The Fifth Graders have been reading The BFG by Roald Dahl. The story is about a friendly giant whose job is to catch dreams. He collects them from children and keeps his collection of Phizwizards (dreams) and Troglehumpers(nightmares) in his cave. He shares the good dreams and keeps the nightmares away.
Just before vacation, the class was half-way through the book and as an activity to tie in creative writing, the students developed their own dreams and dream jars. It was a great way to spend our afternoon before breaking away from the book while on April break.
