Weaving dreams

Dec. 11, 2018 | Form IV English students made dreamcatchers this morning!

Last month, Mrs. Carey's students read Cherie Dimaline's The Marrow Thieves, using it as an opportunity to expand their literary horizons and learn about North America's Aboriginal people. Continuing on this subject, students crafted their own dreamcatchers during their class today. Some students found greater success than others in the quest to tame their tangled twine, but everyone embraced the occasion to personalize their designs with colourful string, accessories, and various weaving patterns. The activity served as both a relief from exam stress and as a jumping off point for their next assignment: writing poetry about dreams.
