A Glad/Sad Monster class book is also included in the packet.

This is also a great review for numbers 1-10.  Click on the link to view/download the Monster Shape booklet A sweet graphing extension is included.

Print a copy of my patterns and make a template, so that you can easily create a file folder Frankenstein's monster head.

Tape the sides of the file folder shut, to make the perfect "feeding envelope".  Pass out an assortment of various colored "food" shapes.

I edged the black hair with purple puffy paint, and the mouth is neon-orange.  The stitches are outlined with silver glitter glue.  I added more dimension with "diamond" rhinestone "screws" on the neck bolts that I wrapped with aluminum foil.  I also added "monster wiggle eyes" to the yellow circles, so they seem to pop off the page.

Children chant: "Monster, Monster, munch and crunch.  What shape food would you like for lunch?"  The teacher says a shape, and any child holding that shape puts it inside the monster's head

Since a huge part of the plot of Mary Shelley's Frankenstien, was the fact that her monster had no name; add to the fun by encouraging students to name their monster and introduce him during circle time.

It's one of my favorite Halloween songs.  The link is to a YouTube cartoon video featuring the song.

I've been contemplating whipping up some monster-themed 10-frames and cute monster alphabet cards.  If this is of interest to you, shoot me an e-mail and I'll start designing.  diane@teachwithme.com
