This book is so silly and cute! It's simply a list of 10 tips for living with a monster. Did you know that monsters like country music? And they like to buy bubble gum? haha.. This short book is perfect for a 30 minute session. Back in my teaching days, I used this with a third grade classroom. I had students create their own monsters and pen their own guide. It was so much fun! Here are a few ideas:
1) Describing - students can describe the monster in the text or draw monsters and describe them!
2) Topic Maintenance - students talk about monsters. This little 10 step guide provides a lot to talk about!
3) Following Directions - create a barrier game! First, have students draw their own monsters then students provide each other with directions for drawing their monsters. They'll have fun comparing their work and determining if their directions were clear or unclear.
4) Writing - students can write their own guide. Students who have difficulty writing can record themselves making their list or can even draw it!
I created a little template that students can use! This can also be used in a regular classroom! There's a template with lines and one without (for those who need to draw).
