English Class fourth graders, under the direction of their English teacher, Mr. Gregg, have started reading The Twits by Roald Dahl. It’s an excellent, fun book full of new adjectives and colourful language. The first few chapters introduce us to Mr. and Mrs. Twit, two brilliantly despicable characters who are constantly playing mean tricks on one another.
Mr. Twit has a filthy beard full of dirty, disgusting things. The 4EN class designed their own disgusting beards full of things we could describe together using rich, imaginative language. The book is a great way to start the year and get our creative language juices flowing!
