Do you know Alice?

4th graders didn't know so much information about Lewis Carroll's famous story, Alice in Wonderland. So, we have introduced it in the english lessons briefly and children brought some books they had at home. They have been amazing because we could compare the same story in different styles. 

Also, in the oral activities, we tried to understand Alice:  it could be some periods of our lives, that we could feel different from people around us. Sometimes adults don't understand or listen to children. So, Alice dreams about an exciting and fascinating world where she feels a sense of freedoom. 

We have concluded that there are many things we can learn from the places that don't suit us and from the things that seem to make us uncomfortable and confused.
Also we have discovered some quotes from this story. Here you have the ones we liked:

Impossible things are possible.

Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here? - asked Alice
That depends on where you want to get to -said the cat.

Besides that, we have lessons on reading and pronuntiation and we could practice with the Caterpillar's chapter. If you click on the picture above you will listen to an adaptation we have made at school.

By the way, here you have a short piece of the movie: the White Queen making the shrunken potion.
