The Things You Can Read welcomes you and thanks you for your readership. We, here at The Things You Can Read, ask your help, if you visit our site regularly, please follow us either via email or Google Friend Connect.  Launched on June 7, 2012, our site has already attracted a great deal of attention.  One of the goals of the site is to feature reviews of Children's Picture Books, Young Adult novels and Adult Literary Fiction/Nonfiction.  A second goal for the blog is to be a resource for teachers of English and writing--with examples of student created writing, writing tips, resource links, and the opportunity to pick the brain of a seasoned English teacher.  To spice things up...every now and then, we'll also include random quotes and thoughts on education and life in general, but our ultimate goal is to reach out into the blogosphere and be a "Book Whisperer" and "Writing Whisperer" to children and adults of all ages.   Thank you for your readership.  Here is to a lifetime filled with reading and writing.

Pi Day Poetry: Piakus

View the video and follow the directions to create your Pi Poem.  Use as much of Pi or as little as you like.  If you are writing a poem for Mrs. White's English class the theme of your Piaku is the Titanic and you need to use at least the first 12 digits of Pi.   Have fun!


Weeping in the Deep

Mighty ship
Hidden in dark
Weeping in the deep
Hopes and dreams dead with those asunder
Forever in shadows
Its former self
Gone with waves
A Tale of heaven
Turned into a story of forboding hell

By T.W.

The Sinking

Cold outside and
Turning to its side
Sinking into the freezing water
She's gone
Some people in lifeboats
Some people have drowned
Bright lights shine
On the ocean blue
Carpathia come to the rescue

By T.T.
