Get ready to write about some monsters! Play dough monsters, to be exact! This writing lesson was a huge HIT in my classroom this year! We started the project with the students making their own play dough monsters. I gave each student one of the small containers of play dough (like for birthday favors) and then I laid out google eyes, feathers, pom pon balls, pipe cleaners, and beads on each table. The students could create any type of monster using these supplies and they really came up with some creative ideas!
Once the monsters were created, students had to fill out an information chart with some details about their monster. This included a physical description, habitat, diet, and more! Students used these charts as their pre-writing sheet and they used the information to write detailed monster informational reports. These reports are 2-4 pages long, they were really into it!
There are additional writing sheets included in the pack as well. These include monster adjectives, monster descriptions, monster poetry, a letter to the monster, and a monster warning note. The warning notes were so funny! If you are interested in this packet, please click here for the link to my TPT store!
