Last week revolved around monsters.
In our mentor text last week we were reading I Need My Monster.
From there we worked on adjectives and dialogue. The kids brainstormed words to create their own monster using a brainstorm sheet from Copeland's Got Class in 3rd. They then made a rough draft narrative that included those 10 adjectives and did a rainbow edit to check their work.
They wrote up a final draft which they glued on one side of a piece of construction paper, and then drew their monster using those same adjectives on the back.
We also reviewed math facts using these mystery monster pictures from Jean Vanderford.
The kids enjoyed it! Hope this helps you. :)
