Begin Again with Wishes and Dreams

Use wish rocks as inspiration for the new school year.

I’ve collected wish rocks for as long as I can remember.  Finding a stone that has a line wrapped around it always makes me happy.  The smooth wish rocks discovered along beaches or lakes are the most exquisite.

Wish rocks also make good birthday presents.  In addition to making a wish while blowing out the candles, there is another wish to look forward to.  They are useful at the beginning of the school year too.  Give students wish rocks as a way to enhance creativity.  Ask students to think about what inspires/motivates them to learn.  Do they have goals to fulfill?  New things to try? Creative ideas and dreams? Have students elaborate upon their dreams/wishes in stories, journals, collages, mind-maps, or illustrations.
