Imagine… (Part Two)

Imagine a day when ring pops are gigantic flowers with petals like glorious umbrellas. Clouds are disguised as cotton candy… – Kyle

Imagine a time when the dolphin’s jump brings rain back to the world. – Mehtab

Imagine a place with all different kinds of weather.  The sun is snowboarding in the powerful thunder and lightening. – Matthew

Imagine a place where sun is flower,  flower is sun.  Rain is candy, candy is rain.  Bees are like ladybugs, ladybugs are like bees… – Meena

More brilliance based on the books by Sarah L. Thomson and Rob Gonsalves. Personally, I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried; a bright-eyed bunch of first graders however, really have no problem letting the imaginations flow freely, wildly and with reckless abandon.

Getting the language out of them proved to be a trickier feat.  Once we worked on the idea of painting a picture with words, and edited the piece by ourselves and with the help of our peers – it started to come together.

A sun that snowboards?  Why not.

  1. These are stupendous! I love the Imagine a . . . books but have yet to use them with a class. Very impressive thinking and of course, beautiful art!
