Looking for a Back to School activity that is fun and still addresses some math standards? A glyph is a fun CRAFTIVITY to practice following directions and data analysis that your students will love!

TWO versions of the Monster Glyph are included: one for the beginning of school and one that is a generic version for any time of year, especially Halloween. Both versions create the same cute monster, but the glyph key, corresponding graphs, and writing prompts are different depending on which season you choose to use them. So the best part is that if you can't fit in the activity during one part of the year, you can always pull it out another time.


What TEACHERS are saying about this product:

♥ "Our monster glyphs came out so cute! They are still hanging in our room. Thanks for the awesome craftivity! =)"

♥ "This was so great for all of my kids to gain a better understanding of following directions! They were completely engaged the entire time :)"

♥ "Read Monsters Love School to my 3rd graders on the first day of school and this was the perfect addition to the read aloud-without having to create everything on my own! It was a great first 2 days of school activity and tied in perfectly with the book and gave the students a chance to tell me, and their classmates, about their summer!!"

♥ "Used the back to school gylph for curriculum night bulletin board. The students enjoyed putting the monsters together and I got an idea of them as a writer as the beginning of the year. Makes a really cute (and fairly) easy bulletin board."


This download will include 33 pages. Included in those pages is:

  • A color and black and white key page for each glyph (School/Monster)
  • 8 pages of monster parts to color and cut
  • 12 graphs to use to graph students answers (6 for each glyph)
  • A writing prompt for each glyph with Kindergarten lined monster paper or upper elementary lined monster paper.
  • An extra lined sheet in case you want your students to write more than one page for each prompt.

To prep, there are 3 options. You may choose to run copies on white paper for students to color, you may choose to run copies on colored paper, or you may choose to copy and laminate a few of each part to serve as a template for students to trace and cut.

Share the key with your students in whatever way is most appropriate. At a the Kindergarten level, you would read the directions aloud and the class would work at the same pace. At a 3rd grade level, you may broadcast the key on a screen and allow students to work at their own pace.

Students can share their monsters and analyze each others’ work to complete the graphs. Monster Paper with a writing prompt is also provided to give students an opportunity to write about either the coming school year or their monsters.

**Please note that this is ONE glyph that can be used TWO different ways. You may use it as either a Back to School Glyph or a Monster Glyph. You decide which key to use but students are using the same monster pieces for both glyphs.**
