There Was An Old Monster

First graders in Mrs. Mullane's class have been begging to paint since the first day of school. They got their chance this week when we read and illustrated the story "There Was An Old Monster" by Ed, Adrian, and Rebecca Emberley. This also connected literacy ideas such as rhyming, and sequencing with student art.

You can listen to the song that accompanies the music here:

  1. ADORABLE! I am now following your blog. Did the kids use sponges or paint brushes?

  2. We used these circle sponges that made painting so much fun, and added texture!
