I am GREEN with envy on how cute these symmetrical paint blot monsters turned out.  Why is kid art so much cuter than adult's?  I adore the uniqueness of each and every one!  We also added an attribute sheet & writing piece to extend the lesson.  The kids had a ROARing good time & were very proud of their creations.  

The attribute sheet can be found at the end of this document, and if you would, please leave me a comment on what you like, would change or would add below.

Our monsters started like this... Not so SCARY:
A MONSTROUS work in progress:

The Cow Is Over The Moon For This Math Activity That Accompanies Nursery Rhymes

Hi all!  I thought I would post another cross-curricular activity that we incorporated for our nursery rhyme theme ... more specifically "Hey Diddle Diddle".
Students were allowed to pick the number of craters {within a range} that they drew on their moon... next year I may have them roll dice to obtain their number.  Then each Smart Tart got to recreate the cow jumping over the moon {both were printed on card stock}.  I poked a hole right above the moon and slipped the pipe cleaner through it and taped it to the back.  The cow is also taped to the pipe cleaner.  Hope you are able to use this with the Smart Tarts in your classroom.

Pick your up HERE.
