Bonjour tout le monde!

Certains de mes étudiants ont travaillé à fabriquer des capteurs de rêves lors des dernières semaines et j’ai pensé que je devais partager notre projet avec vous. Avant de les faire, nous avons eu une petite discussion sur ce que les rêves sont et le genre de rêves que nous pouvons faire. J’ai expliqué que le travail d’un capteur de rêves est d’attraper tous ces mauvais rêves afin de ne faire que des beaux rêves la nuit.

La semaine prochaine, je vais étendre ce projet avec des dessins et de la peinture, mais pour l’instant je suis très heureuse de la façon dont tout s’est passé.

Passez une bonne soirée et n’oubliez pas,

Just Speak!

Hello Everyone!

Some of my students have been working on making dream catchers for the last few weeks and I thought that I’d share our project with you. Before making them we had a little chat about what dreams are and what kind of dreams we can have. I explained that a dream catcher’s job is to catch all of those bad dreams so that we only have sweet dreams at night.

Next week I’ll extend this project with some drawing and painting but for now I’m very happy with how everything turned out.

Have a nice evening and remember,

Just Speak!

Danielle
