The World of Roald Dahl

We’re diving into the world of Roald Dahl this week. Students are enjoying The BFG, James and Giant Peach, The Giraffe the Pelly and Me, and The Magic Finger. Dahl’s books are humorous, suspenseful, and vocabularyicious (Roald would like that word, don’t you think?)! As a read aloud, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is entertaining despite many of you having seen the movie. Once it’s completed, we will partake in some delicious Wonka candy and compare the book to the movie, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Also this week, we’re beginning to explore the world of bridges. We’ll explore different types of bridges and design and build our own models. Of course there will be a catch, which I will wait until later to share!
