Roald Dahl Projects and Lesson Plan Ideas

Ideas for reading projects, creative writing assignments, and bulletin board displays based on Roald Dahl's books.

Dressing up for Roald Dahl Day: I'm dressed as Willy Wonka and the girls have dressed up as an Oompa Loompa and Mike Teevee.

This is a cute and colorful bulletin board display idea to use for Roald Dahl's book The Enormous Crocodile. Cut out pictures of your students (like in this photo example) and place them inside the Enormous Crocodile's mouth.

ESIO TROT Book Cover: Have your students design a turtle book cover. I have my students write a "YRAMMUS" (summary backwards) inside their booklets because ESIO TROT is tortoise spelled backwards. First students write their summaries on a rough draft paper, and then they copy it backwards into their turtle booklets.

Using a "BFG + Dream Jars" (write titles of favorite books on the jars) is a creative idea for designing a reading corner in your classroom.

"A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely." ~ Roald Dahl from The Twits Download a FREE one page poster for this quote on www.uniqueteachin...

When my mother read "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" to me when I was a child (back in 1972!), this was the book cover. Quentin Blake's illustrations are now featured in most of Roald Dahl's books and book covers. Their collaboration began in 1977 with "The Enormous Crocodile."
