This Stress-Free Corner product includes a brainstorming handout, graphic organizer, rough draft, final draft, checklist, rubric, and sketch page. I recommend introducing this unit by reading aloud Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are. I invited my third graders to create their own monster in their mind after reading the text.
Through this unit, they had the opportunity to create and present their monster both visually and in writing. This unit takes approximately one week to complete.
