Monster Creation

I read my class I Need My Monster by Amanda Noll, one of the books nominated this year for the California Young Reader Medal. We had a few minutes to spare so I had each of them use Educreations to describe and draw what kind of monster they would like hiding under their bed. I gave each of them only about 7 minutes with no pre-planning time, more as a fun activity than as a way of grading descriptive writing. They turned out really cute. It's a great book, we all enjoyed it, and in the future I would build more Educreations planning time in following this read aloud.
