

100 Scope Notes list of How-To PBs

Travis Jonker is a well-known and insightful elementary school librarian and blogger. Today he published a list of picture books coming out in 2019 that teach kids how to do certain things. It's a fun list of books, but there's one on the list in particular that's my favorite. Check it out. http://100scopenotes.com/2019/02/07/how-to-do-just-about-everything-in-2019/

Great writer's conference. Low cost. Great cause.

For any of you aspiring children's writers, Writing For Charity is a great low-cost writers' conference. And since all my author friends and I donate our time at the conference, all the proceeds go to a great cause to get books into the hands of underprivileged kids. 

It's on March 11 at Utah Valley University in Orem, Utah. Get more info at www.writingforcharity.org.
