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.

Teaching Idea: Charcter Tees

Have you tried having students design "Character Tees"? Here is how it works.  Cut out tee-shirts out of poster board or bulletin board paper, and then have students come up with words and images that represent a character from a class novel.   Here is the catch, no character names may appear on the "Character Tee".  Afterwards, display them and have a guessing contest to see who can correctly identify which tee's belong to which character. Check out Scholastic's website for reproducables to use with this activity.  Good luck, and let us know how it works out for you

Happy Reading!
