Earlier, I blogged about our money, monsters, and robots theme this week. Today we made robots to go with our reading story "My Robot". We also made our own monsters today and brainstormed adjectives and verbs to go with our monsters. Tomorrow we will use these words to write cinquain poems. We will also make a Double Bubble Map comparing and contrasting robots and monsters. The kids are obsessed with this all! I also got really good stories from them yesterday about where the monster went when the kid in the story told him to go away (Go Away, Big Green Monster!).
I know this looks like complete chaos, but the kids think it's the greatest thing ever. They LOVE their robots and monsters.
(I love the arms on that left robot... such personality, just like the student!)
Here are my bags of 'Monster Munch' that the kids will buy with fake money on Friday. I posted the labels in a previous post.
