A little reluctant 2nd grade reader that I work with was exceptionally proud of a t-shirt his Mom had brought back for him from a trip. He happily told me all about it with puffed chest so I could see it clearly. He was so enthused that it prompted me to extend his interest by photocopying the shirt and then writing a short story with his ideas. It was simple to lay the shirt on the Xerox machine, adjust the darkness and copy his raccoon shirt. He read his story to his class and handed out copies of his shirt for them to color.
