English Language Arts Addison Tales

What it is: Addison Tales is an interesting interactive


site that asks your students to contribute content. This
ongoing competition challenges students to invent an
imaginative story character for Addison's Tales. When
students visit the site, they will be introduced to Mr.
Cornelius Addison. f students click on the sparkly
stars, they can visit the story's characters. When
students click on Mr. Cornelius Addison, they will be
taken to a story called "The Dream. The story is about
Mack's wild and imaginative store where he sells
characters. The story urges students to add characters
to the store and then to "trap their characters inside
finished stories so that they don't just remain figments
of the imagination. When students create their own
characters, they make them "real like the solid
characters in the cottage that can be discovered inside
the apps that are available from Addison tales in the
app store. The challenge is for students to write and
draw interesting characters. http://addisonstales.com/ TJ
