LEARN

Monster Mind

Alliteration is when two or more words are used in a row (or close together) beginning with the same letter or consonant sound. A great example of this are the tongue twisters like “Sally sells Seashells” or “Peter Piper. ” Challenge your child(ren) to make a phrase or sentence using alliteration for every letter for the word MONSTER.  We’ll go first – Munching Monsters Meet on Mondays!  

CREATIVITY CHALLENGE

Draw a Me Monster!

If your child loves friendly Monsters, they will really LOVE the collections of books written and illustrated by Baltimore’s own David Zobel! Join David as he reads his book ‘MeMonster’ and then teaches your child how to draw the main character! (Love the book? Buy it here.)
