As the rabbit’s hole dropped, Alice fell into the hole. She came upon a three legged table. She drank the magical potion. It changed her into the size of a doll. She ate a magical chocolate there. Later she grew up to her original size. Alice could not answer the hare’s ambiguous puzzle. Soon the Queen called Alice to play croquet with her. But Alice could not win. So the Queen ordered to take off Alice’s head. Then Alice’s sister told her to wake up. It is all nothing but a dream. As it is a dream, she overcomes those challenges.
2. Have you ever had a strange dream? Share your dream in the class.
I am going to tell you about my strange dream. Yesterday I went to bed and everything was calm. I fell asleep and in a moment I appeared in blackness. I called if someone could hear me but no one answered. I walked and walked until I saw a light. I went towards it and again I appeared in a forest with the bird singing and dancing. I listened to it, but then in a moment all went into flames. A voice screamed so loud that I fell down. I stood up and ran into the light. Again and again I appeared in a strange place. Now I was in a cup filled with coffee. I tried to get out but I couldn’t. Then I appeared in the blackness again and I went into a green light. Suddenly I was in a bathtub filled with ducks. I scratched my head and asked myself how this was possible. Then I woke up. I was all sweaty and I laughed quietly to myself.
