Also included in:
Rooted in Reading: Special Editions BUNDLE

How I Met My Monster by Amanda Noll is the prequel to I Need My Monster. This story shows how Gabe came to be Ethan’s monster. The monsters have a try-out to see who is going to be the best fit! This unit encompasses everything you need for a week of ELA instruction. It can be used around the Halloween season, but it is not limited to that time of year.  The activities are NOT “Halloween” specific. We have differentiated several of the activities so that it can work in most 1st and 2nd grade classrooms. Check out the preview to see the different activities we have included.
