On Monday & Tuesday, November 21st & 22nd, 4C students went into 5 primary classrooms to perform their BFG Readers' Theater. They did a GREAT job! The Readers' Theater skits focused on the part of the book where the BFG is explaining "Dream Catching" to Sophie.

We are currently reading The BFG by Roald Dahl. It is an incredible and fun book! In the story, the BFG (Big Friendly Giant) is a dream-catching giant who goes to Dream Country to catch dreams. He catches them by using a butterfly net (as well as his enormous ears to actually HEAR the dreams). The two types of dreams that he catches are trogglehumpers (nightmares - which he catches so they can never get out) and golden phizzwizards (GOOD DREAMS!) He then travels all over the world "delivering" these golden phizzwizards to children. He does this by blowing them through windows with a special trumpet-like instrument while children are sound asleep at night. 4C students were lucky enough to get to travel to Dream Country (aka - the playground) and catch their own golden phizzwizards! Check them out! I would love for any of these dreams to be blown through my window while I was sleeping!!!
I am the wealthiest person in the world! I will use most of my money to buy stuff for poor people and people who need money to pay off loans. I will have $900,000,000,000,000,000,000! There will be NO MORE POOR PEOPLE!
I will go horseback riding in a show and win $1,000,000. Then I will buy 600 horses and win $1,000,000 every show. I will have every color, breed, and size of horse.
What an invention! CLICK-CLACK! RING RING! It’s finished! I made an invention that will end world hunger! The President says it works! I get $100,000,000 and a ticket to a Taylor Swift concert. Yes!
I’d be a princess, and I’d get whatever I want. I can rule the world, and it will be fun!
