This is a wonderful book about a little boy named Bobby who thinks that his teacher, Ms. Kirby, is a monster. After Bobby runs into his teacher at the park and they spend the day together, he realizes she is not so bad after all!
After reading this delightful story, students made paper airplanes. Students enjoyed flying their airplanes in the library. However, students were warned that if their teacher caught them throwing airplanes in the classroom,they might turn into monsters like Ms. Kirby.
This was a great activity to add to my Makerspace station. I recycled pages from worn out, discarded books for students to use to make their airplanes.
Here are a few great books that students enjoyed.
