I must admit, I have a bit of affection for monsters. Not scary, spooky monsters, but furry and cute monsters like Elmo and Cookie. Therefore, I just had to make a MoNsTeR learning center for my little guy. I found the most wonderful free resources online....
1+1+1=1 has a Happy Monsters Tot Pack. My favorite activity has little monster cards that are different colors with different amounts of eyes. I'm going to use it for counting with googly eyes and for color recognition. So cute!
2 Teaching Mommies also has an adorable Monster Unit.
I love the alphabet Monster Mash Game.Source: 2 Teaching Mommies
I'm still in the process of putting the center together. I'd like to get some of the games laminated. I didn't use everything from each unit- just the activities that I thought would be appropriate for little man at this stage. (22 months)
I decided to make a mini-book to put inside. I illustrated the following poem.
This little monster has a big red nose
This little monster has purple toes.
This little monster plays all night.
This little monster is such a fright.
And this little monster goes:
"I'm not scary, I'm just silly me."
I'll post little man and his new center once I get it all together! Thank you to these wonderful teachers/mommies who provide these resources. What a blessing!
Happy Monster Fun,
