This cartoon is one in a series that accompany the song "The Journey," which is a song about homographs. This cartoon illustrates the verb "lives," as in, "My monster lives!"
(its partner is the plural noun "lives," as in "the cat has nine lives."). This song is a great follow-up to the Montessori Homograph Key Experience, but the song and the cartoons work nicely with any elementary language arts/word study curriculum. An MP3 recording of the song, as well as lyrics and chords, are also available on TpT.
