Today Roald Dahl would have turned 100 years old. We kicked off the celebration yesterday in the library listening to a passage from The Twits and checked out his books. Thank you to Mrs. Feller for getting the week started right. Today we watched some segments from past celebrations and did some project to go with the videos. See the links below:
Of course we also ate candy and read from The Witches. Then we drew Willy Wonka with Quentin Blake and created a new sweet for the chocolate factory.
We will continue to celebrate this week watching some clips from the 100th anniversary video and so some more activities this week. It is not everyday that an author comes along who changes children's literature in such a huge way. I am happy to spend time with my kids honoring such a great author!
