This mini-unit takes three language arts sessions (longer depending on extensions) and is great for getting to know your students at the beginning of the year, getting an informal assessment of some basic language arts skills and reinforcing positive character building.
The unit uses three picture books with a monster theme and allows for text-to-self and text-to-text comparisons. It is 10 pages long and includes 3 lessons, 3 printable worksheets to accompany each lesson, and extension activities. If you create enough Monster Mania you may be able to piggy-back off the theme all year!
