First graders read the story Go Away Big Green Monster!, by Ed Emberley. We discussed all the shapes that made up the Big Green Monster in the story. First graders also learned about the art term collage, assembling one piece of art by using different materials to create it. First graders used different color construction paper to cut out shapes to create their very own monster. They started by first drawing and cutting out the head. They paid close attention to their gluing skills, as well, making sure everything was glued totally flat. Lastly we added googley eyes to make the monsters extra spooky!
