2. DREAMS: A popular topic for children duringGK2 Morning MeetingAugust 2012 Riley I had a dream. I loved my dream. I had a dream, then there was a place and then I did a show for everybody. Then I disappeared into the bed and I was home. I loved that dream! It was a fun dream because I loved it so much! Isaac Last night, I dreamed that I was already inside a clock and a flower. I imagined that. Tae My dream was about the police that came and locked me in jail. It looked like a rectangle. 3. * 4. *RILEY It looks like a star.ISAAC It looks like a bee flower.BENNOAH It looks like a bee house.*JACOB Its a spider web. It looks like it has a spider on it.

And, I did not have a dream catcher. ISAAC I was on a plane and the plane got shot. Ilanded on a flag and the flag broke and I imagined that Idied. I fell from the tree and it broke. So, I landed on a trampoline and bonked up to space and landed in an alien bucket. I met the aliens and they were kind of silly.
