We are Such Stuff As Dreams Are Made of

Spring is in the air! For our session before the spring break students worked on poems about dreams. Dreams for the future, or the wild and strange things that we see on the movie screen of our eyelids when we drift off to sleep at night. Zombies, talking animals, and flying through clouds were just a few of the things that we discussed before students started on their brainstorms. I hope you enjoy this week’s pieces!

A Therians Dream 

Alfie H. 

I want to have a dream 

that I am a happy Therian

outside with all my Therian 

friends and I was having

lots and lots of fun. I

am running through the woods

I’m making Therian masks

making tails and being me. But

then haters approach me. 

I fight them. 

I’m a happy Therian

until I wake up again I will

be a happy


I Dream

Ivan A. 

I dream that I was in a castle

I dream that I was in a random place with 

calm music, with flower around, everything was

really pink and calm music

I dream that I was in a room with closets around 

me and a monster was chasing me. 

I dream that I was rich swimming in a pool with 


I dream that I was watching a skeleton zombie

and was on a floating castle. 

8 Dreams and 2 Coming Dreams

Jayden R. 

I dream about huggy wuggy chasing me. 

I dream about my place being made very 

secure and going into the security office. 

I dream about making a place and a company 

named American Co. 

I dream about me as a monkey and escaping the ghosts. 

I dream about being on the clouds with kids.

I dream about 2 Lalaloopsy girls being bullied

and my GSA students were in Lalaloopsy land

and the 2 girls jump in a trampoline in a cylinder house. 

I dream about living in Hawaii or in the US Virgin Islands.

I dream about drinking Coke in Cuba.

I will dream about joining the Union on the Civil War.
