Monster Exchange

My class is getting ready to participate in a fun writing project...the MoNsTeR eXcHaNgE!!

We will draw our very own monsters and write a descriptive paragraph about them. Then, we will send a digital copy of only our description to another second grade class.  We will recieve their descriptions and create a drawing that "matches" the writing. Then, we'll all get to take a look at the original illustrations and see how close they match! :)

I'm SUPER excited to try this with my kiddos!

I'll post more about the process once we get underway. I heard about this project from another teacher and we plan to share through our school websites, but there is also a "Monster Exchange" website which will walk you through the process. Click on the picture below to check it out! (Don't you just love the cute clipart Kristen from First Grade Teaching created - stinkin' adorable!)

For an added math component, I had my second grade students create story problems using characteristics of their monsters. For example: My monster had 12 antennae, her sister tried to give her a ponytail and 5 fell out. How many antennae does she have left? The kids loved it! I kept the papers and used one as a Math Talk each morning.
