Monsters seem to be a favorite topic with little kids. I’m not sure if it is the fact that they can use their imagination to imagine what they would look like or what it is. But, fact is most kids love monster activities and books. The great thing about some of the monster read-alouds is you can throw in some social-emotional lessons into the mix. Many monster books have monsters with pronounced feelings. What a great way to have emotion discussions with your kids! Here are some monster resources for the primary classroom.
