Today we had fun with monsters. We read lots of monster stories and poems. Leonardo the Terrible Monster was our favorite so we read it twice! This is one of the poems we read. This poem is so much fun because it is easy to act out. We acted scared for the first two lines and then we pretended to “sneak” around the room and yelled, “Boo!”
We brainstormed a list of verbs and adjectives for monsters and then we made our own monsters and wrote list poems.
I gave them a 12×18 sheet of white construction paper that was folded in thirds. They used a black crayon to draw their monsters and then they painted them with watercolors. We cut them out and glued them on black paper. They turned out to so cute! Here are some pictures of some of the monsters and list poems.
