The"When Monsters Go to School," back to school behavior book teaches students about appropriate classroom behavior in a fun and silly way. The story compares how monsters behave at school to how students behave at school.
Sample Story Text:
"When monsters go to school,
they break every rule.
They scream and yell inside,
Hold up their books and hide--
Daydream with open eyes--
Chomp all their school supplies..."
Although I wrote this book a few years ago and have been sharing it for a while, I have just fully updated it with new clip art and " Don't Be a Monster..."classroom posters. These classroom posters can be used to review appropriate behavior after you have read the story or you can post them around the room to serve as a great visual reminder.
