Organic Shape Monsters, First Grade

This lesson was borrowed from Pre K and K Sharing.  Thank you!

First Graders made these adorable organic shape monsters.  Our monsters were inspired by Jeremy Draws a Monster, by Peter McCarty. We reviewed geometric shapes and then moved onto organic shape.  Using a yarn loop, students created their own organic shape and then traced the outline of their yarn loop.  The next step was creating monster features, and really anything goes.  I provided monster parts handouts for inspiration.  Lastly students added a patterned border and painted over the entire page with watercolor paint.  Aren't these little organic guys so cute?

L-O-V-E the crown on this monster!
