September's Free Learning Activity : "Dreams and Wishes"

Grade Level: 3
Number of People: 2
Time: 15 minutes
Materials: Magazines, scissors, paste, construction paper or tag-board

Description:
We all have dreams about what we want to have, do, or be. Let you child create a "dream board" around something he would like to have or do. Choose magazines from which he can cut out pictures of his interests and dreams. Paste the pictures on construction paper or tag-board. Place the dream board in a place he can see it. Now that he has done the research, it is time to talk about how he plan to achieve his dreams.

Variations:
Perhaps he would like to have a bicycle or a pair of special shoes. Ask him to find the pictures and then articles and other information so he can become the expert on the things he wants and why he want them.
