our classroom monster

Meet our classroom monster, Joe the Monster...
We wrote to our principal about our classroom rules.
A lot of my students wrote about the need to work quietly.
OK, maybe I guided them in that direction just a little.
Our principal responded by sending us a package that include a letter, an "our monster" page and some monster posters. 
He also sent us a Classroom Monster to watch over 
our class and report back to him. 
We were over the moon excited and got busy right away naming our monster. Fricky, Blueberry and Three Eyes were all in the running, but Joe was the winning name. 
 It should be no surprise that we had the quietest 
workshop times ever after the arrival of Joe. 
We are looking forward to Joe's first report.

Get your own Classroom Monster HERE.
There are monster cutouts included in the pack,
or you can order an Uglydoll to use as your monster...
