Roald Dahl Projects and Lesson Plan Ideas
Ideas for reading projects, creative writing assignments, and bulletin board displays based on Roald Dahl's books.
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.
"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...
These fox shaped cookies are adorable and a fun treat to make for children after they have read "Fantastic Mr. Fox" by Roald Dahl.
From Zoe's Lunchbox created this lunch based on some of Roald Dahl's most popular books: wormy spaghetti with gummy worms (The Twits), chicken (Fantastic Mr. Fox), sharp cheddar cheese letters, peach slices (James & The Giant Peach), peas (The Witches), and cashews, butterscotch, and chocolate chips (Charlie & The Chocolate Factory) all in our giraffe lunch box (The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me).
"The Enormous Crocodile" was the first book which children’s author Roald Dahl and illustrator Quentin Blake worked on together. The two soon became friends, cementing one of the most eye-catching and distinctive collaborations in children’s literature.

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."
