Roll a Monster
We've done a lot of testing this year. A few weeks ago the kids were test weary and so was I, so I tried this activity that I found on Pinterest. It originated from a website called Expressive Monkey. Students roll dice to decide which body shape, eyes, mouth, etc. to draw to make their monster. We played with it for a while. Then they chose one to draw for their book cover. Next they wrote a story about their monster. I had the happiest writers in town!
I posted the finished books on our Tiger Pride board.
