    Witches is a great book. I use it as a read aloud. As with all of Roald Dahl's books, the verbs are extremely vivid. This lends itself well to word walls or listing verbs that these can replace. Because his writing is so vivid it can also be used to teach visualization by reading a particularly vivid passage, ususally twice, and then having students draw the image that was created in their mind. I also use the book for journal writing such as describing the view in our classroom from the perspective of a mouse, explaining the best and worst part about being a mouse, designing an invention that helps a mouse live in a human's house, researching information about mice or creating your own adventure as a mouse in either your house or your classroom.
