My name is Melvin. I am a green monster. My body is oval-shaped like a potato and covered with warts. I look out from under your bed with my one blue eye, right in the middle of my head. You’ll hear me breathing with my big mouth, but I hope you don’t laugh because I only have five teeth: 3 on top and 2 on the bottom. It’s because I can’t brush my teeth! My stubby arms won’t reach, and I can hardly pick up a toothbrush with my fat fingers. I run around on four feet, and sometimes I trip on my long lizard-like tail!
…and here are a couple of my students’ monsters drawn from my description!
Pretty good huh? 🙂
We talked about the things I could have described better, like the shape of the teeth and legs and shoes… and then they got to work on their own.
Then, they got with a partner, and without showing their monster, read their descriptions and their partners drew. They really did an excellent job! Here are a couple that came really close in their drawings!
I hope everyone has a fantastic Halloween! :o)
