What teachers are saying:

"Sometimes I have difficulty with quality, engaging, educational activities for my class and this hits the mark! I have used this activity with three different classes, it's been a hit each time. They love having choices with their monster creations and it's a quick way for me to assess their place value and number sense skills. It also looks super cute hanging on a bulletin board." - Courtneosaurus

"My kids did this activity during an evaluation and they loved it. I also had tons of people come to me when they were done to comment on the cute monsters in the hallway. I will do this every year! I gave the kids different numbers so I was able to differentiate the activity for all my kids! I cannot say enough good things about this!" - Melanie T

These monsters are very simple to make and will make your place value lessons come alive allowing easy differentiation for work on tens, hundreds and thousands!
