Ideas for James and the Giant Peach
Old 04-10-2008, 03:23 PM
 

You could get a peach for each pair of students. Then do a creative writing activity on how the peach looks, smells. Maybe you can have some cut up so that they can taste the peach. Something like a sensory poem even. Then have them think about what they would do if the peach became the biggest peach they'd ever seen.

I love this story and I've read it to my class and they really enjoyed listening to it. You can also watch the movie after you've read the book and compare them. Another idea, you could get a cut out of a peach and maybe some peach color felt or fuzzy material and make a book jacket in the shape of the peach then as you read create the other characters and put them on their peach. Just some ideas.
