This week, the kindergarten classes and the preschool class met the Big Green Monster! We read Ed Emberly's Go Away Big Green Monster! using the iPad app.
First, they were given a blank monster with circles at the top spelling out their names, as well as round stickers with letters. The children needed to peel off the stickers and put them on the circles to spell their first name; in preschool, the letters were given in the right order, but in Kindergarten there was an added challenge of scrambled stickers!
Then we read the book one page at a time and the children colored their monster according to the narrator. When the book was finished, we listened to the sing-along version of the book. The children really enjoyed the animations that the app provided!
