As part of my writer-in-residence at Charlie Lake Elementary, I’ve been leading my students in many monster-themed activities. Today, we worked on “monster menus,” in which the students imagined a take-out restaurant that specializes in monster grub.
The students invented a monster menu and decorated the take out boxes for their menu items. Afterwards, they began writing stories in which they imagined what would happen if the delivery showed up with the wrong order. Us human types get pretty upset when our take out orders are messed up . . . you can only imagine how upset a monster is!
