So, September 13 marks the official celebration of Roald Dahl day. And how will you celebrate? With chocolates? A giraffe? A BFG? A screening of Fantastic Mr. Fox? Well, whatever your plans, you will most definitely want to check out these websites.
http://www.roalddahl.com/. For example, under "treats" there are greeting cards, games and a quiz ("Find out whether you are a Roald expert or a Dahl dunce."). More treats are available from the download page, including teacher resources, posters and activity sheets.
http://www.roalddahlmuseum.org/default.aspx). From the "Discover Dahl" button in the left-hand menu, some online exhibits and downloads can be found. If you're working on writing with students in upper elementary or higher grades, you may want to download copies of early drafts of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for a real-life example of how editing works. At the very least, be sure to explore the museum via YouTube video.
