Monster Stew

  • Story by Janie Spaht Gill, Ph.D.
  • Illustrations by Bob Reese
  • DOMINIE PRESS / Pearson Learning Group
  • GLE: Illustrations / Pictures (pre-kindergarten, kindergarten & Grades 1 & 2)
  • Curriculum Extension Activities
    • Form two columns on a chart, one for edible foods and the other for inedible foods.  Have the children cut pictures of food out of magazines and glue them in the appropriate column.  You can use this same activity for foods that we eat with our hands, and foods that we eat using utensils.
    • Have the children brainstorm some of their favorite foods as you write them along the bottom of a chart.  Then have the children pick and draw the food they like best (from the ones listed).  They then glue their favorite foods in the appropriate column, forming a bar graph.  Discuss the results.
    • Use the sentence pattern of the story as a basis for an alphabet oral language game.  Have the children sit in a circle.  Give each child a turn to name a type of food that could be added to a pot, in alphabetical order: “Add some apples.”  “Add some bananas,” etc.  They can also draw the food on a piece of paper and cut it out.  Then as each child takes a turn, they can actually drop the food into a pot in the center of the circle.
