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.
