A Monstrous Way to Learn

This week my son has been jumping at the bit to do extra school activities.  It all started with this movie, which in turn led to non-stop chatter about writing a sequel to it.  From there it was pretty easy to determine I needed to create some fun monster activities.

This monstrous theme was a huge hit.  Here’s a few pics.

Tracing Monster University Names
Getting my son to do any writing activities usually requires “pulling teeth.”  However, he was begging for me to print this sheet off for him.  (From K Extension Pack)
Monster Skip Counting Puzzles
I printed this activity 4 pages to a sheet to save some paper.  I cut the puzzles apart and he glued them all to the same piece of construction paper. He used the skip counting mats (not shown here) to make sure he was gluing down the right strip. This activity worked on skip counting by 2s, 5s, and 10s. (K Extension Pack)
Monster Graphing
I think he did this activity at least 3 times in the same day.  We just put our sheet in the Crayola Dry-Erase Activity.  He rolled the die down the stairs for a little more exercise. *wink*  (K Extension Pack)
Monster Pre-Writing
As I mentioned before, my boy hates writing practice, but he was all over this activity.  He even added some kids behind the doors for the monsters to scare. (From Preschool Pack)
Labeling Parts of a Monster
This was another activity that we pulled out of the preschool pack.  He actually cut out all the words by himself!  He is getting so much better at cutting.  All our practice is paying off!

We have a few more we haven’t gotten to yet, including some from Disney’s Family Pack.  If you want to grab this fun kindergartner monster theme pack and/or a tot or preschooler pack head to 2 Teaching Mommies.
