Teachers, parents, kids, do you ever need to research something? I do, for my stories and for this blog. If you’re looking for sources, check out this link to my Pinterest boards https://www.pinterest.com/rindabeach/ All my posts are there. If you want a paper copy, just email. They’re all saved on my hard drive.
I have 30 pins or posts on my social studies board. Each pin tells which strand it covers. Some fit multiple strands. I used Ohio social studies standards, but they should fit other states too. Ohio strands include: Economic, Geography, Government, and History. The picture and the title will give you an idea into what the pin is about. Just scan to find what you need.
My science board has 16 pins. Most of them fall under life or earth/space science. I have one that fits under physical/ STEM science. Just scan the posts, I hope you’ll find something helpful and interesting.
I have 17 pins on my language arts board about things like editing, author visits, and story research.

To be a writer, you also have to be a reader. You read only new books, published in the last 2-3 years. It helps you understand what publishers want.
Agents are interested in what you read too. If you're interviewed, they’ll ask what you read. It tells them about you as a person, and as a writer.
If you’re looking for great books, please check out My Reads: Picture book reviews. These are my favorite new picture books. All 33 can be found at my library in Wapak. Where ever you live, I hope you’ll check them out too!

When I write, I can only have one voice in my head, mine. A little noise is fine. But too much, or worse yet, WORDS, and I must change rooms or pull out headphones. Then I can write on!
