Green Monsters & Shape Monsters

Today was Green Day!  Green day is a always a blast because we do some really fun activities with the book Go Away Big Green Monster by Ed Emberley--this is definitely a must read on green day!  We made our very own green monsters as well as a class BIG monster.  This activity is always so much fun!

We also have been learning our shapes this week 
and today we made shape monster glyphs.  

Here is the Glyph for the shape monster.

Here is the sheet to analyze the data from the glyph.

  1. Jamie,
    Thanks for sharing these cute ideas! I have a monster theme in my first grade this year and had planned to read "Go Away, Big Green Monster." Now I have a project to do with it (plus a math activity.)

  2. You are SO welcome! I hope that you and your kiddos have fun! :)

  3. Thank you for sharing! I can't wait to start our Monster unit next week!

  4. Hi Jamie,

  8. Thanks for the idea! I did this activity today with my Preps. It looks great on display.

  9. I can not download the templates. Do I need to sign up for anything?

  10. I love the idea, but I can't download it from Scribd. :-( We're getting ready to study shapes, and it's a great activity!
