Next came the tricky part. You had to write a description of your monster that was so detailed and exact that someone else could make a perfect copy without ever getting to see it. This took several tries. We all wrote a first draft and exchanged it with a partner. No one even came close. Back to the drawing board! We brainstormed a list of what had caused problems and the students realized they needed an organized system to describe each part exactly.
We did second and third drafts, and then we decided they were ready. Our monster descriptions have been sent to our Book Buddies at Sinclair Elementary. We can’t wait to see if they can draw them accurately! Stay tuned for the results next week & a slideshow of our Monster Gallery!
