Do you read Emberley’s, Books Go Away Big Green Monster and Glad Monster Sad Monster? They are 2 of my favorite monster-themed books.
I designed a whopping 40-page packet around them. Perfect for tossing in a few monsters to help cover standards during Halloween week.
My kiddos personal favorite was the Go Away Big Green Monster patterns. I pass them out and we assemble the monster as I read the story. Make just one for you, or have your students each make their own.
I’ve included a quick & easy bookmark (his nose slips over the page and saves your place) as well as some worksheets too.
To help review shapes, I gave each child their own long green envelope to transform into Frankenstein’s monster. You can buy 24 in a pack at an office supply store for around $2. I slit the tops, so they can feed their monster shapes. It’s a quick, easy & interesting way to whole group assess.
My large file folder monster is another simple & fun way to reinforce shapes, as well as letters and numbers. He munches and crunches these things for lunch. 🙂
Finally, for writing practice, we made a “My Monster Feels” class book, after we read Glad Monster Sad Monster. My kiddos voted on a silly and happy monster face for our cover.
