So this post may not include as many teaching resources, but had to be shared. My son’s first birthday was this past weekend and it was a success. The theme: little monsters. My son is definitely not a little monster. He is super sweet and such a good boy. LOVE him. I just thought the little monsters were cute. 🙂 I found these monster invitations at Party City which prompted the theme.
Here is a pic.
Then in talking with the Speech-Language Pathologist at my school, who also happens to be an incredible baker, I decided to make monster cupcakes. She gave me lots of great tips and the cupcakes turned out awesome! She has a baking blog, which is really cool. Here is the link.
And here are my monster cupcakes.
I was pretty proud of my monsters. I’d like to create monster themed teaching resources to use for the fall. I have this book, The Monster Who Loved Books, by Keith Faulkner and illustrated by Jonathan Lambert.
It’s really cute. It’s adventurous and touches on different genres. It is also a pop-up!
I love the picture on the back cover.
And I found these monster stickers at Crayons to Computers.
So these should be fun to use for a monster activity. I will have to work on an idea this summer.
Lastly, I wanted to share that tomorrow, Thursday May 2, is National Day of Prayer. If you are a teacher, I encourage you to pray for your students. You might be the only one who does.
