We started our Monster Mash today by reading the book, I Need My Monster by Amanda Noll. I absolutely love the illustrations in this book. It is filled with loads of descriptive words and is great for Halloween. After our read aloud, students responded to some multiple choice, short response, and extended response questions. You can find my literature pack on this book here.
Then students wrote letters to the monster under the bed persuading him to come back along with other fun monster related writing prompts. They topped their papers with cute monsters and we used these to decorate our hallway. You can find my monster theme writing pack here.
For math, students reviewed addition and subtraction problems with a monster match-up activity during centers.
We ate a delicious monster cupcakes for snack and drank some juice.
We also ate a monster mash snack containing popcorn, M&Ms and candy corn while we watched a few clips from the movie Monsters, Inc.!
