Mrs. Lehman's class had been writing directions on how to draw their own monster. They invited us to download their stories, follow their directions, and draw what we thought their monsters look like. When asked if my class would like to read and draw their monsters, they overwhelmingly cheered and said "yes!" As we ended our first talk, we decided to meet again to compare each other's drawn monsters.
The next day, the monster directions were downloaded and handed out to my students. They asked for help on some unfamiliar words and were so engaged in drawing Mrs. Lehman's monsters. We are so excited to meet again soon to see how close we are in following their directions and drawing their monsters.
