monster fun

The students in divisions 10, 11 and 12 have been having some monster fun in the library. We read the books Go Away Big Green Monster! and Glad Monster, Sad Monster, both by artist and author Ed Emberley.

We also read/viewed/listened to the story Go Away Big Green Monster! on the iPads and the students learned how to "swipe" to turn the pages and use the interactive features of the ebook.                                                

The students used the app Doodle Buddy to create their own monsters on the iPad. The students are becoming "experts" with Doodle Buddy and have learned how to changed colours, drawing tools, drawing mediums and the width of their lines.
Here is a collage of iPad monsters from some students from each class!

The students then each made their own monster character puppet. We talked about dialogue and the students practiced having their monsters talk to each other...all part of storytelling and developing an understanding of characters and story.

A little monster fun in the library!
