Riding on a Dragon:    That night I dreamed I was flying on the back of a dragon.

  1. Do you often remember your dreams?
  2. Do you have a dream that you repeatedly experience?
  3. Do you ever use day dreaming as a way to escape boring moments or difficult times?

Follow-Up Activity — Illustrate the Story

As you read the chapter, have students pick a sentence that they would like to illustrate with paints or markers. Perhaps they can sketch with pencils as you read. To motivate some, you may want to list a few excerpts on the chalkboard.
  • The moon rose — a silver sliver shaped like a little boat
  • We were twins, the moon sailing on the horizon and the little boat drifting along in the narrow canal
  • I rode on the winged beast's back all night
  • There was no moon to shed its light, and Heaven's net had pulled in all the stars except one
