Use this activity from my Kindergems store to help develop student's vocabulary. Brainstorm for great describing words and use them to complete the fill-in poem about monsters. The monster topic really encourages creativity - especially around Halloween! Depending on the age of the students you may want to display the words for them to copy or challenge them to be "risky" writers and sound them out. Use the drawing page before writing the poem to help the students think of ideas or after to illustrate their written work.
