Go Away Big Green Monster!

This week all the primary classes enjoyed the book GO AWAY BIG GREEN MONSTER! by Ed Emberley. It is a fun book to read aloud with great paper engineering that captivates the students.
There also is an iPad app with different versions of this book. The students loved listening to Ed Emberley read them the story and watching parts of the monster being animated. We also listened to a jazzy song that was written based on the book. 

The Kindergarten students in division 11 listened to the story and then used the iPads for the first time this year. They used the Doodle Buddy app and working in partners, they took turns to draw the big green monster, learning how to change the colour of their drawing tools.

The students in division 10 made big green monster masks and snuck up on Ms Loewen and scared her with their scary monster faces and voices!

The students in divisions 6, 7, 8 and 9 made monster bookmarks...they could make them scary, silly, happy, sad or mad. The students had all sorts of great ideas and started using their bookmarks as soon as they checked out new books!

So if you see any monsters around the'll know where they came from!
