|Have a "The Witches" Party to Celebrate Roald Dahl Day or Halloween!|
The Witches is an award-winning story by Roald Dahl about a boy, his grandmother, and a hotel full of witches.
"This is not a fairy tale. This is about real witches."
|Books by Roald Dahl include The Witches and James and the Giant Peach.|
After we watched the movie, we visited the Roald Dahl website and chose some fun ideas for lessons. We made posters that explain how to spot a witch. Beware! They are everywhere.
We have a fun idea to make human masks!
- Copy a photo of someone in the classroom or house, paste it to tag board, and then decorate it with markers or colored pencils. When done, cut out, poke holes in the ears, tie an elastic string through each hole, and wear it!
- To make it more fun, also make a witch mask and wear it underneath your human mask. Tee Hee! Now, that's fun!
