Happy Birthday Roald Dahl!

The TwitsToday is Roald Dahl's birthday!  To celebrate, my classroom is embarking on an author study.  I will be reading The Twits as a read aloud during homeroom.  Each of my students picked one of Dahl's books to read.  We have quite the aray of books!  At the end of the month, each student will present a book report to the class on their choice.  Some of the kids picked books that have been transformed on the big screen... we will be watching the movies after the book reports are completed, then discuss the differences and similarties between movie and book.  Who was a better Willy Wonka?  Gene Wilder or Johnny Depp?  The decision will be up to the classroom!  I'm quite excited about our author study- this is my favorite author study, and I look forward to September every year!
