If you are looking for a resource that will easily capture your students' interest in writing and allow them to be creative through art, this is the PERFECT resource for you!
⭐️ The students are asked to draw a monster on the paper provided by the teacher. They are then asked to describe it by writing a very detailed descriptive paragraph...or two...or three. You or they can decide!
⭐️ The student, when finished, gives their descriptive paragraph to a partner to see if they can recreate the same monster based solely on what they have written!
⭐️ Their partner can NOT see their monster until they have drawn it as it is described. Then, the fun part happens...the truth is revealed as the original monster is shared with their partner! Then it's time to switch! Their partner now shares their descriptive writing, and the other kiddo has to try to recreate it. SO MUCH FUN!!!
⭐️At this point, you can display their work in the hallway.
This is perfect for...
✔️ Partner work
✔️ Whole group work
✔️ Weekly writing projects
✔️ Sub plans
✔️ Emergency lesson plans
