"When Monsters Play Outside," teaches students about appropriate playground behavior. Yes it's true. This misbehaving little monsters are at it again. And boy, do they ever break the playground rules. This fun and silly behavior story compares how monsters behave at recess to how students behave at recess

Sample Story Text:

"When monsters play outside,
they show no monster pride.
They stand up in the swings.
They hang from lots of things..
They roll in mud and dirt.
They're always getting hurt...."

This new book in my "When Monsters Go To School" series also includes 4 "Don't Be a Monster..." classroom posters that can be used to review appropriate playground behavior after you have read the story or you can post them around the classroom or gym or serve as great visual reminders.
